Peach Delight Cobbler:

 

I recently ran a recipe from one of my auction friends and a small cookbook she had created a few years back.  Genelle and her husband sit in front of me at a local auction I attend almost every weekend, and we’ve all become good friends and often go out for ice cream after the auction.

Genelle surprised me recently when she revealed that she had created this cookbook of some of her favorite recipes and had sold copies of the book in a small antiques and collectibles shop that she ran here in town for many years.  As I mentioned before, you just never know about your friends do you?

I was honored that she gave me one of the few remaining copies of her book and I quickly set out to try some of her recipes.  The recent post and recipe for Blueberry Bread was the first one I tried and it turned out great in my humble opinion.  As I mentioned then, another auction friend that typically sits behind me, brought me a large bag of fresh Blueberries that she picked from plants at her home.  It just seemed to work out that I should try the Blueberry Bread first.

Another recipe that caught my attention was called Apple Delight and I hope to give that one a try before long as fall moves in and area apples become available.  I’ll still have to wait a few weeks on that one though.

Peaches are in full season at the moment.  I was fortunate enough to be able to pick up some peaches a week or so back from Pee Dee Orchards down on Hwy. 74 East in Lilesville, North Carolina.  So, with peaches instead of apples, I adapted Genelles recipe and came up with this Peach Delight Cobbler.  I loved it and hope you will too.  It’s not one of those cobblers where the flour rises up in the dish as it cooks to create the cake part of the cobbler, it’s more like a thick crumb topping on top of fresh sliced peaches.  It’s certainly worth giving a try and doesn’t require but just a few simple ingredients.

Ready for some warm Peach Delight Cobbler, maybe with some Ice Cream on top?  Alright then… Let’s Get Cooking!

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, ingredients.
Peach Delight Cobbler Recipe:  You’ll need these ingredients.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, add some flour.
We’ll make the topping first.  Start by placing the Flour in a medium size mixing bowl.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, add the brown sugar.
Add the loosely packed Brown Sugar.  Brown Sugar is typically pressed into a measuring cup to be sure you have the full amount needed as measured,  but it’s not necessary with this recipe, just lightly fill the measuring cup and you’ll be good to go.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, slice the margarine.
Margarine should be about room temperature.  Just slice it up right on its wrapper.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, add the margarine.
Then, toss it in on top of the Brown Sugar.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, work it together with a fork.
Use a fork and work the ingredients together until it’s crumbly.  This will take a minute or two to accomplish but keep mashing and spreading it until it looks a bit like this.  Larger lumps of remaining butter will not present a problem.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, slice the peaches.
Peel and slice up the Peaches, then add them into your baking dish.  I’m using a 2 quart round dish but something similar will do.  I prefer the deeper dish because I know it’s going to bubble up a good bit and I don’t want it making a big mess inside the oven when it does.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, add granulated sugar.
Sprinkle the Granulated Sugar over the Peaches.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, add salt.
Add a dash of Salt.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler,
Sprinkle on the Ground Cinnamon.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, toss gently to mix.
Grab a large spoon and gently toss the peaches around to mix it all together.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, add topping.
Add the topping mixture.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, cover completely.
Continue adding the topping until you’ve got the Peaches covered.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, add sprinkles.
This part is optional:  If you have them handy, add some sugar Sprinkles.  I just happen to have this container from Wilton and like adding it to my baked desserts.  If you don’t have any around, no problem.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, ready to bake.
OK… I might have got a little heavy handed with the Sprinkles.  Anyway, here is our Peach Delight Cobbler all ready for the oven.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes or until done.
Place the cobbler on the middle rack of your oven and let it bake at 350º for about 30 to 40 minutes or until done.  Ovens vary so be sure to watch it closely and don’t let the top burn.

As the top browns sufficiently, insert a wooden toothpick into the topping portion of the cobbler.  If the toothpick comes out clean, without any crumbs, the cobbler is done and should be removed from the oven.  If you pull the toothpick out, and it has some crumbs attached, let the cobbler bake for a few minutes longer.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, test with a toothpick to make sure topping is done.
Remove the Peach Delight Cobbler from the oven and sit on a wire rack or folded towel on your counter top to let it cool.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler, it gets really hot.
It gets really hot so allow time for it to cool a bit before digging in.

 

Peach Delight Cobbler
Serve it warm and Enjoy!

    I tried the peach cobbler…excellent! And so easy! I really want to try the Cheerwine Cherry Cobbler too, but living in Houston, Tx I’ve only located a very few stores online that carry Cheerwine, none of which are close to my home. Hopefully soon there will be an excuse for me to go to that part of the city.

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Jennifer, Thank you for trying our Peach Delight Cobbler. I’m always happy to hear that the recipe turns out well when someone tries it. I do hope you’ll get a chance real soon to make the Cheerwine Cherry Cobbler. I know you can order the soft drink directly from the Cheerwine company website, so you might want to check that out. They are constantly expanding their territory and hopefully you’ll have it in a hometown store before too long. It wouldn’t hurt to ask your local grocer if he would carry it for you. I’m sure they would be interested to learn that it’s a product you would like to have. Good luck with it and do stop by for another visit with us… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

    Steve, The peach cobbler looks heavenly..I’m making the Salisbury steak recipe tonight. Trying the cobbler this weekend. So glad I found this site. Thanks for the recipes. Linda

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Linda, I really think you’ll like both recipes. I’ll be looking forward to hearing how they turn out for you. Thank you for your comments and I’m thankful you found Taste of Southern. Do visit with us again… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

    Steve, I never buy margarine anymore. Is there a problem with using butter instead of the margarine? Thanks and I really enjoy your recipes. I am originally from Louisiana and the recipes bring back such fond memories of my childhood. Thanks again, Kathy

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Kathy, Butter will not be a problem in the recipe. I wanted to stay as true as possible to the recipe from Gennelle and purchased a pack of margarine just for the recipe. It’s the first pack I’ve bought in I don’t know when. Of course, it IS much cheaper than butter. I’m thankful you have found our website and I sincerely appreciate your comments. I do hope you’ll give the recipe a try and that you will visit with us again… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve
