How was your Labor Day weekend? I hope you had a chance to sit back and relax a bit and enjoy family, friends and great weather! Ours was very nice. The weather was about 90 which is roughly 20 degrees above average for our area this time of year, but we went to a few family picnics and just enjoyed a little down time. Yesterday I did a little cleaning around the house because it was a too hot to get out to my garden. I kept staring at the delicious fresh peaches I had on my counter that I used for those Peach Crumble Bars last week and I contemplated whether or not to turn on my oven and bake another peachy dessert. I just can’t get into Fall baking yet, so I finally gave in and made this good old fashioned Peach Cobbler. I knew it would be such a yummy way to say goodbye to summer. I was right!
Although I like fresh peaches on their own, it’s always worth making some great desserts with them for my family. Sure, you can buy frozen peaches or even use your own frozen or canned peaches the rest of the year, but there is just something that brings back memories from my childhood when I’m in the kitchen on a hot summer afternoon with my hair thrown up, and feeling a warm breeze while slicing fresh fruit for a homemade dessert. There’s nothing more delicious and special!
This Fresh Peach Cobbler is really simple to make. Sliced fresh peaches are covered in a buttery crust sprinkled with sugar and baked until golden brown perfection.
It can be made quickly and allows you to bring a wonderful warm dessert to the table that everyone in your family will love. We never have any left over either! Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream over the warm top for a real special treat!
I love that cobblers have that rustic, not so perfect look to them. I love the golden parts around the edges, along with the fruit peeking through the buttery crust and the peachy goodness bubbling at the sides of the baking dish. I also enjoy everyone anxiously watching the oven timer as they smell those sweet peaches baking in the oven!
I hope that my children will remember the little things like this and long for the special desserts I made for them throughout their childhood as they grow, just like I will always treasure the sweet memories I had in the kitchen (and at the table) when I was their age.
If you’re still not feeling quite like Fall baking yet, grab some fresh peaches and enjoy this old fashioned dessert with your family this week!
