Peach Cobbler in a Jar

Friday, April 17, 2015

These peach cobblers are a favorite here. My family loves the fact that they are single servings and they can pop the jar in the microwave and have peach cobbler in about 30 seconds. This recipe is so yummy! And you can make it with apples,blueberries,cherries...anything that would make   a great cobbler.

This recipe is super easy using canned pie filling.Whether it  be peach or another fruit. I usually use the canned pie fillings in the fall and winter months,whether they be store bought or a product of my own home canning. But this time I used fresh peaches.I peeled and sliced 3 large pieces,cut them into 6 slices per peach, and heat them up in a skillet with butter,sugar and cinnamon,on medium heat, until they are soft.Then I proceeded to add them,3 slices each,to the jars.

As a side note, I try to have at least one can of pie filling in the house,just in case someone wants dessert and I don't want to slave over making crusts,meringues etc.;) Also, I have always found my 1/2 pint jars at Wal Mart. I use them for all sorts of things.Cobblers,jellies and jams,snacks for the road,individual banana puddings.The list is never-ending.

Peach Cobbler in a Jar
makes 5 1/2pint jars

21 oz jar of peach pie filling (or other fruit filling,if you prefer)
1/2 cup bisquick mix
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter,melted
Cinnamon Sugar (optional)

1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2.Spray 5 1/2 pint mason jars with cooking spray.Set them inside a casserole dish big enough to hold all five,without touching.
3.In a medium bowl, add the  bisquick ,milk,sugar and salt.Mix well to incorporate.Add the melted butter and stir well to mix.Set aside.
4.Add 3 peach slices to each jar.
5.Pour about a Tablespoon or so of batter on top of the peaches.There should be a small amount of headspace.If you fill it to  the tippy top,the batter will bake over the jar and it will be hard to get the tops on them.
6.Bake for about 30 minutes,until the batter is rich and golden,and the peaches are bubbly.
7. You can serve these a few minutes after pulling them from the oven,or you can put the jar lids on top  when they are still hot and use them within the next 3 days  or so,if they last that long.
8.Optional: I always shake cinnamon sugar on top  of the batter before it goes in the oven.We are huge cinnamon fans around here!
