Peach Cobbla'

As I mentioned before, I have been cooking up a storm this summer.  With the bounty of the summer's harvest at our finger tips, how could you not enjoy it?!  My time in the kitchen has been an attempt to showcase the summer super stars, specifically tomatoes and peaches.

As I mentioned here, Luci and I set out a few weeks ago to find the perfect Peach Cobbler recipe.  I am convinced peach cobbler is one of the simplest, yet most impressive desserts!  We've done a few different recipes-  this one from Cooking Light, and most recently, this one pictured below from the Lee's Brothers for their Cornmeal-Drop Biscuit Peach Cobbler. . . 

I can't say which one I am most partial too, because they are both fantastic and very different!  I will saw the Cooking Light one is more of your 'traditional' cobbler.  The Lee's bros below mixes things up a bit with the cornmeal.  You must try one of them; they are both just wonderful desserts that will have everyone coming back for one more bite!

(Click the link above for the recipe; I was going to post it but the ingredient's list is too much to type right now)

Some photo fun of my recreation. . 

Letting my peaches soak in some lemon juice and brown sugar while I prepared the dry ingredients . .

I'm not crazy about peach skins when I eat peaches raw or in cereal or yogurt, but in this cobbler, I think you can go either way. I left them on for convenience sake, and I'm under the impression that it did not make a difference at all.

The finished product, all golden brown and delicious!

Be sure to keep the dough patchy so the fruity syrup bubbles through.  I think it makes for quite an effortless presentation as well!

In the photos above, with my not so fabulous camera, I halved the recipe.  Here's a picture from someone's fancy camera.  To serve with a little vanilla ice cream or whip cream, I'd say you have a very simple, yet very impressive dessert!!  Mmmmmmm!!
