In Diane Kelly’s cozy mystery, Dead In The Doorway, the former owner of a flip house had won many blue ribbons for her peach pies, peach crisps, and cobblers. They were literally “To Die For”. Her recipes included many surprise ingredients, including fresh ginger, Mexican vanilla, lemon extract, and maple syrup.
I originally planned on making a more traditional cobbler, but my local grocery store was out of both sugar and flour. (Thank you Covid-19 for all the storages). What was the best substitute: Sugar Cookie Mix! Since it is March, I used frozen peaches. I can’t wait until summer so I can try it again with fresh nectarines.
This easy to make Peach Almond Cookie Cobbler is made with fresh or frozen peaches and maple syrup. Use package of sugar cookie mix and sliced almonds for a killer topping. I certainly think this is a blue-ribbon winner. Of course, it is even better served warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
