I do have times when I'm in a pinch and I need a dessert rather quickly, so canned peaches come in very handy. Some folks turn their noses up at using canned peaches in a cobbler, but I like to use them especially in quick cobblers.
Last week I was poking around on Pinterest and found a recipe for a peach cobbler that immediately caught my attention. It was a quick cobbler recipe called Moms Peach Cobbler. but I changed the name because it totally needs to be called Magic Peach Cobbler.
You see this cobbler has a crispy topping that is too die for. The secret ingredient to make this crispy topping is sugar and boiling water! I didn't believe it at first, but once I made the cobbler I was amazed at how awesome the topping was.
I did tweak the recipe just a bit by adding vanilla extract, 1/3 cup of sugar instead of 1/2 cup for the topping, and adding cinnamon into the sugar mixture. Once the boiling water is poured over the sugar topping something magical starts to happens. I don't know what it is, but it makes the topping crispy and delicious.
If you're looking for an easy dessert for your next barbecue, potluck or get together, give this magic peach cobbler a try. I just know everyone will love it. I plan on making another one tomorrow as a surprise treat when we visit family.
