Gluten Free For Good


More About Melissa

It’s peach season in Colorado! Georgia has nothin’ on us when it comes to sweet, juicy peaches. And Morton’s Orchards in Palisade, Colorado grows some of the best in the country (certified organic). They also grow cherries, apricots, and nectarines, all with specific ripening and picking dates.

After a weekend trip to the local farmer’s market, I decided I better get creative with all these peaches I bought.

Colorado cobbler (gluten-free/dairy-free)

what you need
peach filling

5 or 6 fresh, ripe peaches (remove pits and slice)
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons GF flour mix* (or your favorite)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
dash of salt
(whisk together brown sugar, GF flour, cinnamon, and salt and set aside to use as a coating mix for peaches)

what you need

1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup GF flour mix* (or your favorite)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup Earth Balance 100% vegan Natural Butter (cold)

what you do
peach filling

preheat oven to 375 degrees
put sliced peaches in large bowl and coat with prepared coating mix (gently stir to cover peaches)
pour prepared peach filling into a greased baking dish (pie pan size)

what you do

whisk together brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon in medium sized bowl
mix in the chopped pecans
using two knives, cut in the Earth Balance Natural Butter
cover prepared peaches with topping mix

Bake in 375 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes until bubbly, checking after 30 minutes to make sure topping doesn’t burn. Loosely place a piece of tin foil over the cobbler for the last 15 to 20 minutes to keep the top from over-browning. Keep an eye on it, don’t let it burn.

Let cool for 10 to 15 minutes and serve. Top with your favorite ice cream or non-dairy ice cream. Yum!

*GF flour mix – use your favorite general GF baking mix or try the one listed below.

*gluten-free flour mixture (makes 9 cups)
4 cups finely ground brown rice flour
2 cups finely ground white rice flour

Store in refrigerator or freezer and use as needed.
I like Authentic Foods superfine white and brown rice flours.
