How to make a delicious gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free peach cobbler?
First start with fresh peaches. I know; it's not peach season. We were lucky enough to have the pleasure of visiting Gregg Farm in Concord, Georgia back in July. At the orchard we got a big bushel of peaches picked straight from the trees.
They were so good, we enjoyed most of them right away. But where able to manage to freeze some for when we needed them during thanksgiving. Frozen peaches hold up well and we think you’ll be happy with the results of your thanksgiving cobbler.
While we’ve made pies, cookies, cakes and even puddings; we never made a gluten-free vegan peach cobbler before. To our surprise; it wasn't that difficult. But it did require a little precision when it came to trimming and rolling the dumplings. It also required time when it comes to creating the peach sauce.
The smell of the kitchen while the cobbler is baking is the most delightful and aromatic experience. The peaches and cinnamon with the homemade buttery dumpling crusts created an incredible aroma.
Making this recipe Gluten-Free and Vegan is super simple you'll just need to substitute the butter and milk. For the gluten-free part you can pick up a cup for cup gluten-free flour like King Arthur Flour or Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free flour.
After trying this recipe for ourselves; we decided it would be the perfect dessert to share with our family and friends this Thanksgiving. We hope they’ll enjoy eating it as much as we enjoyed baking it.
