Individual Peach Cobblers with Vanilla Ice Cream

At 9pm after Emma has gone to bed and Mike and I are winding down we're always in the mood for something sweet.  Last week, I really wanted just a bite (or two...) of freshly baked, hot and bubbly, crumbly peach cobbler topped with vanilla ice cream.  Who wouldn't?

I whipped up a mini guy for us to share and put the rest of the crumb cobbler topping (I had made too much...) in the freezer.  Perfect - next time I have a craving and have a couple of peaches (or apples or berries...) lying around, I can just grab a handful of topping from the freezer. 

simple crumbly
Cobbler Topping

2 1/2 cups of flour
1 1/4 cup of sugar (or vanilla sugar)
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 pound of butter, cold (2 sticks)

In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add flour, sugar, brown sugar and salt.  Stir together. Cut butter into small pieces (about 1/2 inch cubes) and add them to the bowl and mix on medium low for a few minutes until the mixture starts to come together and is a crumbly texture.

For the individual cobblers, the amount of fruit filling and topping depends on the size of the bowl you're using.  In general, here is the ratio :

2 peaches + 1 tablespoon of sugar +  1 teaspoon of flour + 1/4 cup of topping

For this size, bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until the filling bubbles and the topping begins to brown. 

To peel peaches easily, drop them in a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds, then put them in ice water.  The skins will peel off easily with the help of a pairing knife.


Here is the extra topping ready to go into the freezer for the next last minute mini craving...
