Southern Nectarine Cobbler

September 12, 2019Teresa

I have the most spectacular dessert for you today! Southern Nectarine Cobbler. Wow this dessert was so good I had all of our company drooling over it! Instead of peaches, this cobbler uses nectarines. It has a wonderful topping covered with cinnamon sugar. Yes, it was fantastic with ice cream and a little caramel sauce drizzled over top. 🙂

Last Friday I received a box of nectarines and peaches from the Washington State Fruit Commission. The fruit was delightful, but the nectarines were absolutely marvelous. Sweet, juicy, wonderful.

Full disclosure here: I have NEVER made anything with nectarines before. NEVER! I’ve eaten nectarines raw, but I’ve never cooked with them. I didn’t realize what I’d been missing out on! Nectarines are sensational cooked up in pie or cobbler. They taste like peaches but the skin on the fruit is thinner. It’s almost like the skin on a plum.

I got the box about 1 or 2 pm last week and decided to throw together a cobbler for dinner that night with our Friday night Bible study group. I think about 15 people tried the cobbler. Without exception, all of our group loved it. I kept asking everyone, “What did you think of it?” It was a winner with young and old alike. We served it with ice cream, although I ate my portion plain.

The next time you find nectarines in the store, you’ve got to make up this amazing Southern Nectarine Cobbler. I’m sure you’re family will drool over it just like ours did.
