I was at my local Farmer’s Market the other day and the peaches looked (and smelled) fantastic! They inspired me to dig in my “pile” for a recipe that would make these babies shine!
The contender…Cinnamon Biscuit Peach Cobbler! Now, doesn’t that sound heavenly?!?! The recipe came from Taste of Home magazine.
And, since today is the last day of National Peach Month, I thought it was appropriate to post this today!
1 1/2 cups flour
1 Tbsp pus 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar, divided
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
6 Tbsp cold butter, cubed
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp butter, melted
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 Tbsp cornstarch
3/4 tsp grated lemon peel
1 cup water
9 cups peaches, sliced and peeled (about 7-8 peaches)
In a small bowl, combine the flour, 1 Tbsp brown sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in cold butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk just until blended.
Transferred to a floured surface an knead 10-12 times. Pat into a 12 inch square. Brush with melted butter.
Combine the walnuts, cinnamon and remaining brown sugar; sprinkle over dough to within 1/2 inch of edge. Roll up jelly roll style. Seal edged and set aside.
For filling, combine brown sugar, cornstarch and lemon peel in a large sauce pan. Gradually stir in water until blended. Add peaches and bring to a boil. cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Transfer to a greased 13 in by 9 in baking dish.
Cut biscuit dough into 12 1 inch slices; arrange biscuits over filling. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
Is it a Keeper?
This was pretty good! The biscuits were great with plenty of cinnamon and walnuts. And, the sweet peaches were covered in a nice thick sauce. The perfect end of summer recipe!
I have to admit, it seemed pretty complicated when I read through it. But, it really wasn’t that difficult to make. I used my food processor to mix up the biscuit dough — which made it so easy!
And, the peaches were so ripe that getting them ready was a piece of cake, or should I say cobbler?!?!
All in all, this was a pretty good recipe! I’ll definitely be making it again! And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to enjoy some of this yummy cobbler! Enjoy!
