Tree Shaker Peach Cobbler

tree-shaker-bottle-glassWe’re shaking things up around the brewery. Tree Shaker, our new Spring Seasonal, is now available in 4-packs! This beer shouts warm weather, sunshine, and good times.  Not only is this well balanced Imperial Peach IPA great for drinking on any occasion… it’s also great for cooking with. Hellooo patio season!

 

Common-Link, a local food truck here in Fort Collins, often takes these specialty beers and cooks up something delicious for us all to enjoy! When deciding what to make for our release party last weekend, Peach Cobbler came to mind. Jesse and her husband Derrick (owners and masterminds of Common-Link) received local flour from their friend, Bryce, at Hediger Farms and wanted to make something special. This Peach Cobbler strays a little from their typical sausages, poutine, and pretzel bites, but it is sure to shake things up!

 

 

 

Peach CobblerCobbler Topping:

 

2 cups flour – we use local Fort Collins milled flour from Hediger Farms
1.5 cups brown sugar – less if the peaches are sweet
1.5 cups oats – we use Fort Collins gluten free oats
1.5 cups melted butter

Combine all dry ingredients and thoroughly mix. Add in melted butter and mix until incorporated. Store at room temp.

Filling:

12 cups peaches
1/4 lb butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup Tree Shaker
2 T cinnamon
1 T allspice
1 T nutmeg

Melt the butter in a large pan and add peaches and let cook 6-8 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients until you see a nice syrup consistency 5-7 minutes.

Assembly:

Grease a 9×9 pan. Add the peaches. Spread the crumble evenly on top. Bake for 35-40 minutes until a deep golden brown.

Fresh Whipped Cream:

Whip 2 cups heavy whipping cream. Use a cold bowl and whisk if possible. Add in 1.5 T sugar and whip to desired peak consistency – soft or stiff. Add fresh mint leaf.

 

Go ahead… Indulge!
