Pecan-peach cobbler recipe that takes the classic dish to another delicious level
This delicious mix of two of the most beloved ingredients in Southern cuisine, peaches, and pecans, is perfect to share a sweet time with family and friends.
This cobbler has made people happy for centuries, but this recipe has a modern twist that will take a classic dish to a whole new level of deliciousness. We recommend serving it as it comes out of the oven and bubbling.
12 to 15 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
3 1/4 cups sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2/3 cup butter
2 packages refrigerated pie crusts
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
vanilla ice cream
1. Combine the peaches, sugar, flour, and nutmeg in a Dutch oven, and let stand 10 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. Bring the peach mixture to a boil; reduce heat to low, and simmer 10 minutes or until tender.
2. Remove from heat; add vanilla and butter and stir until the butter melts.
3. Unfold the 2 piecrusts. Sprinkle 1/4 cup pecans and 2 tablespoons sugar evenly over 1 pie crust; top with the other pie crust. Roll to a 12-inch circle, gently pressing pecans into the pastry.
4. Cut into 1 1/2-inch strips. Repeat with the remaining pie crusts, pecans, and sugar.
5. Add half of the peach mixture into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish.
6. Arrange half of the pastry strips in a lattice design on the top of the peach mixture.
7. Bake at 475° for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Add the remaining peach mixture over the baked pastry. Top with the remaining pastry strips in a lattice design. Bake 15 to 18 more minutes. Serve warm or cold with vanilla ice cream.
Note: To make ahead, let baked cobbler cool; cover and freeze up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator over-night. Uncover, and reheat in the oven at 250° for 45 minutes.
Enjoy this sweet goodness!
