Sunscreen. Freshly-cut grass. Barbecues. Peach cobbler.
Don’t those things just scream summer?
We are in full ‘the-weather-is-beautiful-and-we-cannot-get-enough-of-it’ mode over here, and after seeing peaches on sale at the grocery store, I didn’t want to do anything else besides go home and make a peach cobbler to enjoy on a Sunday afternoon.
I used a slightly tweaked version of this recipe (I especially loved the peeling method for the peaches at the end of the post).
I mixed about 2 pounds of peeled, sliced peaches with a mixture of brown sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, cinnamon, nutmeg, a tablespoon of flour, and a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and let the mixture cook, alone, for about ten minutes in a 350 degree (F) oven.
While this was cooking, I mixed about 1/2 cup of all purpose flour with 1/4 cup oats, 1/3 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. I cut 2 tablespoons of cold butter into the dough, and then added 1/3 cup of almond milk (out of regular milk), mixing very lightly just until the dough came together.
Once the peaches were out of the oven, I topped the fruit with heaping tablespoons of the biscuit mixture, and then popped it right back into the oven for 30-40 minutes at 375 (F).
During the baking process, I made sure to stop and admire the beautiful plants that we bought at the farmer’s market. What beauties!
After 35 minutes, the house became filled with the smell of caramelized peaches, spices, and vanilla.
I couldn’t resist a piece right then and there! With a little whipped cream, it was summer in a bowl!
Hungry? We have leftovers! Just stop by, anytime ☺
