I feel it’s mauvais ton to post a recipe that I am not making from scratch. It’s like cheating, you know? It’s not in my background not is it in Love’s culture to use pre-made ingredients in cooking, especially when it’s a dessert.
This time, however, the dish was such a success with both of us that I have already cooked it 3 times. Oh, we did test it on a couple we know and they seem to be as hooked 🙂
1 cup water
1-2 Tb sp sugar / brown sugar / agave syrup / honey – any sweetener you prefer
1/2 t sp lemon juice
1/4 – 1/2 t sp nutmeg – optional
Cinnamon rolls dough
Optional: icing and 2 Tb sp of butter
Peel and cut peaches into however you feel like. I like inch size pieces.
Put them into a pan, cover with 1 cup of water, add 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice and let simmer on med-low heat for about 15 min. Or less. Peaches should become soft and the syrup should turn caramel color, but PLEASE don’t over-cook as the syrup will burn.
When the water begins to boil, add the sweetener. I add brown sugar, but feel free to use any of your choice and as much or as little as you like.
Add the nutmeg – again to your taste.
Cut each cinnamon roll into 4 or 6 pieces(depending on the rolls you are using). Spread half of those pieces on a baking pan. No need for any sprays, butter or parchment paper.
Pour the peaches with the syrup over the cinnamon rolls. Cover with the remaining pieces of rolls. Bake anywhere between 12 to 18 minutes (mine usually take 15) at 400 degrees – I strongly recommend follow the instructions on the packaging of your rolls. Mind not to over-bake!
When done, spread the icing over hot cobbler and put 1/4 inch cubes of butter all around.
We eat it in 2 settings – one at evening tea time, the rest is for breakfast.
Now, to be fair, I am not entirely sure this is a cobbler. From what I’ve heard, it is not. But we still think it’s delicious, I love making it as it takes 30 minutes from start to finish, easy to make and hard to screw up. In my opinion, that combination is hard to beat!
Let me know what you think and please do share yours if you make it!
