A few days ago, Ryan asked for peach cobbler for his birthday “cake” (the man has something totally against cake, which makes me sad, but it does mean I get to make a lot more pie than I would otherwise). Mind you, peach cobbler is hands-down my favorite dessert, especially since I get to put a couple of scoops of Blue Bell on top. There’s literally nothing better than a warm peach cobbler made with Fredericksburg peaches and a cold scoop of homemade vanilla. The hard part about cobbler is figuring out how to make it a great dairy-free peach cobbler recipe without sacrificing the taste and texture.
I make it a little different than my grandma used to (especially since real butter was one of her favorite foods), but oh man. This stuff is addictive! We may or may not have had it for breakfast on Ryan’s birthday morning (which would have made Awmaw extremely proud), but also for snack, dessert, and left a spoon in it to take bites as we walked by. I use Smart Balance “butter” to make this. I feel like it works the best for holding up until it can crisp, rather than melting before it stays crumbly. Plus, it means my sweet kiddo can help me make it for his daddy’s birthday (exclaiming “Daddy is going to LOVE this!” over and over) and get to partake later on since it’s a dairy-free peach cobbler recipe and totally safe for him!
Dairy-free peach cobbler is an AWESOME choice for an inclusive dish at your Fourth of July picnic (but of course, you can totally just use normal butter). If peaches aren’t your thing, this All-American apple pie is a great choice, too!
