easy peachy cobbler

This is my default dessert in a pinch.  It's ridiculously simple, quick but super delicious. 

large can of peaches
box of cake mix
stick of butter
handful of oats

Preheat oven to 350 or 400 depending on the temperament of your oven. Empty the can of peaches (including juice) into your favorite baking dish. Cut peach slices into smaller bits and bite sized chunks.  Pour cake mix on top of peaches. Spread evenly but not necessarily smooth.  Toss handful of oats on top. Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg.  Grate refrigerated stick of butter over top , evenly. Bake about 15 min until juice is bubbly and top is crispy.  (*note: cake mix is not expected to cook all the way like a cake)


This would especially hit the spot if served warm with vanilla bean ice cream.

Variations: canned cherry pie filling with chocolate cake mix-minus oatmeal
apple pie filling topped with vanilla cake mix, extra oats.
Nutmeg is my most favorite spice and secret ingredient is just about everything. sssshhh! really!

We enjoyed this yummy dessert this evening.  The guys braved the extra chilly weather outside, putting up the Christmas lights.  They were rewarded sweetly. My #2 son was excited to finally be allowed up on the roof with his big brother.  What a rite of passage!

Desserts are so lovely.  Especially shared with friends and loved ones, over good conversation, on the good plates, of course. Don't forget the hot tea. ;-)
