Individual peach cobblers
I saw this recipe posted on Facebook yesterday, and I thought, why not?
Warning: it didn't turn out so well.
I should have known better than to follow a recipe that called for canned peaches (and SO MUCH butter; I used half the amount the recipe called for and it was still way, way, too much). Fortunately, the end result was at least moderately tasty, if not pretty.
So, notes: don't use canned peaches. Use fresh. (2-3 large, peeled, chopped). Half a teaspoon or so of melted butter in each tin will be plenty. I'm not sure if it was all the butter or the peach juice or a combination, but my cobblers overflowed the muffin tins (put a cookie sheet underneath, just in case) and you may need to cook for 10-15 minutes longer than the recipe calls for. I had to cook for close to 30 minutes before the dough was cooked all the way through.
And I couldn't make the individual cobblers look pretty; eventually I just scraped everything out and lumped it together in a bowl. For all that, you might as well just make one big peach cobbler.
Still, it was a cute idea.
From tablespoon.com, original recipe reprinted below:
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 dash salt
3/4 cup milk
1 stick melted butter
2 cans diced peaches
cinnamon, to taste
brown sugar, to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put 1 teaspoon of melted butter into each regular-sized muffin tin. Combine the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and milk by hand. Put 2 tablespoons of batter into each regular-sized muffin tin on top of the melted butter. Next, put 1 tablespoon diced peaches on top of the batter in each tin. Sprinkle with brown sugar and then cinnamon. Bake the regular-sized muffin tins for 12 minutes. Let them cool almost completely before taking the mini peach cobblers out of the pan.
