We went ot a BBQ at our neighbor’s house this afternoon.  A fun time with lots of food and drink.  I got to bring dessert!

For the 4th, I wanted something slightly traditional, but with a bit of a twist.  Enter Tim’s Peach Cobbler!

I marinated the peaches overnight in Cointreau…  Into the dish they went with a bit of sugar, cinnamon, corn starch, and allspice.

For the topping I took a scone recipe and twisted the concept a bit.  I flattened it out, brushed with melted butter and then sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon.  I rolled it up cinnamon-roll-style, cut, and put on top.  Into the oven for about 20 minutes and dessert was served!

It was yummy!

Here’s the scone recipe I used for the topping:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter
  • 1 cup whipping cream

Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in large bowl. Add butter; rub in with fingertips until mixture resembles fine meal. Gradually add 1 cup cream, mixing until dough comes together. Pat to 1/2-inch thick rectangle.

Spread with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.  Roll, slice, and place on fruit.

Bake at 400° about 20 minutes or until fully cooked.

Simplicity-and sooooooo good!
