Peaches, peaches and more peaches!

I've been obsessed with peaches this summer.  It must be a good year for them!

One day on Facebook, my daughter saw the mini peach cobblers made in a muffin pan.  So we made that and it was as good as that basic peach cobbler recipe is.  You know, the one with milk, flour and sugar combined and poured over the butter in the pan...yeah.   I can't find the link now or I would show you.  Anyway, don't do this unless you enjoy cleaning those 12 muffin holes.  Takes about as long as making the cobbler!

In the midst of the kitchen remodel, I rediscovered a couple of cookbooks.  So I tried one of the cobblers in there, hoping to recreate the crispy crust peach cobbler we had back in the school cafeteria.   It turned out just ok.

But I love the Simple Peach Sorbet that I ran across in the Southern Living Homestyle cookbook.  Only 3 simple ingredients!  It's a great way to finish off those peaches that are getting ripe.

Simple Peach Sorbet

4 or 5 fresh ripe peaches, peeled and chopped
3/4 cup sugar
 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice

1) Process in a blender until smooth, stopping to scape down the sides.  Pour mixture into a pan.  Cover and freeze 3 hours or until firm.
2) Remove the pan from freezer, let stand 10 minutes.  Break frozen mixture into chunks and process again until smooth and serve.

In step 2, after letting it stand long enough to scoop it out of the pan, I skip the rest of that step and just eat it.

Yummy!  Now gotta go join Jamie, she's having a peachy party and Michelle's always having a potluck!


  1. Looks good. Mail it to me Special Delivery to Canada. Tee, heee) Lets have a bite.


    I know I can make the recipe you will say but I like surprises in mail too.

  2. What a great recipe. I've fallen more in love with peaches this year as well.

  3. I love this! I'll follow your advice and also skip after step 2. Great pick this month!

  4. I made a strawberry-peach sorbet last year but used my IC maker... this looks much simpler!

  5. They have been so good this year! We've bought 4 or 5 baskets from Isom's. I remember the cobbler from school now that you mention it, but what I really remember is the peanut butter cookies. Yum. And, of course, the meatloaf that had the shape of the bottom of the tin can. Not yum.

  6. What a delicious, refreshing sorbet! I love that it's so easy to make!!! I just bought 10 more pounds of peaches, so I'm loving this month's challenge :)

  7. What a great recipe, and it looks so refreshing! I can't wait to try it!

  8. I have never tried making a sorbet. This sounds easy enough! Sounds refreshing and bursting full of flavor!

  9. We had a peach tree when I was growing up, so I've had peaches many ways. But I have never had them this way! What a perfect summer recipe, Kerry.

    (And so much better than cleaning 12 muffin holes)

    Thank you for linking this week!
