Crunchy Oatmeal Topping Peach Cobbler Recipe

6 cups fresh or frozen peach slices, peeled and pitted
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup unbleached (organic) flour
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup unbleached flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup rolled (organic) oatmeal
1 teaspoon (organic) ground cinnamon
4 ounces (organic) (1 stick) butter, cold, cut in 8 pieces

How To Make Peach Cobbler
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter a 9" X 9" glass baking pan or 2 quart stoneware baking dish. Set aside.
In a large bowl, toss peeled and pitted ripe peach slices with 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 flour and lemon juice and arrange in prepared baking dish. Set aside.
Combine 1 cup flour, 3/4 cup brown sugar, oatmeal and cinnamon in the bowl of a food processor, and pulse until blended.
With the food processor running, add cold butter a few pieces at a time. Pulse until the butter is incorporated and looks like coarse meal.

Spread topping ingredients evenly over the peaches and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until peaches are bubbling through and the topping is starting to brown. Remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes or more before serving.

Serve warm with Sweetened Whipped Cream ( or your choice of ice cream!
Refrigerate any leftovers if there are any left!
Serves 6.
This Peach Cobbler Recipe can be jazzed up by adding blackberries, raspberries or cherries for color, sliced almonds and almond extract for taste or pure maple syrup for sweetness. Experiment with different fruits and spices. Substitute apples for the peaches and voilà! Apple cobbler

Certainly easy to make. If you don't have a blender you can cut in the butter with a fork and/or mixer on low. Just made it and we'll see in one hour how it is!!!!

I baked this recipe 12 hours ahead for a family Easter gathering using frozen pears from last Fall's harvest and served warm with real vanilla ice cream on top.
All comments were highly positive!

My substitutions for a Dairy/ Gluten Free recipe:
8c Pears vs. 6c peaches
Rice Flour vs. AP flour
Orange Juice vs. lemon juice
2t Apple Pie Spice vs. 1t cinnamon
Gluten Free rolled oats
Smart Balance Buttery Spread vs. butter (I love butter!)

The food processor method was omitted to keep the oats whole. I believe I could have used 1c oats instead of 3/4c for added texture and the final product would still hold up without adding more juice.
