This is definitely my new favorite thing in the whole world to eat. I'm not joking. When I think about fall, of course, I think pumpkin and spice and all that, but really, I think about peaches. Probably because it seems like I shouldn't be eating them in the fall, so they're taboo, but alas, I love them.
This is probably also the easiest recipe in the whole world. All you need are puff pastry sheets, canned peaches (or fresh if you feel not-lazy, but then you will need to cook them off with sugar and corn starch, so they are like pie filling.) and I put tons and tons of ginger in them, because I love peaches and ginger. You can skip that step also, if you want.
When I worked in Tucson, I used to make peach and ginger cobbler and a man named Dudley would come into the cafe often looking for the peach ginger cobblers. He loved them, almost as much as me.
I cut my pastry sheets into 5x5 squares, brushed them with egg wash, and spooned the peach/ginger mix into the center. Then fold them like a present, seal the edges with egg wash, flip them, egg wash the tops. I topped mine with granulated sugar AND crystallized sugar.
Bake for about 25 minutes, or until your puffs are browned and round. If you sprinkle powdered sugar on them while they are still warm, they sugar will melt a little and taste extra good.
I loved that the tops of some of them cracked and you can see the peach inside. I love imperfect pastries. Like, a lot.
So, that's my new favorite treat. I ate one for breakfast this morning, and will probably have another after lunch. That's how much I love them! If you try these out, link back up to me, I would love to see how much you love them too!
