Peach Dumpling Cobbler May Become Your Favorite Peach Dessert

Peach Dumpling Cobbler, a cobbler made with fresh sliced peaches layered between three layers of sweet, tender, buttery dough.  Boiling water is poured over the whole cobbler.  The dough transforms magically, making sheets of dumplings. Peach Dumpling Cobbler is the first dessert I want to make as the peach season approaches.  We love my Double Crust Peach Cobbler  recipe, but here lately the Peach Dumpling Cobbler has taken the first choice to make.   They are both easy enough to make.  We just love the dumpling texture in the Peach Dumpling Cobbler.   And really the only difference in the two recipes is the Peach Dumpling Cobbler has 3 layers of crust instead of two and 2 cups of boiling water is poured over the whole cobbler.  This is where all the magic happens, tender sheets of dumplings. Since the Peach Dumpling Cobbler is baked with the water, I bake it in a deep oblong baking dish.  

Christmas In July! Chessmen Butter Cookie Pineapple Pudding

Pineapple Pudding , creamy, velvety homemade custard pudding layered between Pepperidge Farm Chessmen Butter Cookies, classic southern.  The Christmas Chessmen add a charming touch to the dessert during the holidays, simply scrumptious. Christmas in July is a fun Christmas celebration in July that originated from the circumstance that in the southern hemisphere, Christmas is actually celebrated in the summer.   So for the residents from that area, they began to have Christmas celebration in July so they could enjoy the holiday in the peak of their winter season. So here in the United States, we began to embrace the concept.  Americans began capitalizing on the profits with sales and promotions. And then there is the early count down, six months, which has us all looking forward to all the Christmas fun.   Hallmark definitely plays a big part in all the anticipation with all the Christmas movies playing on their channels.

Celebration Fruit Salad Made With A Quick Homemade Strawberry Pie Filling

Celebration Fruit Salad, fresh pineapple chunks, fresh strawberry slices, and fresh blueberries tossed all together in a strawberry pie filling, homemade or canned.    Light and fresh...who says it can't be for dessert!   The night before any celebration we are having, I make Celebration Salad.  I like another quick fruit salad  I make from my childhood using canned fruit, but this is our favorite. I try to use fresh fruit as much as I can.  Especially now, while the strawberries, pineapple, and blueberries are in season.   We have some that are not a fan of bananas in this salad, so we leave them out but feel free to add them along with any other fresh fruit.  I think Kiwi and grapes would be another delicious addition or even peaches.   If you add peaches, a homemade peach pie filling is a great combination.
