One of my besties.. hosted a follow up to our Christmas in July Cookie party.. and hosted Christmas in July Birthday party for her son this am. She posted photos from the party.. and I just fell in love with her mini cobblers.. How cute are they?? and the recipe looks pretty straight forward... The cobblers are nestled in mini Christmas Tree ramekins from Crater and Barrel...

mini peach cobblers baking in the oven this morning for Christmas in July.

Filling:
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon corn starch
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3 Tablespoons butter (or shortening)

Topping:
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk

Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix 1/3 cup sugar and the cornstarch and cinnamon in a large saucepan. Stir in the peaches and lemon juice. Cook, stirring, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute. Pour into 8 ungreased ramekins (or other cute oven-proof dishes of equal size and shape). Place all dishes on a baking tray and keep them hot in the oven.

Combine flour, 2 teaspoons sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in milk. Go easy on the milk - you just need enough for the dough to stick together. On a well-floured surface, press the dough out gently til it is about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out shapes to match the shape of your ramekins.

Take the tray with the ramekins on it out of the oven and carefully place the crust on each. Be sure to leave some space around the edge so you can see the peaches.

Bake until topping is golden brown, 10-15 minutes. Serve warm, and if you like, top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
