So if you haven't already noticed, I've been kinda crazy for peach recipes! I'm just trying to take advantage of the juicy, ripe peaches all that I can this summer. Come fall and winter, I'll miss the fuzzy fruit! Peach cobbler is a classic here in the South. Cobblers are one dessert I think of mainly in the summertime. Blackberry is one of my favorite, but of course I'm a sucker for a warm scoop of peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream on a scorching hot day. (Just like it has been here this week!)
Mr. Cozy brought home 1/2 a peck of locally grown white peaches and with family on their way over I knew that a peach cobbler was in order! This was a recipe that I tweaked a little. I added some old fashioned oats and cinnamon to the crust. This is a crust that is close to what my family uses for blackberry cobbler...I just added those two ingredients. I probably could've added another peach to the filling, but everyone loved that way it turned out! Lots of buttery filling and lots of crunchy, sugary crust. The crust isn't a pie crust, but one that you pour over the peach filling, and while it bakes it seeps down into the peaches a bit and hardens on the top for a crispy topping! It's SO good!!!
I just have to show you my flowers.
Mr. Cozy brought me these flowers to work this week--this completely made my day!!! They are so cheerful and beautiful! He is such a thoughtful husband. Truly, I feel like God has blessed me with husband better than I could've asked for!
Mom intoduced me to the use of quilts on the table for a cozy, country look-- and I love it! Sure these colors red, white and blue, but I think I can still use this through July, don't you?
(Yes, that is a little bite I took out the cobbler here. Sshhhh! Please don't tell! :)
It was a beautiful day yesterday as we all ate peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream. There is something comforting about being inside in a cool house, sitting under the fan, on a hot day in July, catching up with loved ones, looking through photo albums and enjoying a summertime treat.
This is an easy recipe that will give you oodles of complements (or at least warm-fuzzies!) when you make it. I hope that you give peach cobbler a try if you haven't already, and try to stay cool out there!
Peach Cobbler with Cinnamon Oat Crust
3- 3 1/2 c. peaches, peeled and thinly sliced
(I has 3 cups)
6 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 c. white sugar
1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. + 1 Tbsp sugar
3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. old fashioned oats
1/2 c. milk
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
Peel and slice your peaches.
( I boiled mine for about 1 minute, then plunged them into an ice bath to easily remove the skin.)
In a medium sized bowl, stir the peaches together with the remaining ingredients. Being careful with the peaches, stir until mixed well.
Pour into a lightly greased medium sized dish, like an 8x8 pan...I used a pie pan.
For the crust:
In a medium sized bowl, mix all of your crust indredients together. If it feels too thick to pour over the filling, add a bit more milk to thin it out.
Pour this over the filling.
Bake at 425 degrees for about 40 minutes or until edges are brown and crispy.
Right out of the oven sprinkle 1 Tbsp. sugar over the entire cobbler so it will glisten!
Allow to sit for a few minutes (if you can) and dig in!
