Summer may be coming to an end in a matter of weeks, but the last of those amazingly delicious tree ripened peaches are still available at many of the farmers markets and stores. Here in Colorado we were able to pick up of a flat of organic Palisade peaches at our local farmers market.
After a long hike in the mountains, we came home and treated ourselves to a healthy dinner, and then Ric’s mother made this insanely good peach cobbler with the organic peaches. How could we resist? This recipe is simple and utterly divine.
- 10 ripe organic yellow peaches
- 1 cup, plus 2 tablespoons organic all-purpose flour
- 1½ cup sugar
- 7 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Pit the peaches and cut each one into 8 wedges.
- Place them in a large bowl and toss with the 2 tablespoons flour and ½ cup sugar.
- Butter a 9 x 13 inch baking dish (I used a couple of small cast iron pans which worked well).
- Place peaches in the baking dish, cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
- While the peaches are baking, cream together the butter and 1 cup sugar for 2 minutes.
- Add the eggs and beat until light and creamy, approximately 2 minutes.
- Add the1 cup flour, baking powder and salt, and mix until combined.
