Pretty as a Peach Cobbler!

Pretty as a Peach Cobbler!

This started out as a cobbler for my wonderful parents as thanks for letting us borrow their big ol’ truck to drive up to Albany… but then I forgot it in Houston when we went to get the truck. Dang! It turned out to be a blessing in disguise, though, since Mom’s more of a pie-crusty-cobbler person and this is in the biscuit-crust camp. Luckily, the girls at work like biscuit-crust cobblers, so they got to enjoy this cobbler as I left them for the great North 🙂

As I said last week, it’s definitely peach season in Texas right now, so of course it has to be cobbler season as well! This recipe highlights the natural sweetness of the peaches with honey, cinnamon and cornstarch for a nicely spiced, syrupy filling with a light, almost shortbread-like crust that also incorporates cinnamon for extra yumminess!

This is a great recipe to make ahead for a picnic (it is Fourth of July tomorrow!) and enjoy with family, friends and vanilla ice cream. The tasty crust soaks up both the melty ice cream and the sweetly syrupy peaches. You can even follow my lead and bake it in a disposable pan so you don’t have to worry about clean-up or leaving a pan behind!
