Quick Peach Cobbler – Doesn’t get any easier. Luscious velvety peaches, all sweet and juicy, just want to be in an easy cobbler. We just let them do their job in this recipe.
Who knew there was such a debate on cobblers? I saw Carla Hall on “The Chew” say different parts of the country had way different cobblers, something I had no idea about. There’s drop biscuit cobbler, cookie top cobbler, Cinnamon Roll Peach Cobbler (which looks really good), and the list went on. But this is the only cobbler I grew up with, and it’s so quick and easy. I thought maybe not everyone has heard of this version, or it might trigger happy memories if you remember having it as a child. My mom had written this in a folder over 50 years ago for cherries, so it can be changed out for any fruit of your choice, canned fresh or frozen.
Thinking about peach cobblers, we went to a couple of county fairs this summer. Neither one of them had any type of baking competitions or prize-winning vegetables on display. One did have a live stock auction. The auction was so packed it was standing room only. it was a lively crowd bidding on a 500 pound pig, we did hear it went for $350.00. I was just surprised to see that many people gathered in one place who all had enough space for a pig, but we were good hour outside the city, so pretty much out in the country. Saw lots of John Deere and cowboy boots, but I did not know John Deere actually made cowboy boots.
We also got to see the Monster Trucks up close, and lo and behold a 19 year old GIRL, Kaylyn Migues, was driving the hell out of this monster truck “JailBird” at Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Missouri. The other one we went to was Madison County Fair at the Highland Speedway in Illinois. That one we saw a demolition derby where they take beat up old cars and just crash into each other until they can’t run anymore. Pretty fun stuff.
The Madison County Fair also had a whole barn full of chickens and roosters, there were feathers flying, and some crazy crowing going on in there. I, however, was a little sad that we missed the “little miss pig tails pageant” that was going to be the next day. But, boy did we have some good food that day from Who Dats in Troy, IL. Who Dats has some really good authentic Cajun food. Their menu also has a cute story about how the owners, “A boy from New Orleans and a girl from the Midwest”, originally met.
Don’t you just love to venture outside your area and discover new places and adventures? That’s how I feel about recipes too. Always on the lookout for something a little different than the normal. Hope you enjoy this one I know we did.
If you happen to have any of this peach cobbler left, why not try to turn it into ice cream? I have a recipe right here!
