We had so much fun at Eckert’s earlier this week and now I come home to the biggest question – what to do with all the peaches! Sure, you have your typical cobbler and pies, but I wanted to go outside of the box a little bit do a skillet peach cobbler. Not quite your traditional cobber and it’s a great show stopper dish for a dinner party. I always get curious about what is going on with a cast iron skillet in the oven, don’t you? I also love a skillet dessert because it’s so unexpected, always fun to keep your dinner guests wondering!
When we brought the peaches home, they weren’t ready to eat. We just let them sit on the counter for a couple of days and in no time they were ripe and ready to go. Hattie has been constantly asking for a peaches with her meals and snacks. I can’t say no to healthy eating! She likes to explain that she went peach picking and got them “HERSELF”. While I was preparing the peaches for the cobbler, the juice was just flowing all over my cutting board. Sign of yumminess to come!
Now everyone has an opinion about cobbler and it really comes down to what you grew up on. Truth be told, I don’t recall eating a lot of cobbler growing up, but my husband did and he always had an opinion about how he likes it. This time though, I had a hankering for more of a biscuit like consistency on the top. It almost looks like cookie dough on top. I tend to like a streusel topping with apple items and that’s how my husband would eat all cobbler. I love that this particular topping is hands on with cutting in butter and I always have a helper in the kitchen who loves anything that deals with butter and tasting. I love that Hattie loves to learn and I’m teaching her about measuring and mixing, she really loves getting involved. Kids in the kitchen is always a good choice in my book.
This dish is pretty quick to make, and while it was cooling, I whipped up a little fresh whipped cream. Something about fresh homemade whipped cream just sends this over the top. Don’t mind that we decided to skip nap and bake today. We were just having too much fun!
Try this recipe with your Eckert’s Peaches that you can pick right now. Perfect summer time dessert – just add whipped cream!
Tell me, what is your favorite peach dessert?
