Cinnamon Roll Peach Cobbler
Homemade Whipped Cream
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream right out of the fridge
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar confectioners or icing sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Prep Fresh Peaches
- If using fresh peaches you're going to have to get the skin off. First, bring a large pot of water to a boil. While waiting for the water to boil, fill a large bowl with ice water. Cut a small x on the bottom of your peaches.
- Place two to four peaches in the boiling water. Don't crowd the pot, or the water will become too cool. Leave the peaches in the boiling water for 30 seconds.
- Quickly remove them from the water and transfer them to your ice water for a couple of seconds until they've cooled enough to handle but are still very warm. I hold them with a silicone oven mitt. Peel the peaches beginning where you made the x. The skin should peel right off!
Prep Frozen Peaches
- Allow frozen peach slices to totally defrost and come to room temperature before rolling. Pat slices dry with paper towel before rolling in dough.
Assemble the Peach Cobbler
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Combine sugars, water, butter and cinnamon in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for 5-7 minutes to allow syrup mixture to thicken some. Stir regularly with wooden spoon.
- While syrup mixture is coming to a boil, butter a 9x13" baking dish.
- Roll out each crescent flat. Place 2 sliced peaches in each crescent and roll up and place in baking dish.
- Cut up remaining peach slices and sprinkle over top of the rolled crescents.
- Pour syrup mixture over crescents and lightly dust with extra cinnamon.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes until crescents are golden brown and bubbly.
- Allow to cool and top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Homemade Whipped Cream
- Pour heavy whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla into a medium to large bowl. Whisk on medium-high speed for 4-5 minutes until medium to stiff peaks form. Make sure you do not overbeat the mixture. Serve immediately.
