Dessert Comfort Food: Peach Cobbler Recipe
EASY DESSERT RECIPES
If you're looking for an easy dessert recipe and one that's quick and easy to make, this peach cobbler recipe will fit the bill.
You can make this dessert any time of year and it makes a wonderful comfort food end to most any kind of meal, whether it's baby back ribs with peach BBQ sauce or roasted chicken.
Peach cobbler is best served warm or rewarmed with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream but people at my house have been known to eat it at room temp rather than wait to heat it up! It's that good.
Don't forget to make up your homemade baking mix and have that on hand for use in this simple recipe for peach cobbler. You can of course substitute commercial baking mix like Bisquick.
RECIPE FOR PEACH COBBLER
Adapted from Betty Crocker Heart Health Cookbook
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon or more cinnamon
- Dash of nutmeg
- 4 cups sliced fresh peaches (6 medium) or 4 cups of drained canned peach slices in juice or thawed frozen peach slices
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 batch of 2+ cups homemade Bisquick baking mix combined with 1/2 cup of milk or buttermilk to make biscuit topping
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Spray an 8 x 8 pan or small casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside.
Mix sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon in saucepan. Add peaches and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens and comes to boil (about 4-5 minutes). Boil and stir for 1 additional minute. Turn peach mixture out into prepared pan and set aside.
Mix the baking mix batter and milk or buttermilk just until moistened but don't overmix. You can either turn out the biscuit dough and knead for a few turns, then cut out biscuits with a drinking glass or biscuit cutter....or merely mix and spoon onto hot peach mixture as drop biscuits.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until the topping is golden. Serve with sweetened or unsweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream or low fat frozen yogurt.
Makes 1 pan or 6-8 servings.
