Easy Peach Cobbler



In the winter, I find myself longing for warm, fruit desserts. After Christmas, I need something lighter than creme brûlée or chocolate tort. I want something fruity and warming and easy to make.

Happily, I preserve a lot of fruit in the summer so that I may enjoy it in the winter. I have canned peaches in syrup which are easily turned into a delicious and embarrassingly easy dessert to make. Melt the butter, pour in the batter, then tip in the peaches with their sugary jucies. If you desire crunch, toss in some nuts. Bake and voila, delicious cobbler.

This dessert only requires a pan, a bowl and a whisk. You can make it for unexpected company in a trice or just for yourself after a long day. If you want to make it truly decadent, add a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream. Yum!

Ingredients:
16 ounces of sliced peaches in syrup (storebought or homemade)
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/8 cup milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped pecans


Method:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Pour the melted butter into a 9 by 9 inch pan.

Meanwhile, mix together the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, milk and cinnamon into a smooth batter. Pour and spread the batter on top of the melted butter. Pour the can of peaches with juices on top of the batter, then sprinkled over the pecans.


Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until bubbling and brown. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving up. Enjoy!

Raspberry Pomegranate Jam

Tis the season to be making homemade gifts! Pomegranates are in season and their juice is a festive deep ruby red color. I knew I had to make them into a jam to give away. Straight pomegranate flavor is a little tart for me; I added raspberries for the texture of their seeds and their sweetness. This is a very simple recipe to make and will yield 6 to 7 8 ounces jars of jam or 12 to 14 4 ounce jars, if you like to give away sample sizes during the holidays. Enjoy! Ingredients: 3 1/2 cups pomegranate juice 1 cup mashed raspberries 7 cups sugar 1 tablespoon butter 1 1/75 ounce package Sure Jell Method: Sterilize your jars and lids. Set aside. In a heavy bottomed large stock pot, add the pomegranate juice, raspberries and butter. Mix well. Add in the sugar. Bring to a full rolling boil then stir in the Sure Jell. Allow to boil hard for 1 minutes. Remove from the heat and skim off any foam. Ladle into the sterile jars, twist on the lids and pr

Copycat Star Crunch

I really love Little Debbie snacks but I very rarely have them. I don’t like eating things that are full of unpronounceable ingredients and preservatives. Plus, I greatly prefer to make things myself. My favorites have to be Oatmeal Creme Pies and Star Crunch. I am still looking for a perfect Oatmeal Creme Pie copycat recipe, but this recipe for Star Crunch is absolutely perfect. These cookies are a fantastic combination of caramel, chocolate, and crunchy crisped rice cereal. They keep in a sealed container for a week, or in the fridge for a month. Next time you crave  Little Debbie Star Crunch, try your hand at making your own! Ingredients: Recipe Credit: Adapted from Stella Parks 1/2 cup water 1 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/4 cup heavy cream 1 tablespoon vanilla paste 3 ounces of milk chocolate chips (use a chocolate for baking; some versions of “eating” chocolate contain too much fat. When your combine this chocolate and the caramel together, the

Peek-a-boo Squares

My grandma, Mimi, taught me this recipe. I used to make this with her and my mother as a child. It is my very favorite dessert. It is incredibly easy to make, and even easier to eat. My favorite part of making this as a child was dusting every bar generously with snowy white powdered sugar.  My favorite version of this dessert uses canned blueberry pie filling; I vastly prefer Libby brand over the store brand. You can make blueberry pie filling from scratch with sugar, cornstarch, bleberries, etc. but using the canned stuff is easy in a pinch and is much for nostalgic for me. Plus, I don’t notice a vast improvement over my homemade blueberry pie filling and the Libby brand; it just takes me longer to put this dessert together.  I have been known to whip up a pan of these Friday night and have them disappear by Saturday afternoon. Be warned, these things are addictive! Ingredients: 3 cups of all-purpose flour 2 cups of granulated sugar 4 eggs 2 sticks of
