Let's face it, most of us will never compare to Martha. She is a domestic goddess. And she actually gets paid to be crafty. I want to be Martha. But I am still learning the basics. I made my first pot roast this week. I felt pretty good about that. It was very tasty and Erik seemed impressed. It was the first time I used my Crock-pot. HA! Man, I like Crock-pot cooking. It is so easy and the flavor is so good after sitting around and roasting all day! I wish I would have tried out this slow cooker sooner. Now that I tried out a new entree this week, I decided I should try out a fun dessert. I have some fresh peaches from a local farm that I need to use so I looked up cobbler recipes. I found an amazing recipe from Paula Deen for a dutch oven peach cobbler. Only problem, I don't have a dutch oven. Last year, I shopped around for. I love Le Creuset (the Caribbean colored cookware is my favorite!) and I really wanted to get some Le Creuset cookware but decided to wait until I would use it more.
I found one on sale. Isn't it pretty?!
Do any of you all have a dutch oven? If so, do you use it often? Maybe if I show this recipe to my hubby, it will motivate him to buy me a dutch oven! hehe Although, when I told him I was researching dutch ovens, he thought it was some form of passing gas... lovely!
Here is the recipe I found. I am hungry thinking about it!
Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler
Recipe courtesy Paula Deen
2 (16-ounce) cans sliced peaches in heavy or light syrup, or in fruit juice, your choice
1 pint fresh blueberries, optional
1/2 cup baking mix (recommended: Bisquick)
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/4 cups baking mix (recommended: Bisquick)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
Cinnamon sugar (1/4 cup sugar combined with 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon; store in an empty spice shaker jar; shake well before each use)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray a Dutch oven with vegetable oil cooking spray
Drain 1 can of the peaches. Combine both cans of peaches, including the juice from the undrained can, the blueberries, if using, the baking mix, sugar, and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Place this mixture into the Dutch oven.
To make the topping: Combine the biscuit mix, sugar, butter, and milk in a resealable plastic bag. Drop bits of dough, using your fingers, on top of the peaches. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Place the Dutch oven into the preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes, until the top is golden brown and crusty.
