Did you know that almonds and peaches are related to each other? They are both part of the botanical family Prunus that includes almonds, peaches, plums, cherries, and apricots. One way you can remember that is that—similar to peaches— what we call the almond nut is actually the seed inside the stone (or pit) of the almond fruit. The peach pit has a seed inside, too, called the “peach kernel” that also looks very much like an almond. We don’t eat those but we do eat almonds, and that made me think about desserts that might combine members of the Prunus family together. That’s why recipes for Almond Peach Cobbler came across my radar.
I love cobblers! They were one of the first desserts I learned to make as a little girl because you don’t have to have a lot of baking skills. No pie dough to roll and place neatly in place with tiny child hands. But a wonderful delicious pay-off once it comes out of the oven again! And you can make them with pretty much any combination of fruit that you want.
I’ve had tropical summer cobblers made with mangos, pineapples, and banana, strawberry rhubarb cobblers early in the spring. Apple cobblers are, of course, classic but have you tried cherry or apricot? All good, every one. So even though this recipe calls for peaches, use any fruit you want including fruit mixes like peaches and blueberries as the photo I chose shows.
