The Big O…

Kindly remove your mind from the gutter. Not that O. I meant the O in Orama.

As in Peach-Orama.

Apparently my local grocery store is having one. Which of course I am a marketers dream and fall victim every time for things like that. Seriously. You put Orama, Fest, or Extravaganza at the end of something and I will be drawn in.

This worked especially well for my mother growing up. I can’t tell you how many times I fell for helping out at Laundry-Fest. Which, FYI, there is nothing festive about folding laundry. Sigh. Now a days I call them Laundry parties but my husband is too cleaver and catches on before I can sucker him into it. Tom Sawyer I am not.

So falling into the trap of Peach-Orama I ended up with a lot of peaches. Which just like all other fruit for some reason doesn’t want to sit around on my counter and in the fridge for 3 weeks while I leisurely get to it.

I went with a simple biscuit topped peach-raspberry cobbler (somehow ended up with a half flat of those as well). You definitely want to eat this with some ice cream. A biscuit top is usually a little on the plain side. But I love them because you can really taste the fruit. And well, that’s kind of the point of fruit desserts.

Peach-Raspberry Cobbler-Orama

4 cups peeled and cored peaches

1 cup raspberries

¾ cup granulated sugar

1 tsp peach schnapps

5 TBSP unbleached flour

for topping:

1 ¾ cups all purpose flour

½ cup granulate sugar

1 ½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

6 TBSP unsalted butter

½ cup cream

Decorative sugar for top

Pre-heat the oven to 375F.

I used individual ramekins, but you could use a 8-x-8-inch pan.

In a large bowl toss together the peaches, raspberries, sugar, schnapps, and flour. Set aside.

Evenly distribute peach mixture among ramekins, filling them almost full.

Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt. Add the cold butter and milk and stir until mixed. Spoon the biscuit mixture over the peaches. I used a mini ice cream scoop for this.

Sprinkle decorative sugar on top of the cobbler. Put into the oven and bake until the top browns, about 35-45 minutes depending on size of ramekins. Cool for about 20 minutes and serve with vanilla ice cream.


  1. Food porn alert! I wish I had some of this to enjoy right now after dinner. Looks amazing.

  2. Those fruits need to learn how to be patient! Don’t they know that inspiration can’t just come at the drop of a hat. Sheesh.

    This looks OMG good though. I’m kind of glad they were impatient.

  3. Oh, yum! I need to get in on the peach-orama action while they’re still in season. Saw some huge ones at the store the other day!

  4. Looks very good.
    Maybe I should try this with my cherries and apricots..

  5. Love the juices spilling down the sides of the ramekins – delish!

  6. What a fruit fest! That cobbler looks incredibly tempting and delicious!



  7. So fresh, colourful and summery. Delicious!

  8. So let’s put some hopping music on; each party goer picks a color and folds only that color … then has a cup of Peach-Raspberry Cobbler-Orama.
    I’ll pick red for my color or blue not white (too many undies and t-shirts white) ;-) see you can make it a real laundry fest!

  9. That looks delish- a party in a cup! Now if you have extra peaches, could you make a pie? Or peach ice cream. Or peach margaritas. See – so many party possibilities with peaches!

  10. Peaches are certainly something to celebrate!!

  11. OH, MY…

  12. You’ve got my mouth watering and now, I’m craving these cobblers!

  13. Peaches, raspberries, juices running down the side of the baking dish annnnnd cobbler! Who could ask for more (well, except for peach raspberry caramel bread pudding but there is still time in the peach-orama, right?)

  14. I hate that about fruits too. There’s always a deadline :(

  15. This looks absolutely divine! Peaches have been absolutely everywhere and I love it!! But I too am guilty of buying tons of seasonal fruit and then letting it go to waste :(

  16. I have recently been obsessed with peaches myself and have been yearning to make cobbler (on top of all my other peach dishes of course). I esp love the bright red-orange color of this filling from adding the raspberries, beautiful!!!
