Father's Day Bourbon Peach Cobbler

I am a little late on a Father's Day recap but I made a bourbon peach cobbler from scratch and just had to share the recipe. When y'all find a wonderful recipe, do you get super excited to share it with friends and family? I do for sure. This recipe was a huge hit with my family and I highly recommend it.

This Father's Day was near perfect. It consisted of Italian margaritas (recipe coming!), pool time and lots of delicious food with my dad

Tyler Florence's Bourbon Peach Cobbler:

Prep time: 25 minutes Cook time: 55 minutes

8 peaches, peeled and sliced, about 6 to 8 cups
1/4 cup bourbon
3/4 cup sugar, plus more for dusting
2 tablespoons corn starch
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
16 tablespoons (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter
3/4 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing

Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a large bowl add the peaches, bourbon, 1/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon and mix well to coat the peaches evenly; set aside.

Prepare the dumplings: Into a bowl sift together the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) butter into small pieces. Add it to the flour mixture and cut it in with a pastry blender or your hands until the mixture looks like coarse bread crumbs. Pour in the cream and mix just until the dough comes together. Don't overwork; the dough should be slightly sticky but manageable.

In a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium-low heat, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons butter. Add the peaches and cook gently until heated through, about 5 minutes. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls over the warm peaches. There can be gaps, the dough will puff up and spread out as it bakes. Brush the top with some heavy cream and sprinkle with some sugar; put it into the oven on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Cook for 40 to 45 minutes until the top is browned and the fruit is bubbling.

Serve warm with a side of vanilla ice cream :) Recipe via Food Network.

In other news...the pupperdoodle took a dip in the pool for the first time and let's just say love for the water is an understatement. That pup loves the pool. It's been hard keeping him from jumping in when we don't want him wet :)
