I love stone fruit, it always makes me think of my Pop. When I was little he used to pick fruit at local orchards and he would take me with him all the time, I must have eaten my weight in nectarines every week, I loved them! I still love stone fruit, nectarines, peaches, apricots, plums they are all amazing! When I was shopping on the weekend I found these huge peaches that smelt incredible! As soon as I saw them I thought of peach cobbler.
Peach cobbler is such a comforting dessert, and suprisingly easy to make. You can make this and have it on the table in just over an hour. The ingredients are very simple, I use brown sugar to add a caramel note, and for this one I added bourbon into the peaches to bring an extra warmth.
The top ends up wonderfully crunchy and caramelised. Some peaches remain on top and some sink down. This is one of my favourite desserts and is perfect served with cream or vanilla ice cream.
I really hope you give this a shot, it has such beautiful flavour I am sure you will love it! And it makes enough to easily serve 8 people, perfect for sharing!
