Peach Cobbler

Ontario peaches have been abundant and on sale these past few month, so we've been enjoying our fair share of peaches. The kids absolutely love eating fresh, juicy peaches and look forward to the time of year when we can find some local peaches to eat. I'd have to say, there is nothing better than biting into that first sweet and juicy peach. It almost makes me swoon every time! The only thing better, I think, would be peach cobbler.

Peach cobbler reminds me of Poor Man's Pudding, made with peaches. By that I mean, the tender peaches are on the bottom, with a fluffy cake like topping. So, whenever I get the chance, I love to make peach cobbler. The smell of it cooking is SO intoxicating. Sweet aromas of peach and vanilla fill the house and make us all anxious to dig into the cobbler with some vanilla ice cream. The kids raved about the cobbler and I think if I would have let them, they might have eaten the whole thing. It was out of this world good, looks awesome and is the perfect end, to a wholesome meal.

Peach Cobbler
adapted from Tasty Kitchen via Eat, Live, Run

    6-8 large ripe peaches
    1/4 C vanilla sugar
    1 Tbs cornstarch
    1/2 C butter, softened
    1 large egg
    1/2 C sugar
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 tsp grated lemon zest
    3/4 C flour
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1 pinch salt

 Preheat the oven to 375° F.

Peel the peaches and cut in half. Remove the pit and slice each half into 3 or 4 wedges.

Combine the peaches, the vanilla sugar, and cornstarch in a large mixing bowl. Stir occasionally, until the sugar dissolves, 5 to 7 minutes.

Cream together the butter and remaining 1/2 cup sugar in a separate mixing bowl, until smooth. Beat in the egg, vanilla, and lemon zest until the batter is smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl once or twice as necessary.

Add the flour, baking powder, and salt and stir until just combined.

Transfer the peaches to an 8-inch square-baking pan. Drop the dough in rounded tablespoonfuls over the fruit.

Bake until the fruit is bubbling and the crust is golden, 50 to 55 minutes. Let the cobbler cool slightly and serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
