Paula Deen’s Peach Cobbler
Paula Deen’s Peach Cobbler is a recipe you just can’t do without! Well, dear friends, we are finally there. Today is my last of 40 peach recipes that I’ve posted in the past couple of months from baking peaches from our six peach trees out on our back property. Paula Deen’s Peach Cobbler–enough said. This cobbler is really fun.
You start with melted butter on the bottom of the baking dish. Then you make a crust mixture and pour it into the melted butter (without stirring). A peach pie filling is made on top of the stove and then poured over top of the topping (again, no stirring), followed by a sprinkling of cinnamon on top to finish it off. The cobbler bakes up to perfection. It’s great served with whipped whipping cream, non-dairy whipped topping or [news flash] ICE CREAM! Yay.
What can you say about a Paula Deen recipe? They’re all fantastic. The nice thing about this recipe is that it’s really easy. E-A-S-Y! Yet the payoff is quite good. Quite frankly, I don’t see why you couldn’t use fresh, canned or frozen peaches in this recipe. I think all would work quite well. Paula Deen’s Peach Cobbler has nice crunch from the topping and is filled with tender, juicy peaches making it a delectable dessert your family is sure to love. It’s also one of those magical cobblers that you assemble without stirring the ingredients. Everything just bakes up wonderfully, magically.
Baking up all those wonderful peach desserts in July and August was a hoot. Two solid weeks I baked from early morning ’til past dark making goodies, taking pictures, and packing up the goodies to send to friends. I could never be a full-time caterer. Being on my feet like that for hours on end is exhausting.
I also spent several days baking goodies before we left for our New York City meetings and vacation at the end of July. It was a lot of work. Most of the time I made three or four different desserts a day. While that doesn’t sound like all that much, some desserts were definitely more labor intensive than others. Taking pictures added a lot of time, and then packing up the goodies, and then washing dishes….and more dishes…..and more dishes! You get the idea.
I told you I was going to give you my personal favorites after I got everything wrapped up, so here goes. Even though my Double Crust Peach Cobbler has been my favorite cobbler for years (and I made it during this whirlwind round of baking), out of the nine different peach cobblers I made, my hats off to Magic Peach Cobbler. It was so different, had the most delicious crust I’ve ever eaten, and it was super easy, too.
Out of the three pies I made, hands down, my Mom’s Peach Pie recipe is, and always has been, the BEST! It is so delectable. I can never get enough of this pie. Out of the 12 cookie recipes I made, I loved the Peach Cobbler Cookies. They had a lovely texture and taste.
But I have to give the Peach Spice Cookies an honorable mention. Anything with frosting on top can’t get away without an award from me! Out of eight different bars or brownies, I have a tie. Both were so drool-worthy I can’t decide between the two. Peach Crumb Bars were sensational. I liked everything about this bar and could have consumed the whole pan in a heart beat!
Peach Bars with Almond Drizzle were also spectacular. I kept licking the icing as it drizzled down my fingers. Yum. Out of the six cakes and coffeecakes I made, the Butterscotch Peach Snack Cake was by far my favorite and I’m a cake lover extraordinaire! So it had to be pretty special for me to consider it above the other recipes. The butterscotch icing put this cake over the top and made the difference.
I made two rolls/muffins recipes and they both deserve an honorable mention. Peach Streusel Muffins, while a little more work than some muffin recipes were as scrumptious as can be. I packed off most of these to friends who had recently moved into a new home. Otherwise, I would have consumed the lot of them. 🙂
My fresh Peach Pie Crust Cinnamon Rolls were also mouthwatering. Instead of using jelly or jam in this recipe I made up my own filling with fresh peaches. They were terrific. So there you go. 40 fabulous peach dessert recipes, and my own personal favorites. I sure hope you’ll try a few of them….maybe more than a few.
So now we conclude the peach desserts with Paula Deen’s Peach Cobbler. It’s a great recipe to use up peaches, and if you enjoy peach desserts as much as I do, then you ought to give Paula’s recipe a try. I made a few changes since I rarely buy self-rising flour any more.
If you’re looking for a tasty peach cobbler recipe that’s quick and easy, this is a good recipe to use. Be sure to stock up on ice cream because your family is sure to come running when they smell the fragrant aroma of peaches baking in the oven. They, and you, will be smacking your lips in delight after one bite of this tasty dessert.
