Out of the four season, summer was always the one that got mentioned last in the list of ones I love. I start with fall and spring then mention winter and casually blow off summer as if it was some awful time every year in my life.
I’ve mentioned before that I don’t do heat. Yet, as I’ve become more invested in the food I eat, summer has been gaining ground on the other seasons as my favorite.
There is nothing better than fruit freshly picked. I’ve heard it said before but I find it completely true: fruit is mother natures candy.So grab some peaches, whip together this cobbler, throw bit of vanilla ice cream on the hot cobbler, and enjoy a taste of summer. I know I did!
- 8 ripe peaches
- ¼ cup sucanat
- 2 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour
- 1½ cup whole wheat pastry flour
- ¼ cup sucanat
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup butter
- ½-3/4 cup milk
- Preheat oven to 350˚.
- Peel and cube peaches into ½”-1″ pieces, place in a bowl and toss with sucanat and flour, set aside.
- In a food processor, combine dry ingredients and pulse a few times. Cut butter into smaller chunks and toss into dry mixture, pulsing until butter is in small pea-size pieces. Finally, add ½ cup of milk and pulse until mixture pulls together, adding 1 tablespoon of milk extra as needed until dough forms.
- Divide peaches into 4-4″ ramekins and top each with a few spoonfuls of the dough mixture. Place on a cookie tray and bake until tops are set and the filling is bubbling- 30-35 minutes.
- Serve warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
