AND served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream FTW!

Hello, dear friends! Happy Friday to you all! I thought we should welcome this glorious day with a wonderful Brown Betty recipe, and I am pretty sure I made the right decision.

I think it’s too hot for the oven, I do, I really do, but how can you pass up a brown betty?!? Or a cobbler, a crisp, a crumble?! I couldn’t resist. I think they’re all the same! …with a couple of super small differences.

Did you know that a brown betty is different in that the flour mixture is at the bottom of the fruit AND over it? Yep, google it. The rest of them crumbly fruity desserts have the flour/sugar/oat mixture over the fruit and not under it. 

Honestly, I had no other choice. Or I had too many choices, but I really liked this one the best.

As always, last week while I was at the farmer’s market, I bought too many nectarines, peaches, and cherries. We inhaled the nectarines and most of the cherries. For whatever reason, the peaches sat there. Untouched. Sorry boys.

When I finally went to grab one and bit into it, the juices that started to run down my arms reminded me of a warm cobbler. With a scoop of ice cream, of course.

Then my mind kept on going and going until I reached for the skillet and a bag of pecans…
Sidenote: is it pea-kuhns OR is it pea-cans? I say pea-kuhns. I could be totally wrong, BUT English is my second language so I am allowed to be wrong. Please, though, correct me if I am wrong. Thanks!

The process is very basic. We’re going to combine flour, pecans, sugar, butter and eggs + a few other minor things into a food processor to make our sweet crumbly crust.

The fruit filling is just that: fruit. You can use whatever you like, but peaches and cherries should be your choice. They pair up so, so well in this amazing, summery, warm dessert.

30 minutes into the oven and you end up with this amazingness…

    I made this tonight. The flavors came out well, but the bottom “crust” was pretty mushy. I think next time I’d either preheat the skillet or just do the top crumble part. Thanks for the recipe!

    I made this and it turned out very well. I think one could use oatmeal instead of the pecans for a person with a nut allergy. I didn’t have a cast iron pan so I made it in a glass baking dish and it worked out just fine. I omitted the strawberry flavoring because honestly, who has strawberry flavoring on hand?
    This recipe is definitely a keeper!

  3. I brought this to a friend’s house who has a gluten sensitivity. This was the first time I’ve ever made a gluten free dessert. I used Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Mix and swapped out pecans for hazelnuts because our store didn’t have hazelnuts, anyway, it was awesome.
    Also, I upped the fruit to 3.5 cups of peaches and 1.5 cups of cherries. Then I spread the crust out very thin more like pie crust–I pulled it um the sides of my skillet. When it was cut, it came out almost like pie. It was awesome. Flavor and texture was great. Served warm with vanilla ice cream. YUM! Would love to make it again with hazelnuts if I can find them.

  5. I’ve never made cobbler in a skillet before but it has to be the best way to bake anything in summer and totally beats turning on the oven.

  6. I always buy way too much stuff at the farmers’ market. I get so excited to see so much fresh local produce. Peaches are almost in season here. I can’t wait to bite into them and enjoy it the way you described. I’ll pay the price of a little extra heat in the kitchen for this yummy treat.

  7. I LOVE anything cooked in a skillet, and this looks especially delicious – peaches and cherries is a combo I, for some reason, have never tried! Soon to be remedied 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  8. Another delicious dessert Kate! I haven’t peaches this year yet, but I can’t wait to try… I wish I can make a cobbler with peaches and cherries… must be so delicious with ice cream on top… sigh… do you eat dessert every day? Lately I’m worrying about my weight even though I’m NOT making dessert at all (minus ice cream, but I’m in control)….imagine when I make this cobbler. In 30 minutes entire thing could disappear in my tummy…. this looks that good!

  9. This looks great Kate! I don’t think there’s ever a bad time for cobbler of any sort – may have to make an apple one this week because we got a bunch in our CSA =)

  10. MN is too cold for stone fruits so I have to settle for the aroma in the grocery store (heady but not the same). I buy 2-4 every day – because they do need to be eaten right away. But maybe I’ll let today’s peaches sit… and tomorrow enjoy a cobbler! Hazelnuts are always a good idea.

  11. What a fabulous cobbler….the addition of cherries just kicks it up a notch 🙂 I’d like mine with ice cream, but I would never refuse a bowlful with a dollop of whipped cream!

  12. Is it ever really too hot for cobbler? LOL. I love this recipe. And I love that it’s assembled and baked in a skillet. That’s a fun little twist! Fantastic!!!! I’ll take mine with vanilla ice cream. 😉

  13. I love cobblers. I always want to say it’s too hot for them too, and cave every time. Peach and cherry is such a fantastic fruit combination! I’ve always topped mine with vanilla ice cream….will definitely have to try your whipped cream trick 🙂

  14. I love peach cobbler and always make it during the summer. I also will make blueberry cobbler with the 40 pounds of blueberries I pick each summer. The only bad thing…..I EAT THE WHOLE THING BY MYSELF…..IN 1 1/2 DAYS……..
