Lavender Peach Skillet Cobbler



We picked up some AMAZING Peaches today from Blake's Orchada in Armada, Michigan... This is on the dessert menu for this weekend! I LOVE FALL! (Photo courtesy of Donna Agusti Photography)

Lavender Peach Skillet Cobbler

This cobbler boasts the same buttery flavor and crunchy topping as old-fashioned cobbler, except we make it in a skillet!  This fruitful dessert offers a delightful sweet ending to any meal. It’s best served warm and topped with Ice Cream, and we recommend Rich Lavender Honey Ice Cream for an extra-decadent delight.

Filling:
3 cups fresh peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced (may substitute for frozen)
1 cup fresh blueberries or raspberries (may substitute for frozen)
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp cornstarch

Topping:
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup brown sugar
¼ cup sugar
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
½ tsp organic culinary lavender buds
5 Tbsp butter, very cold and cut into chunks
 
Heat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large cast-iron skillet or oven-proof skillet, heat together the ingredients for the filling over a medium heat until the mixture begins to bubble. (2-3 minutes) Mix well and remove from the heat.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and lavender. With a pastry blender, (or with your hands) mix the butter in until the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over the fruit mixture. Place the cobbler in the oven and bake, uncovered, for 30-40 minutes.
