"Better Than Sex" 10 Min No Bake Peach Cobbler
Summer is soon upon us!!! I can already feel the light flow of a cotton summer dress on my thighs and the slight burn of the fresh flip-flop straps digging into my winter-babied feet! Lol... (Ah, the battle wounds of fashion!) I can't WAIT for the heat! Bring it on, I say! This past week with the weather being hot to cold to warm to frigid to boiling to tepid again has put me in the mood for one of my all time favorite summer dishes- peach cobbler! As I am a much better chef than I am baker however, any recipe that could be ruined if you don't get the measurements EXACTLY right is not a recipe you will find in my dessert book! So any sweet treats you ever see me include in this blog you can be rest assured that even the newest of them in the culinary world can ace the dish! (Oh, and I have a small attention span and an even smaller kitchen as many of you know, so you also will be able to finish many of my recipes in under a half hour and by using as few pots, pans, and utensils as possible!) Here goes!
"Better Than Sex" Peach Cobbler:
1 Fresh Peach, sliced
1/2 Can Sliced Peaches, drained well
1 Can Peach Pie Filling
5 Tbsp Butter
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 C Sugar
1/4 C Brown Sugar
1/4 C Almond Flour (or All purpose flour in a pinch)
1/2 C Rolled Oats
In a saute pan over medium heat melt 1 Tbsp of butter then add sliced fresh peach and half can of sliced peaches. When heated to a lightly bubbling, add vanilla extract, cinnamon, and sugar. Remain cooking at a light bubble for about 5 minutes then remove from heat and add can of peach pie filling to pan. When combined, pour filling into bottom of 2 Quart baking dish and set aside.
In a bowl combine brown sugar, flour, rolled oats and the remaining 4 Tbsp of butter. (This part is done easiest by using your well-washed hands, and the best part is licking the remnants off of your fingers when you are done mixing!) The mixture should form a loose crumble, not a paste or dough texture. (If mixture is too doughy or wet you can always add more oats to get to the crumbly texture needed.) Using your fingers, crumble the mixture in small clumps over the top of the peach filling in the baking dish, covering the entire top of the filling. When all of topping is added you can sprinkle lightly with cinnamon if desired.
Bake cobbler in the oven at 350 degrees until the topping is lightly browned, checking it every 5 minutes. Remove from oven and serve hot with a scoop of vanilla bean icecream on the top or allow to cool and serve room temperature with caramel syrup drizzled over the top. This will surely be a new classic in your recipe ensemble!
