There is something about a fresh peach cobbler that screams summer is here! We have a wonderful ranch in our town, The Smith Ranch, that town-folk and out of town-folk flock to during peach harvest time. You have to get to the fruit stand early because these peaches go fast. Seriously fast. They are THAT good!
The peaches are really the very best that I have ever had. Sweet, tender, juicy and don't watch me eat one because it ain't a purdy site watching the peach juice roll down my arms and chin. My audience is usually the scotties and all they care about is if a morsel may happen to fall down in their direction.
Because we are now a Gluten-Free household, I am learning to adapt to baking and cooking for our new diet. I miss Gluten and may I just say that being GF really sucks big time! However, having Celiac Disease isn't fun and sacrifices have to be made in order to be healthy. (But oh how I miss my chocolate chip cookies!)
I used GF Bisquick for the topping. (This box was nearly $7.00 - sticker shock! - and there is about 3 cups of mix to use.)
For the topping I used 2 cups of Bisquick, cut in one cube (1/2 cup) of cold butter, added 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup milk (or enough to make the dough hold together), 1 beaten egg and 1 tsp vanilla.
For the peaches, I added 1/2 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons of corn starch. Mix it up and place the peaches in a glass pan. Spread the Bisquick topping over the peaches and bake at 375 for 45 minutes, or until the topping is a golden color.
Delicious! Pardon me..... I must go and pig out!!!! A cup of hot French Roast and hot peach cobbler...life is good...even Gluten Free!
I had fun using PicMonkey for this post. PM can be a huge time vacuum, like Pinterest!!!
