When they’re in season, Trader Joe’s carries a large box of peaches – about twelve of them – for around five dollars. They’re delicious but even between my husband and I, it’s hard to eat them all before they go bad. This past weekend, we ended up with six ripe peaches and a BBQ to attend at a friend’s house. I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of a better excuse to whip up a fuss-free peach cobbler. I looked around for recipes but didn’t find one I liked through and through. So, I picked my favorite bits from each and just sort of winged it. Lucky for me, it turned out fabulously!
Ingredients for the filling:6 ripe peaches 1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon nutmeg pinch of salt *The one thing I did not have which I think would have really added something is the juice of one lemon.
I wash my produce with Trader Joe’s Fruit & Vegetable Wash; it’s more thorough than just using water but more gentle than using dish soap, and still removes any pesticides, dirt, or residue. I highly recommend it!
Cut and pit the peaches; it is up to you whether or not you want to peel them.
Toss the peaches with the rest of the ingredients until the peaches are coated evenly.
Pour the peaches along with any remaining juices into a pie pan or 9×9 square pan. Bake for ten minutes at 375 degrees.
While the peaches are baking, make your crumble topping. I used my go-to recipe, and added pistachios for a twist.
Take the peaches out of the oven and coat with a generous layer of the crumble topping.
Put the cobbler back in the oven and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Remove when the crumble is toasty golden brown and peaches are soft.
The mix of the brown sugar and the juice of the peaches almost created a caramel which was insanely delicious. This recipe is interchangeable with different types of fruit in the filling or nuts in the crumble. I of course, topped it with vanilla ice cream, but don’t have a picture because we all inhaled ours before I remembered to take a picture. Eek! It happens (insert embarrassed Emoji here). To me, peach cobbler is one of those quintessential summer time desserts. What do you think? Do you cobbler?
