Whenever it starts getting cooler, I love baking even more. There’s something about the contrast between the cold and snowy outside versus a warm, just-baked smell inside the house that makes baking that much more fun. As we’re approaching the holidays, I’ve started baking a few more “home goods”, such as this tasty Almond Peach Cobbler. Of course, I used my favorite pie filling – Lucky Leaf pie filling – as the foundation of this tasty dessert.
- 2 21-ounce cans Lucky Leaf Premium Peach Pie Filling
- ½ cup Amaretto (or 2 tsp. of pure almond extract)
- 1 17.5-ounce package sugar cookie mix
- 1 cup sliced almonds
- ½ cup butter, cubed
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Spread pie filling into an ungreased 13x9-inch baking dish. Drizzle with Amaretto (or almond extract).
- Sprinkle cookie mix and almonds over top; dot with butter.
- Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is golden brown.
- Serve warm.
First, you start off with 5 simply ingredients: 2 cans of Lucky Leaf Premium Peach Pie Filling (or any other fruit flavor), Amaretto (or almond extract), sugar cookie mix, sliced almonds, and butter.
Next, pour both cans of peaches into the baking dish, spreading them out so there will be peach with every bite. Then drizzle with the Amaretto or almond extract.
I mixed together the sugar cookie mix and the sliced almonds in a bowl, but you can also sprinkle the sugar cookie mix onto the peaches first and then sprinkle the sliced almonds. I thought mixing the two together would help there be almonds through each bite.
Finally, top with the cubed butter. I did 4 rows of 5 cubes, but you don’t have to be that particular. Just make sure there aren’t any big gaps.
Place the dish in the oven and bake it until it’s bubbly and golden brown. It was closer to the 35 minute cooking time for my oven. This dish cooled quickly so it was ready to serve warm in a matter of minutes.
I’m not the hugest peach fan but I am a huge fan of this peach cobbler. The almond extract really adds another layer of flavor to this cobbler that makes it so tasty – almost savory. The cobbler topping came out perfectly, with a lovely crunch that isn’t too sweet. Considering this was my first time both baking and eating peach cobbler, I have to say that I kind of impressed myself. Easy to bake and easy to enjoy. Sounds win-win to me!
