Fresh Peach Cobbler Dumplings


Because... I only use peaches in the fall.

It's a rain filled gloom-fest today and my little and I are trying to figure out what to do besides run outside and play in the rain (PS- we eventually ended up playing in the rain after we ate the peach dumplings).

My boy is a nature enthusiast, so days when we're stuck inside are hard on him, which is why we end up making random recipes like Fresh Peach Cobbler Dumplings in the middle of the day.

The teacher in me loves cooking with kids because it's a great science and fine motor activity. He loves the all of the measuring, scooping and pouring that's involved. Not to mention the tasting testing! Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that the best part of cooking?

The wife/mom in me just found a valid reason to make the house smell like fall... and use up the peaches that in a new way before they go bad.



Peaches have always been one of my favorite fall fruit, mainly because I smother them in cinnamon and sugar, and aren't those spices the scent of fall, anyway?

This recipe is an easy, simple peach cobbler alternative that turned out so well that my little guy kept asking for more! I tried to throw a few blueberries on there for the sake responsible parenting - which worked because my son kept picking them off the peach dumplings between shots.

Even though this an easy comfort food, if you double dog dare me, I might be inclined to make a healthier peach dish in the near future.
