This Tahini Peach Cobbler couldn’t be easier, more comforting, or more perfect for warm weather. It’s like the classic peach cobbler you grew up eating during the summertime, with an added bonus: tahini! Its savory nuttiness complements the sweet peaches beautifully, along with a touch of cinnamon and brown sugar for extra caramel-like sweetness and depth. The most delicious way to serve it is warm, of course, with a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!

This recipe was developed by Molly Krebs of Spices in My DNA for Soom.

 

Ingredients:

For the topping

  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup salted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup milk of choice
  • Coarse/raw sugar for topping, optional
  • Vanilla bean ice cream, for serving

For the filling

  • 5-6 large peaches, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp Soom Tahini
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Grease a medium baking dish with butter. Set aside. Begin by making the topping. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt until combined. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, both sugars, vanilla, and milk until smooth. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and mix with a rubber spatula until combined. Set aside.
  3. For the filling, add the peaches to a large bowl. Add the sugar, tahini, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt and stir to combine. Add peach mixture to the prepared baking dish. Spoon/dollop the topping evenly over the peaches. Sprinkle with a handful of coarse sugar if desired. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until peaches are bubbly and topping is golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes or so, then serve with vanilla bean ice cream.

 

Note: This recipe makes extra of the cobbler topping, depending on the size of your peaches and the vessel you’re baking in. If you use a smaller baking dish, you may only use ⅔ of the topping. If you use something larger, like a 9×13 baking dish, you may use all of the topping – just depends on the ratio you like! Any extra topping can be used to make mini individual cobblers or an additional smaller one.
