Peach Pie Cinnamon Roll Cobbler

I’m just gonna say it, peaches are the best stone fruit.

Yeah, nectarines are great. Plumbs are good too. But the real winner in this contest are peaches.

They have the most inviting smell when they are ripe. Cut one open or take a bite to reveal a soft, juicy fruit that just screams summer.

When I was pregnant with Autumn I craved them so much. I killed out grocery budget that summer with pounds and pounds of peaches. The baby gets what the baby wants!

I love peach pie and cobblers using fresh and frozen peaches, but canned peach pie filling was on sale recently so I grabbed some of that, and apple pie filling (stay tuned!). I have used that before in an awesome dump cake and let’s just say that was simple and delightful. Can’t beat some cake and fruit combined into a fruity, sweet cake. noms!

While the peach dump cake was nice and easy, this cobbler is EVEN EASIER than that!

This cobbler is just 2 ingredients!!! Just 2 cans of peach pie filling and a can of cinnamon rolls. I only suggest that you use the Duncan Hines Simply Fruit Pie Filling. Of course you can use whatever, but I think that is the best one. Totally not sponsored, I’m just opinionated about these things!

All you need to do it pour the pie filling into a pie plate, cut the cinnamon rolls into 4 pieces and top the pie filling with the pieces, bake, drizzle the frosting over it. It really takes about 5 minutes to make, and 40 minutes to bake. It can’t get simpler than that.

And you can definitely make this with cherry pie filling or apple pie filling. All of those options are delicious as well. Basically any fruit with cinnamon rolls is gonna be epic.

Be sure to enjoy your peach pie cobbler with some whipped cream or some vanilla ice cream. You won’t be able to resist.

Streusel Topped Peach Pie

Streusel Topped Peach Pie-1

Streusel or Strudel… I always mix them up. Always.

So when I was going to tell Price I was making a Streusel Topped Peach Pie I practiced it in my head over and over again. AFTER googling it to make sure I was right.

Streusel Topped Peach Pie-2

It’s just one of those weird mind farts I have. And I’m okay with it. I do imagine a strudel topped peach pie would be good too… ha!

Streusel Topped Peach Pie-3

Anyway, right now peaches are crazy good. I have always loed peaches but I fell head over heels in love with them while I was pregnant last summer. I developed the craziest sweet tooth. Instead of grabbing for donuts and cupcakes I had a bit of restraint and went after fruit, and lots of it! Peaches were my crutch as I ate insane amounts of them. They are hard to resist when they are perfectly ripe, sweet, and juicy late in the summer. Bliss.

Streusel Topped Peach Pie-4

Well, I still really love peaches so I wanted to make a peach pie with them. And then I thought I would put some strudel streusel on top. It’s kinda like a weird marriage of peach pie and coffee cake. The crumbs on coffee cake are the best part. The bigger the crumb the better, too.

This pie starts off really high, but falls as it bakes so don’t worry about it being too tall. Or having too much streusel prepared. You do use it all up as you place small mounds on the peaches and then gently even it all out and get the crumbs in the nooks between the peach slices.

I used almond meal in the Streusel to add some more flavor to the crumbs but if you can’t find it then just use flour. I just love the flavors of peaches and almonds together, you know from all the strudels I’ve had. ha!

Streusel Topped Peach Pie-5

Enjoy this pie within a day or 2 as the juicy fruit will soften the butter crumbly topping and then it just gets soggy and no one likes soggy streusel.

I suggest serving this pie by warming it slightly and topping it off with some vanilla bean ice cream. And of course you should sit outside with your feet in the grass as you enjoy the evening cool down. Damn, I love summer.

French Vanilla Peach Pie

I’m gonna sneak in one last summer recipe before I switch over to fall related things with apples, pumpkin and cranberries. I was just in Charlotte and it was warmer there than Boston and I saw peach pies for sale there. So let’s just say this pie is dedicated to Charlotte.

 

I never made a peach pie prior to this one. I always stuck with cobblers when I had stone fruit at hand. I don’t know why I always limited myself. It’s not to say that only making delicious cobblers is limiting but I don’t know why I never really considered to make a pie before. It’s super simple and lighter than a heavy biscuit cobbler, making it perfect for an end of summer dessert.

 

As with all fruit pies, I think that this pie is better the next day. As temping as it is to pull it out of the oven and dive in I think that giving the pie an over night to let the flavors intensify makes it so much better. Most of all, this allows for the sweet syrup that was created from the fruit juices and sugar to thicken, which makes cutting and serving easier. Well, at least, a tab bit less messy.
