Quick Cobbler

First of all. I’m back! I was pounded with the cold/flu season and was basically non-functioning for about 6 weeks. Last week I emerged from my bed to find that the world had changed in my absence. None of my kid’s clothes fit, I couldn’t get shoes on their feet because they too had grown – and I don’t even want to talk about the mountains of laundry. After digging out all last week, I finally feel myself again and am ready to bake! Woo-hoo! Sorry for the total void these past few weeks. It was no fun to be sick that long…and I’m pretty much the worst most pathetic sick person on the planet. It’s true, you can ask my husband.

I had my parents over for dinner last night and threw together this quick and easy cobbler for dessert. If you like biscuit toppings for your cobblers, this isn’t the one for you. It’s more of a cakey cobbler. The prep time is literally about 5 minutes. The batter bakes up around the fruit and the sweet smell will fill your house. You can use any combination of fruit. I used raspberries and peaches. Yuuuumy! [Read more…]

Throw Together Peach Crisp

I love fruit crisps. They are so easy and fast…and delicious. I had a few peaches that were rapidly going to turn into fruit fly magnets if I didn’t use them tonight, so I threw together this little crisp.

Peach Crisp

Peach Crisp

Filling:
4 peaches, sliced medium – no need to get fancy and peel them, just leave the skin on
2 T brown sugar
2 T butter
1/2 t cinnamon

Topping:
1 C all purpose flour
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/4 C white sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 C butter, chilled and cut into cubes
1 t cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Spray pie pan with non-stick cooking spray and throw peaches in. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Toss to coat. Dollop butter around on top of peaches. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Mix butter into the dry ingredients until it looks like pea size crumbs. Another way to do this is combine all the topping ingredients in a ziploc bag and moosh together until it forms crumbs. This is especially good if you’re having kiddos help you bake. Sprinkle crumbs over peaches.
  3. Bake for 40-50 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly golden. You may want to put the pie plate on a cookie sheet to catch any drip-over that may occur from all the yummy juicy goodness seeping out. Unless you’re a big fan of cleaning sticky peach goo off your oven.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. No fuss, super easy!
