Peach Cobbler

I set out to make peach cobbler for father’s day.  I wanted to make it gluten-free for my girlfriend and her wheat allergy.    I did some research online and found this recipe from King Arthur Flour.  However being on a strict budget, I picked up some Aldi brand baking mix and not finding peaches that were very good in the produce section I substituted in Aldi’s frozen peaches.

I was really struck by how insanely easy cobbler is compared with pie.   There’s
none of the hassle of making sure the top and bottom crust end up just how you like them.  None of the touchiness of worrying about  the humidity as crust stick to things.   Just mix, pour and bake.    And yet it’s really delicious.

I’d definitely make this 2014-06-15 11.03.36again.  It was easy, fairly inexpensive and delicious.   I didn’t even really notice that it was gluten-free and didn’t get to eat it warm out of the oven, or have ice cream to top it with and it was still first rate.

 

I might opt for some crumble topping in the future but this was an auspicious beginning in cobblers.  Plus
