Summer isn't quite over yet, and before I become completely captivated by fall and all of its splendor, I am enjoying the last few days of warmth and summer goodness. I usually make a homemade peach pie every summer, and the other day, it dawned on me that I hadn't done so yet this year. We've had very little rain this season, so produce hasn't been at its best. As a result, we haven't had too many of our summer favorites.
I had a craving for sweet peach pie last week, but was feeling too tired (thank you, first trimester of pregnancy) to go all out making crust from scratch, etc. I wanted to take the easiest, laziest possible route to peach dessert town, so I opted for a Lazy Peach Cobbler, which took very little time and effort to make.
You will need...
1/4 lb. butter
1 c. self rising flour
1 c. sugar
2/3 c. milk
1 c. canned peaches, sweetened
To get started, add the sugar and peaches in juice, and a pinch of the flour to a sauce pot.
Gently stir as you warm it through. The mixture should start to thicken.
Peach mixture will look like this- do not bring to a boil, and stir frequently.
Melt butter in 9 inch pan.
Mix flour, sugar, and milk; pour over melted butter but DO NOT STIR.
Mixture should look like this.
Pour peaches and juice over batter.
Gently spread peach mixture out.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until well browned.
That's it! Just a few simple steps, and 45 minutes to a delicious peach cobbler! This is a great dessert to serve with vanilla ice cream, any time of the year. If you tend to keep canned peaches in your pantry, this is a great go-to recipe if you're having company, or need to make something to take along to a friend's house or work function!
Give it a try- you won't be disappointed!
