“i just want to swim in this whipped cream”
inspired by the one and only state fair of texas, where i indulged in fried peaches and cream. that’s when it hit me to do this next recipe. and who doesn’t love cobbler of some sort? this recipe might even make my thanksgiving rotation! it’s so easy, super tasty and not everyone loves pie. even if you are not convinced that this should be included in your thanksgiving play list, it’s a must to make at least once. plus you all know that i’m the laziest of birds so this recipe is right up my alley because it really doesn’t get any easier/lazier than this.
2 – 29 oz. cans of sliced peaches in heavy syrup
8 T butter
1 & 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 & 1/2 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1 half pint of whipping cream (smallest carton size)
first things first, preheat to 350 degrees. while you’re waiting for the oven to heat up, in a medium sized bowl mix flour, sugar and milk. mix together well. if the mixture is a little clumpy it’s ok. in a large bowl pour the peaches in. once your oven is at 350 place the stick of butter in a 13 x 9” pan and place in the oven. once melted remove from the oven and pour in your batter in over the butter, not mixing them together. with a slotted spoon scoop your peaches on top. then pour the syrup over top of the peaches followed by a sprinkling of cinnamon. don’t worry, as the dough bakes it will rise to the top. cook for 45 minutes.
while you wait, in your mixer pour your half pint of whipping cream and add powdered sugar to taste, maybe a 1/4 cup? i just guessed. it’s more adventurous that way! blend together until it turns into whipped cream. remember our previous chats and keep an eye on this as you are not trying to make butter. so don’t blend for too long. once you’ve pulled the cobbler out of the oven top with whipped cream.
and that’s all she wrote. it’s so easy it’s stupid easy. everyone should make this at least once. it’s absolutely delicious and best served warm. please enjoy.
