Quick and Easy Peach Cobbler

 I certainly have a sweet tooth- and luckily so does my man.  Generally I want something terrible- chocolate covered chocolate topped with peanut butter and an extra side of peanut butter!  He on the other hand loves traditional desserts -pies and ice creams.  His favorite is an apple dumpling (read: NOT quick, Not easy.)

This week we happened to have a few summer peaches on hand.  So after dinner, when there is not chocolate on hand (because the only way is total avoidance)- I scurried through the kitchen to find some way to tolerate the slightly soft peaches before they had the chance to turn entirely AND to  satisfy my need for a late night post dinner snack!

A close second to a dumpling- is a cobbler.  I once picked up the most adorable mini ceramic loaf pans with dreams of making individual zucchini breads, or personal turkey meatloaves.  Neither nor ever came to fruition- but today they got to see the light of day (or a hot oven)!

Most of these things are usually setting around the average kitchen :

Preheat Oven @ 450 degrees.

  • 1 peach (we had a half each)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • pinch 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 (plus) tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon flour (2 full if no flax)

Slice your peaches thin- you wont bake them long and you dont want them to be cold in the centers!



First mix the dry ingredients, then press the cold butter into the dry mixer until it is all wet and begins to clump. Leave no dry product!



Top your peaches!



Bake until you are happy with the color on top (this was about 12 minutes for my oven).



I go without milk -but Mikey, he likes it!
