Freezer peach cobbler is a great way to enjoy sweet peach flavor past its season. Pull one of these easily-assembled treats from your freezer for Thanksgiving dinner or for a Christmas gathering, and your guests will be asking for the recipe. This one comes from a great freezer cookbook, Don’t Panic-Dinner’s in the Freezer.
Western Slope Peach Cobbler
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. almond extract
6-8 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced (enough to fill a 9 x 13 pan)
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 large egg
1 stick margarine
Mix 1 1/2 cups sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and almond extract. Add fresh fruit to mixture, place in freezer bag, and freeze.
When you are ready to prepare the cobbler, thaw the fruit filling and pour into greased 9 x 13 baking dish. For topping, mix sugar, flour, and baking powder. Beat egg and mix with flour/sugar mixture until crumbly. Sprinkle over fruit. Melt margarine and drizzle over top. Bake at 350 degress for 45-60 minutes, until light brown.
This is a simple and delicious cobbler, and a fun way to preserve peaches.
