I am happy to return to Sweet Melissa Sundays. And what a great dessert to return to. This week's recipe of Bear's Peach Cobbler was chosen by Andrea of Nummy Kitchen, and judging by her posts, her kitchen sure looks nummy. You can get the recipe for this cobbler here. This was my first time making a peach cobbler, so I was excited.
As it turned out, I was invited to a lovely brunch today, so I got up early and made the cobbler to bring along. While there was no shortage of delicious food at the brunch, the cobbler was tested and got great reviews. I couldn't taste it because I didn't have lactose free products at home. The recipe was simple enough, although blanching and then peeling those peaches took FOREVER. Man, that felt like a lot of work. I see that Andrea skipped the peeling and I think I will too next time!
The dough was easy to make and I got to use my pastry blender that I bought for Melissa's pie dough recipe, so that was cool. I forgot to add the lemon zest to the dough (actually I subbed lime for lemons because that is what I had), so I rubbed the lemon zest with the sugar that you are supposed to sprinkle on top of the biscuits before baking. I also added a dash of nutmeg because I really like that spice and therefore, think everyone else should too! People definitely noticed the spice and the lime flavors and liked it. I hope to try this later this summer lactose free so I can try it. Great recipe, thanks Andrea.
