Today is national peach cobbler day. The last thing that comes to mind when you think of peach cobbler is quick and easy. Be prepared to change your mind set.
Most definitions of cobbler say, “A fruit filling with a pastry or biscuit top”. This very simple peach cobbler uses preserved peaches and instant biscuit dough.
The Peach Filling
• Using a strainer, separate the peaches and juice.
• First adjust the liquid volume, one tube of biscuits will require about a quart of liquid. Additional water may be added.
• Next adjust the sugar (this will depend on the sweetness of the peaches). One the sweetness is right, the flavor needs to be adjusted.
• Spices round the flavor out and give the cobbler a little attitude.
• Ginger and allspice work great, gradually add the spices in small increments until they taste right. In Detroit, you can get your spices from spice miser.
• A pinch of salt may be added to increase depth of flavor.
• Heat juice mixture on the stove top and lightly thicken with corn starch. Set aside to cool
• Once cool stir the peaches back into the sauce.
When it comes to biscuits use your own preference, the cinnamon and sugar biscuits work well also.
• Preheat oven to the suggested temperature on the biscuit package.
• Butter or spray the baking dish.
• Arrange the biscuits in the pan with at least an inch between the biscuits.
• Pour the cooled liquid to cover the biscuit dough.
• Cover the baking dish with foil and place in the preheated oven.
• Check after twenty minutes, peel back the foil (being careful of steam) and check to see if the biscuits have risen through the filling.
• When the biscuits appear cooked, completely remove the foil and add raw pecans (tomorrow is national pecan day) then return to the oven to toast pecans and brown the biscuit tops.
• When biscuits are completely done, remove from oven and let cool.
It may seem like a lot of work, but it is far less than preparing a cobbler from scratch. This cobbler is best served warm with a cool vanilla ice cream.
