This creation was born of a desire for peach cobbler and no fresh peaches and no way to get any right then. {smiles}

so –use what you have!

[great for mid-winter when fresh fruit is not readily available…or affordable.]

Preheat oven to 375*.

1 can of sliced peaches [in natural juices or light syrup], spread out in a 9×13 pan & cover with 1/2 [or so] cup of rolled oats [not the quick cook kind]

cobbler1

looking yum already!

2-3 very ripe apples sliced thinly [about 16 slices per apple for me]; layer over the peaches and oatmeal.

cobbler2

Sprinkle your own mixture of cinnamon and sugar… [I like to make my own mixture so it can be more cinnamony and less sugary than the store-bought].

And then for a extra special holiday flavor I sprinkle about 1 -1-1/2 tsp allspice on it.

For a topping I have used several different things:

cobbler4

Store bought cresent rolls: self-explanatory

My favorite was pie dough.

And have also used a streusel type dough, but that’s a LOT of oatmeal.

Cover with your desired [or available] dough

cobbler5

Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes …or until juices are bubbly.

sorry it’s blurry

Allow to cool at least 20 min. [yeah right!]

blurry again -ugh.

blurry again -ugh.

and consume.

My latest addition was about 1 cup of frozen blueberries sprinkled on before the dough topping. If you have a child that is fond of brightly colored foods… it makes the WHOLE oatmeal part very purple. {smiles} It was VERY yum.

And if you like it more fruity-use 2 cans of peaches [but drain 1 of the juice] or 1 can of peaches and 1 can of apricots or pears.

Serving options include: warm, ala mode [vanilla or REAL strawberry-YUM], whipped cream, with other fresh berries.

ENJOY!
