Easter is right around the corner, and like any holiday, it requires a lot of food and family! While I love spending time with family, cooking on holidays takes quite a bit of time and effort. If you remember my last blog post, I talked about how Ian and I are in a position right now where we just don’t have a lot of extra time to slave over the oven for hours. So, this year I wanted to simplify Easter a bit & make it easier for everyone involved!
I decided to make a Peach Cobbler Dessert Waffle! This dessert does not just look pretty – it tastes amazing, too. The flavors combined jump out at you and dance in your mouth. To make everything easier, I used a Mrs. Smith’s Peach Cobbler. This cobbler saved me so much time, and it honestly tastes just like a homemade cobbler because it is made with real butter (it is actually the ONLY frozen fruit pie made with real butter)! So good. I keep a few of these stocked in my freezer because we love to enjoy them year-round, not just during the holidays. I picked mine up at Walmart and realized that there is actually an Ibotta rebate offer right now for Mrs. Smith’s Pies and there is also a rebate offer for Edwards Pies, so make sure you stock up! I must be on a pie kick lately, because I also tried an Edwards pie, and it was just as good!
The pie made things so much easier, and it blended so well with all of the other flavors. I decided to mix the cobbler into homemade vanilla ice cream to make a peach ice cream, I made a maple whipped cream (SO good), and of course, I topped the waffle with all of that, as well as gooey peaches, nutmeg, and a drizzle of maple syrup. Check out the recipe below, and let me know what you think!
Peach Cobbler Dessert Waffle With Maple Whipped Cream
1 Mrs. Smith’s Peach Cobbler
Frozen Waffles (or your homemade Waffles)
For the ice cream:
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 1/8 cups sugar
3 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
Half of the peach cobbler
For the whipped cream:
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
– Bake your peach cobbler as instructed on the package. Take it out of the oven to cool completely.
– When you cobbler has cooled a bit, start making your ice cream:
– Mix together your milk and sugar until the sugar is dissolved (about 1-2 minutes).
– Stir in your heavy cream and vanilla.
– Place into your fridge until you pie cools the rest of the way. Your pie cannot be warm, or it will melt your ice cream completely.
– When your pie is cool, take your ice cream mixture out of the fridge & place the mixture in your freezer bowl. Let it mix until it has thickened (about 30 minutes).
– Once it has a creamy consistency, add small chunks of your cobbler into the ice cream. Add about half (or more) of the cobbler.
– If you like your ice cream soft, you are ready to plate your meal. If you want your ice cream to have a firmer texture, take your peach cobbler ice cream out of the freezer bowl & transfer into an airtight container to freeze until the mixture firms up.
– Next, you will make your maple whipped cream. Beat your heavy cream until soft peaks form. Then, add your maple syrup & vanilla extract and beat again until stiff peaks form.
– Plate your meal! Put the waffle(s) on bottom, and top with your Peach Cobbler ice cream, gooey peaches leftover from your Cobbler, maple whipped cream, nutmeg & drizzle with more maple syrup! Enjoy!
