A few years ago, my father found a recipe on Food Network for Peach Cobbler that he swore by. I'm not sure which chef's recipe he chose but he and my mom loved it & loved it so much that he made it and brought to every family gathering for the next few summers thereafter. I, on the other hand, wasnt too fond of the hard crust that laid on top of the scrumptious fruit underneath.
This year..... it's my turn! Thanks to Melissa Murphy, there's a recipe (on pgs. 154-155) for Bear's Peach Cobbler in her cookbook. And thanks to Andrea of Nummy Kitchen for picking it this weekend. The complete recipe can be found on Andrea's blog. Also, be sure to check out how the other SMS Bakers made out with this one.
Immediately after my first read of the recipe, i was petrified --- oh, NO! --- another recipe that involved DOUGH! Something about working with dough just gives me the eebie jeebies --- but i have to overcome this and somehow get use to making dough because its not always about cakes & cupcakes & cookies --- there are other yummy treats to be made!
To my surprise, the cobbler topping (aka dough) came together nicely. I was psyched! Peeling & slicing the peaches was sorta tedious.
The recipe said to cut the dough into rounds and place them neatly on top of the peaches when you're ready to bake. I opted NOT to do that. I didnt want to mess with the dough anymore than I had to so i left it alone and just placed the whole thing in one piece on top of the peaches.
A nice golden brown crust after only one hour!
I couldnt find my casserole dish so I just used my 8x8x2 pyrex.
I love to see what the side of my dish looks like.
THE VERDICT: yummmmmmmmmmmmm!!! This is a winner! This recipe is really easy to put together. I liked this one a lot and so did my parents. I gave my dad the recipe so he can use it from now on.
