After tracking down the new Del Monte Diced Peaches with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar at Walmart (and loving them) recently, I have to admit that it took me a little while before I was willing to share them with my family. They're just that good!
But although I could have eaten every last tasty little cup while enjoying my Mommy Time, I also wanted to try this yummy combination of flavors in a more creative way than simply right out of the cup. I thought of peach pie, peach crumble, even a peach smoothie... but after wracking my brain a bit more, I came up with the answer that would not only be delicious but extremely simple to make:
Crockpot Peach Cobbler
1 cup biscuit mix
⅓ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar, packed
½ cup evaporated milk
2 teaspoons butter, melted
4 prepackaged cups (~4 oz each) of Del Monte Diced Peaches in light syrup with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
Lightly butter a slow cooker or cover with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, combine both sugars and the baking mix. Add eggs and vanilla and stir until blended.
Pour in butter and evaporated milk and stir. Add in peaches and cinnamon and stir until well mixed.
Pour into the slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low setting for 5 to 6 hours or on High for 3 to 4 hours. I used Low and peeked in at 5 hours and felt that it wasn't quite enough, so I left it for another half hour (even though it smelled divine). This time when I pulled off the top, it looked ready to eat:
You saw that picture at the top with the scoop of vanilla ice cream, right? Mmmmmmm.
The combination of the warm, sweet cobbler - that was just the right amount of sweet peaches, yummy cinnamon and delicious brown sugar - with the cold ice cream was just right. I could still taste the flavor of the light syrup from the Del Monte cups, but it wasn't at all overpowering to the dish as a whole.
Oh yes, it was definitely good.
And this time, I was even willing to share.
Yum! I'm always looking for more ways to use the crockpot (I love easy cooking!) and I never would have thought to try this if it wasn't for the Diced Peaches in light syrup with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar. Thanks to Del Monte, this is surely something that I'm going to have to make many more times in the future!
