To continue on with my baked goods exploration started by my cobbler post, I chose to make a crisp. I found a recipe online for a grilled peach cobbler, but upon inspection, the recipe was actually one for a crisp. It called for a mostly granola topping (not an actual crust) for the peach filling. I started by halving the peaches and trying to de-pit them, but that required pretty much cutting up the entire peach to get it out. (My cutting skills aren't quite developed yet) So instead I sliced and twisted them apart, leaving the pit in for when they went on the grill.

 

 

 

 

Once they all had a nice set of grill markings I took them back inside and removed the pit, chopping the peaches into large chunks in the process. Rivet had taken 3 peaches the night before and baked them with some peppers from the garden. The next morning I took them out of the fridge and they looked like he’d blanched them. The juice had leaked out and helped the skin come off.

 

 

I chopped those 3 up as well and added them to the mix. I then mixed brown sugar, butter, and freshly ground cinnamon sticks (ruining the coffee grinder in the process Embarrassed) to the peaches.

 

 

The recipe also said to add flour to the peach filling. I remembered the advice I’d received on my blueberry pie to use tapioca instead. Against my better judgment, I used flour, thinking I should follow the recipe the first go around. Never again. But I’ll get to that in a sec… I poured my peaches into the pan.

 

 

Topped them with the granola with a little brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon added. Then it was off to be grilled alongside our chicken for dinner.

 

 

I forgot about the plated pics, but that’s ok. It looked like a big brown mess. The peppery peaches made this dessert very interesting. While the peaches did have a smoked flavor, the peppers gave it an unusual zing that felt like it kicked the back of my throat on the way down. The filling was a bit runny again (Tapioca for sure next time!) and it didn’t keep well because the granola got soggy after a while. I definitely learned a few things on this one which = great success!Smile

Cornstarch is a good thickener for pie fillings, too. And the coffee grinder wasn't ruined--just a little cinnamony! :)

I thought it was "deliciously snappy" Approve and a very nice crisp. Although a nice "crisp" style-topping instead of granola would have made it A-1 plus-perfect-outstanding, this was a mighty fine and delightful peach dessert! Thumbs Up Now you just have to keep on your cobbler-quest and make more!
