Peach and Nectarine Cobbler

For about 3 weeks now, every time I see my parents, my dad mentions me making him peach cobbler. I figured that after 3 weeks of persistent peach buying and mentioning it to me, I should probably bake him a peach cobbler. Since I had tons of peaches and nectarines, I decided to mix them together into a cobbler.

Peaches are a softer stone fruit, which means they break down easier when they bake. Nectarines are harder in their structure and withstand baking a little bit better. When you mix them together, they taste tangy, and have a mix in texture from the soft peaches to the denser nectarines.

In the summer months theres nothing more satisfying than a tangy summer fruit cobbler!

Let's start baking!

Peach and Nectarine Cobbler: Preheat the oven to 350° 

Ingredients:

- 7 sliced and peeled peaches and or nectarines or both!

- 1/3 cup of brown sugar

- 1/3 cup of all purpose flour

- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

- juice from 2 lemons

Topping:

- 1 cup of all purpose flour

- 1/3 cup of rolled oats

- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

- 1/3 cup of brown sugar

- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

- 1/3 stick of melted butter

Steps:

1. Peel and slice the peaches and nectarines into 1/3" slices and set in a bowl

2. Add into the bowl with the slices of fruit, the brown sugar, cinnamon and the lemon juice and mix until the sugar dissolves

3. Next, stir into the peaches and nectarines, the flour and make sure there are no chunks of flour

4. Pour the mixture with the fruit into a 4 inch deep ramekin and set aside

5. In the same bowl you mixed the peaches in (it has the fruit flavor that transfers over into the crumble!) pour the melted butter into the bowl and mix the flour into the butter

6. Stir in the cinnamon, the vanilla extract and the sugar

7. Lastly, using a fork or your hands, add the oats to the flour mixture and crumble it together with your fingers

8. Over the top of the nectarine and peach filling, crumble the topping over the fruit evenly. It should be about 1/2" to 1" thick of crumble

9. Bake the cobbler for 30 minutes in the oven until the crumble is golden brown

10. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream of plain!
