Peaches are in season here now, and my husband brought home a peck tonight, set them down on the counter, and said, "Cobbler!"
I said, "How about a crisp?"
So it's going to be one or the other.
The peaches are small, but perfectly ripe and sweet as honey. I think I'll get them sliced and refrigerated, and whatever I don't eat in the process will go in the cobbler/crisp.
Here's the recipe I use...it calls for apples, but peaches or any other stone fruit work.
* 3 pounds tart apples
* 2 tablespoons lemon juice
* 1/2 cup brown sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
* 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/3 cup granulated sugar
* 1/3 cup rolled oats
* 4 tablespoons cold butter (1/2 stick)
* 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Peel, core and chop apples, toss in a bowl with lemon juice to prevent darkening. In a separate bowl, combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg; stir into apples. Set aside.
In another bowl combine flour, sugar and oats. Cut butter into 8 pieces,and cut butter into flour until mixture looks like crumbs. Stir in nuts.
Butter a 10 X 10-inch baking dish. Spread apples in bottom of baking dish then sprinkle with flour mixture. Bake at 375° for 45 minutes, or until apples are tender and topping is lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature.
I like mine warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
