Peach Cobbler

A neighbor brought in too many peaches! Most of them were about to go bad soon so I had to find some way to eat up all those peaches without making my stomach explode. My immediate thoughts went to a peach cobbler. A recipe inspired by my favorite camping comfort food. Being that it is summer, which is typically when I go camping, I thought it would be most appropriate to make this delectable dessert.

While I am no big fan of sweets, do love peaches, especially when they are as juicy and ripe as these were so in effect I substitute less sugar in general throughout my recipe. I like to use stevia and honey as they are both dramatically much more sweeter than sugar is and I didn’t have to put that much in. Also another note, yes it’s only 1 tbsp. of butter. You can put more if you like but I happen to like more peach than cobbler. which is another thing, I originally used about 3/4 cups of oats but I found that the peach to oat ratio was way off. The oats completely took over while the peaches just shriveled and shrank. So either use more peaches or less oats.

I found that cut a cross into the skin of the peaches and letting them sit in hot water for a few minutes then bathing them in old water was a very quick and easy way to remove the skins. I figured if it works with tomatoes, why not peaches. I swear mixing the filling together took too much self control. It smelled heavenly!

I definitely recommend making this recipe if you can, I had quite a few fans after giving this goody out to a couple friends so maybe the next time you have your friends over, a little coaxing with some peach cobbler might land you any much needed favors ;).
