Easy Peach Cobbler

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend.  I had a craving for my mom’s peach cobbler, so I decided to make some for you.  My mom always makes the best peach cobbler.  She doesn’t use a recipe to create her masterpiece, but it is always amazing and my siblings and I would frequently request it throughout the year.  I decided to put a twist on my mom’s peach cobbler, using fresh peaches instead of canned.  This fast  and easy recipe is mixed all in one bowl and is a great summer dessert.  Watch out, mom!

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Slice the peaches, leaving the skin on.  If you aren’t into peach skin, go ahead and peel it off before slicing the peaches and placing them in the bowl.  Make sure to keep as much of the juice from the peaches as possible.  Look how pretty those fresh peaches are!

 Stir in the flour, baking power, and spices.  I’m a huge nutmeg fan, so I like to add an extra dash of nutmeg.  When you stir everything together, you’ll have a nice batter-type mixture thanks to the juice of the peaches.  It should not be too thick (i.e. it shouldn’t look like cake or brownie batter).  Put the pie crust in the glass or ceramic baking dish of choice before adding the peach filling.  I used a tart dish, but you can also use a pie pan, 13″x 9″ dish or a round baking dish.  Fill the pie crust with the peach filling.

 Add 1/2 tablespoon of butter on top of the peach filling before putting on the top pie crust.  Add a little butter to the top of the pie crust, too.  Guess we’re making this like we’re from the South… If you are averse to butter, you can use an egg wash on top instead.  However, butter really isn’t that bad for you so don’t be afraid of it. It’s just a little bit.
