Don't you just hate it when you have to share? Though, I do love sharing. Sometimes there are moments when you want to keep something to yourself. This was one of them. A nice little personal peach cobbler. One I can have all to myself.
I had some peaches that I wanted to baked something with. But it wasn't enough to make a full pie or a tart of some kind. I didn't feel like taking a lot of effort into making some kind of dough. I decided on make then into mini sized desserts. I remembered I had saved the small tart foil cups from some fruit tarts I made a while back. I knew I'd find another use for them. Woohoo...
I also used two graham cracker mini tart rounds I had in the pantry. Those are optional This one is easy to make. Peeled the kinds from peaches and sliced them up. Tossed a bit of cinnamon in them to bump up the flavor level. Then placed them in mini tart cups and baked until the cobbler topping was nice and browned.
Look at that peachy goodness wanting to pop out from under the cobbler topping. It's saying: "eat me."
Makes 4 mini cobblers
Mini Peach Cobbler
2 Ripe peaches
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon (plus extra)
3 Tbsp butter
2 c flour
1/4 tsp salt
4 small ramekins or foil bowls.
Preheat oven to 350˚F
Poach the peaches in some boiling water for 60 seconds. Let the peaches cool, then carefully peel off the skins and cut into slices.
While the peaches cool, mix together the butter, flour, egg, and salt until a doughy crumb consistency. Set aside.
Add the cinnamon to the peaches and toss together. Divide the peach slices among the 4 ramekins. Then top with the flour mixture. Sprinkle with some extra cinnamon on top.
Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cobbler topping is golden brown.
