Easy Peach Cobbler – Guest Post

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 9, 2009

Today’s guest post comes from Rhoda at Southern Hospitality! I love looking through her site at all the fabulous photos and decor ideas. Plus, I came across this fabulous Spinach Lentil Stew recipe that I can’t wait to try…come autumn!

Summer is here and those fresh peaches are readily available for the picking, so now is a good time for an easy and delicious fresh peach cobbler, with the addition of blueberries for some extra appeal, but those are optional too.  This is one easy recipe that your family will enjoy and it’s pretty enough to take to a summer gathering.  Eaten warm out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream, your guests will be clamoring for more.  
 
Easy Peach Cobbler
 
6 large peaches and about a cup of blueberries (optional). Peel and slice peaches
1 Pillsbury pie crust in a pie baking dish, thawed
4-6 slices of white bread (I used wheat & it was just fine) with crust trimmed off & cut into 1” strips
1 stick of melted butter
1 egg
1 cup sugar
2 TBL regular flour


 
Put pie crust in pie pan when thawed and arrange.
Place sliced fruit into the pie shell.
Melt butter in bowl, add egg, sugar, and flour. Mix until blended (by hand). 
Place strips of bread over top of fruit (like lattice) and pour butter mixture over the top.
Bake in 350* oven for about 35 mins. until golden brown.
 
Enjoy with vanilla ice cream.

I have never heard of using bread strips to make a lattice-type topping, but it’s so pretty and simple and how can anything with peaches go wrong? I’m excited to try this. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. What a great find!!! Deb

I love your site, it is actually one of the ones that inspired me to start my blog, Whats a Mom to do. I posted the link to this recipe last night when I was using up the overripe fruit in my house. I added strawberries to the peaches and blueberries and it was awesome. Thanks for your great info.

As a new wife/homemaker on a one income budget, this website has become a LIFESAVER for me!! I experiment with cooking, but not baking!! Until I came across the cobbler recipe—WOW! I am so excited! It was the easiest thing I could make for my husband! He is allergic to most fruits, so apples are about the only thing we can use. I used one can of apple pie filling and made the cobbler in a stoneware baking dish. It turned out crunchyand flaky on the crust and yummy, moist, gooey, and delicious on the inside! I also love this website because my questions are always answered as soon as I send an email. Thanks for taking a moment to listen to me “gush” for a while!! I can’t wait to try more exciting recipes!
