Welcome to the weekend! This peach cobbler is a very easy and tasty dessert you can make for your Saturday supper, Sunday lunch or half-time of your favorite college football game. College football seems to rule my life beginning in September and going pretty much until Thanksgiving. Although not a die-hard fan myself, my family lives and breathes Notre Dame football. As alumni, my husband and son go to every game and more often than not, my daughter is there too. I stay home with the dog and watch the game on TV from my chair!
When my son was a student I went to an occasional game so I could see him. I checked out his dorm room (which was the size of a postage stamp) and we would take him to dinner. Since we got our little dog, and my son has joined a team of champion tailgaters, it makes more sense for me to just stay home!
So…back to the peach cobbler. I seriously thought about not peeling the peaches but at the last minute decided to go ahead and peel them. I wasn’t sure how the skin would cook up and didn’t want to ruin the dish. The dough went together like a breeze. I bought the heavy cream but I think if you wanted to use milk it would be perfectly fine. The next time I make this I’m going to try the milk.I trimmed off the edges of the crust and tucked them under all around the pan. I used a few of the trimmings to cut out some little flowers for the top of the crust. This is one of those recipes you can use with any kind of fruit. Apples and cherries would be especially wonderful.
I hope you rock your weekend…I hope your weather is perfect…and I hope your team wins. Unless you are a Michigan fan and then I really hope your team loses!
