What was I doing at 10:30 pm the other night? Firing up the oven! I had this recipe idea in my head that just sounded really yummy and I wasn’t going to be able to sleep until I tested it out. So here is what came out of my middle of the night cooking escapade. It reminds me of something that my grandma may have made.
Peach Cheesecake Cobbler
What you need:
- 1/2 c. melted butter
- 3/4 c. flour
- 1/4 c. + 1/4 c. sugar
- 2 cups diced peaches (I used home canned)
- 1/2 c. cottage cheese
- 8 oz. cream cheese
Mix together the melted butter, flour, and 1/4 c. sugar. Grease the bottom of an 8×8 pan and pat 3/4 of this mixture on the bottom. Soften the cream cheese and add the cottage cheese and the rest of the sugar. Beat until smooth. (Or at least as smooth as a cottage cheese/cream cheese mixture can get! Pour this mixture over the top of the crust. Pour the peaches on top of the cheese mixture and then sprinkle what’s left of the butter/flour/sugar crumbles on top. Bake at 350F for about 25-30 minutes or until bubbly. Let it cool off for a while before you serve.
The crust is kind of a nice buttery shortcake. The cottage cheese adds a little lightness to the cream cheese filling and the peaches on top are there so you don’t feel 100% guilty about enjoying this dessert!
