Birthday Peach Cobbler


In Japan, a momo is a little peach. My husband, Mo, is a big peach, sweet and mellow and, well yes, he has a big, loving, juicy personality!

Here in Colorado we have an amazing peach season which usually goes right into October. Some of the best peaches are from the western slope of the Rockies.  For Mo’s birthday, he got Colorado Peach Cobbler.

Momo’s Peach Cobbler

For the fruit
6 cups sliced peaches
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 Tbsp flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice

For the cobbler topping
3 cups flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 stick of butter cut into small pieces
1 cup heavy ceam
2/3 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Slice the fruit and place into a large bowl. Sprinkle the flour and cornstarch over the fruit. Add the sugar and lemon juice.  Mix to distribute evenly. Place peach mixture into your baking dish (or dishes).

In a bowl of a food processor, add the dry ingredients and pulse.  Add the butter pieces and pulse 3 times. Then with the machine running, add the heavy cream and buttermilk. The dough should come together into one big ball. Flatten the dough into small squares and place on top of the fruit.

Don’t worry that it seems flat or doesn’t cover the fruit entirely, this dough rises and spreads well. Bake for 25 minutes.  The fruit will be bubbling and the cobbler dough cooked through.  Let the cobbler rest for a few minutes before serving.
