Thread: Peach Cobbler (Cooking Light)

  1. #1


    This Peach Cobbler recipe was featured in Cooking Light’s Back to the Best series. I’m not sure which month, and I haven’t tried it, but I typed it to post on the 50+ board, so I figured I'd post it here, too. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    2 c. all-purpose flour
    1 T granulated sugar
    t. salt
    6 T chilled butter, cut into 6 pieces
    6 T ice water
    Cooking Spray
    6 c. sliced peeled peaches (about 3.75 lb.)
    c. packed brown sugar, divided
    2 T all-purpose flour
    1 T vanilla extract
    1 t ground cinnamon
    c. slivered almonds
    1 large egg
    1 t. water
    1 T granulated sugar

    1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
    2. Place 2c. flour, sugar and salt in a food processor; pulse 2 or 3 times. Add butter pieces; pulse 10 times or until the mixture resembles coarse meal. With processor on, slowly add ice water through the food chute, processing just until combined (do not form a ball).
    3. Gently press dough into a 4” circle. Slightly overlap 2 lengths of plastic wrap on a slightly damp surface. Place dough on plastic wrap; cover with 2 additional lengths of overlapping plastic wrap. Roll dough, still covered, into a 15” x 13” rectangle. Place in freezer 5 minutes or until plastic wrap can be easily removed, remove top sheets. Fit dough, uncovered side down, into a 2-quart baking dish coated with cooking spray, allowing dough to extend over edges; remove remaining plastic wrap.
    4. Combine peaches, c. brown sugar, 2 T flour, vanilla, and cinnamon in a large bowl, toss gently. Spoon into prepared dish, fold edges of dough over peach mixture. Sprinkle 11/4 c. brown sugar over mixture; sprinkle with almonds.
    5. Combine egg and water in a small bowl. Brush egg mixture over dough, sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake at 375 F for 45 minutes or until filling is bubbly and crust is lightly browned. Let stand 30 minutes before serving.

    This is really delicious! Even my DH who is not crazy about "light" stuff enjoyed it. I did sub splenda for most of the sugar and light stick margarine for the butter.

    So what did you figure your points at modifying this recipe? Probably will try tonight - DW went to see folks in Napa, so I am going to cook up some desserts tonight!

    We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors....but they all exist very nicely in the same box.
