I fresh froze my peaches (first time-yay!) and gave most away. I have one quart bag stuffed full and would like to make a peach cobbler for Christmas...anyone have a fairly simple, but good recipe? I've never made cobbler...
We do the del monte cans, actually the gallon size. Its really amazing to pour all of the recipe in at once and then have the flour rising as it cooks. I would imagine the peaches would need to cook first to soften them if they were fresh. Marvin
I agree linda, crisp is my favorite. We keep a mix of flour, butter, brown sugar, chopped pecans, and spices in the freezer. When we want a crisp for desert we fill custard cups with frozen fruit (and sometimes a little sugar) and top with the crisp mix. Bake it in the toaster oven while we're eating and it's very easy and yummy. I had a leftover cup of cherry crisp for lunch today.
It's super easy if you have a food processor. Use the large hole shredder to shred frozen butter (this works great for any pastry recipe) then switch to the regular blade and add everything else. It only takes about two minutes to make a big batch. If you get it back in the freezer right away the butter won't melt and make everything stick together. Then it's easy to pour out as much as you need.
I use apples, berries, cherries, peaches; whatever I have on hand, sometimes mixed together. Canned fruit works too. You can use quick cooking oats but regular rolled oats will be too tough, they need to cook with more liquid.
Rhubarb/Strawberry, fill a 9x12" glass baking dish toss with 1/2 c sugar. Make crumble with 1 C flour 1 c instant oats, 1/2 c chopped blanched almonds, 1 stick melted butter 1/2 c Sugar- can be light brown, cinnamon for flavor.
top fruit with the crumble and bake for 1 hr. at 350 degrees. Can be made with peaches and other berries.Plums and other berries. Apples and raisins, etc.
I did a strawberry rhubarb crumble for work the other day--I used pecans in the topping since I had them on hand. I tossed the berries and rhubarb with some sugar, cornstarch, vanilla and cinnamon. Served with vanilla ice cream--was a hit.
I've also just used frozen berry mixes in individual ramekins with the crumble topping on it too. Very easy to make only the portions you need that way---leftover desserts cause way too much trouble left in my home:lol:
