Small Batch Peach Cobbler Crisp for Two is the perfect dessert for date night. Perfectly sweet and great all year round.
Oh how I love desserts. Seriously it’s a problem. It all started back in high school when I took Home Economics (showing my age here) and made a peach cobbler. It was love at first bite. I used to take my creations (ok they were just recipes the teacher gave us to complete) to my English class and we would sit around eating the food I made that day. It was the best time and probably the only time I was able to cook on my own for the first time. Growing up my mom made all our dishes although I was allowed to roll out one tortilla when she would make them. Mine always were in weird shapes though and I still have not mastered a round tortilla.
Peach cobbler wasn’t something we had at home ever. It was like a whole new world opened up to me in that class. I’ve been making it and eating it ever since. Whenever I see it on a menu, I have to get some because it’s not something I usually make at home. But some times I don’t want the heavy cobbler part, but maybe just a little? Enter this Peach Cobbler Crisp for Two. It’s a small batch so there isn’t a whole lot left over to eat yourself and has just enough sweetness to make it perfect.
Oh em gee I’m in love. It’s miniature because, duh are you new here? I will make anything into a mini replica. The only thing I like more than mason jars is a small cast iron skillet. And pecans. I will throw pecans on anything and call it good. Sometimes I buy a huge bag at Costco then when I need them for a recipe they are gone. I can’t be trusted with a lot of things, and pecans is one of them.
This has been one of my go to desserts for a while now and especially during the summer but I see it continuing all year long. Sure you can make it out of fresh peaches but I usually have a can of peaches in the pantry for just this craving. I’m all about simple and giving yourself a break. Get you some!
