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)
