Oregano's pizookie cookie dough! I'm serious. I consider myself to be a chocolate chip cookie connoisseur, and this might be the perfect cookie. Amen.

Amazing Peach Cobbler

This peach cobbler was so easy to make and so delicious! I haven't stopped thinking about it since we had it two nights ago. Make it tonight!! 1 stick unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp baking powder
3/4 cup milk
3 cups sliced fresh peaches - leave skins on
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350
Melt the butter in a medium saute pan over medium high heat until it bubbles and turns golden-brown
Pour the butter into an 8 inch square baking dish
In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and milk
Pour the batter on top of the melted butter, do not stir
Without mixing, arrange the peaches evenly on top of the batter
Evenly sprinkle the brown sugar over the cobbler
Bake the cobbler for 40-45 minutes, until the top turns golden-brown. The batter will migrate from the bottom of the pan to cover the peach slices partially.

Serve warm with vanilla icecream or whipped topping. Makes 6-8 servings.

Peach Smoothie

Every year I order peaches from Utah. They are soooo good! Since I ordered a whole box for my family (roughly 100) peaches, I figured I better try out some peach recipes before they go bad.

Today, the kids and I made Peach Smoothies. They were delicious and really easy to make!
2 medium peaches pitted
1 cup vanilla yogurt
1 cup crushed ice (i just crushed mine in the blender with the other ingredients)
1/4 cup sugar

blend all ingredients together in the blender until smooth
Stay tuned for more "peach" recipes.
