Mini Peach Cobblers

When you have fresh sweet peaches available, be sure to make these little peach cobblers.

These mini peach cobblers are a breeze to make too! Just mix the peaches with some brown sugar, nutmeg, and lemon zest, and divide them among 8 mini ramekins. Top them with an easy to make biscuit dough, and bake!

You can even prep the biscuit dough in advance and keep it in the refrigerator for up to three days, making these cobblers even easier to make.

If you don't have mini ramekins, you can bake them in four 4-inch ramekins. The baking time should be about the same.

Peeling Peaches:


An easy way to peel peaches is to cut a small X in the peel at the bottom of the fruit and then plunge them into boiling water for one minute. Next put them in a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking. 

The skin just slides right off. You can see a photo of a peeled peach in my post about peach shortcakes


Finding good peaches:


It's sometimes so hard to find good peaches at the supermarket. It seems like they sometimes go from rock hard to mealy with nothing in between. I have found one grocery store that sells only local produce, and their peaches are always juicy and sweet after a couple of days on the counter.

You can usually find great peaches at farmers markets, but we only have one once a week.

Can I substitute other fruit?


Yes, you can! Plums, apricots, and nectarines will all work with this recipe. You don't even need to peel them.
