For the peach filling:
- 4 large peaches, sliced (about 4 cups)
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp bourbon
For the crust:
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour, all purpose is just fine too)
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 5 tbsp salted butter, melted
- 1-3 tsp bourbon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- cinnamon and brown sugar, for sprinkling
- Heat smoker to about 350°F.
- Butter a 10-inch cast iron skillet.
- Spread peaches evenly in the bottom of the skillet. Sprinkle with brown sugar and drizzle evenly with bourbon. No need to stir.
- Make the curst. In a bowl, mix sugar, flour and baking powder. Add melted butter, bourbon and vanilla. Mix until moistened. The batter will be the texture of dense cookie dough.
- Crumble the batter over the peaches in the skillet. Sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar.
- Place skillet on the smoker and 'bake' with the lid closed for 35 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly and crust is crisp.
- Remove and serve cobbler with ice cream, whipped cream, or on it's own.
- I don't ever peel my peaches because I find it unnecessary and a time suck. But feel free to peel yours if you'd like!
- If you're using unsalted butter, add 1/4 tsp salt with the sugar and flour.
- The amount of bourbon you use in the crust will depend on personal preference. Use 1 tsp for a barely noticeable flavor, or up to 1 tbsp for a more pronounced bourbon flavor.
- If you're unsure of the temperature on your smoker, just keep an eye on the cobbler. You may need to cook it a little longer if the temperature is a bit low.
- This recipe works great on a Traeger or Big Green Egg. You can also bake it in the oven at 350°F for 35 minutes.
- This recipe is easily doubled. You can use a very large skillet or a 9x13 inch foil pan.
