Peach Walnut Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream
This phenominal cobbler is worth the effort – not only does it have a delicate flavor of cinnamon but its texture of the peaches combined with the walnuts is right on point.
As the days become shorter, peaches are in the market. I stood looking at them and thought, “What do I do with you?” ohyeahright… cobbler, the classic peach dessert. But, only peaches? Why not walnuts?
While there are additional steps in creating this dish when using fresh fruit, it pays off. If fresh peaches aren’t available or time is limited, use canned peaches (drained).
I began by blanching the peaches in boiling water, cooled, skinned, and cubed into small pieces.
My Fiesta Dinnerware Large Bistro Bowl will hold 6 cups of processes peaches.
I broke walnut halves into pieces, about 1 cup.
Bring to a quick boil the peaches, walnuts, sugar, cornstarch, and salt.
While the peaches cooled, I prepared the topping… flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, egg, milk, and chilled butter cubes.
After buttering the sides (to prevent the biscuit top from sticking), I spooned 1/2 cup of the peach mixture into my Fiesta Dinnerware Ramekins.
Typically, peaches in cobbler are prepared in thin slices, however, since I was using the ramekins I decided to make the fruit easier to spoon by making smaller bits.
A portion of the topping mix was shaped into a disc in order to place it on top of the peaches.
I think I might have sprinkled a bit of cinnamon on each serving before baking.
I adore how these turned out. And, I’m not sure which makes me smile more: the lovely cobblers or all the colors that look like a party! From the newest Slate and Sage to retired colors such as Rose, it simply doesn’t matter because they all look great together.
I loved sharing one with our neighbor before I took the group photographs.
When I topped each dessert with store-bought vanilla ice cream, I added a few bits of finely chopped walnuts and a sprinkle of cinnamon. No ice cream? Consider whipped cream.
These ramekins are fantastic for baking; I wouldn’t change a thing.
We’re in a great season of our life, my life partner and me.
And we get to enjoy our people and all they bring into our lives.
Sobriety makes everything possible.
So what does the cobbler look like on the spoon?
