today is a good day. not only did i get a new camera but staub USA also sent me the cutest set of mini cocottes. i have wanted these for SO long (too long) & now i finally have them! i'd say my staub collection is coming along nicely. i knew peach cobbler was going to be the first thing i wanted to make in them when they arrived. unlike a crisp which is topped with buttery oats, a cobbler is topped with a cakey (& super buttery) biscuit mixture. this recipe is really easy & packs so much fruity + buttery flavour into it. you can do them in individual portions or in a 9x13 baking dish BUT do me a favour & serve it with a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream. i didn't have any on hand & by the time i realized it was too late.
