No Bake Peach Cobbler Cakes, Mother's Day Desserts



With the Mother's Day holiday coming up, every second saved counts.  These no bake peach cobbler cakes are a good way to save time, not taste. I came up with this recipe last week when I saw some dessert cups on sale.  I walked past some peaches and a recipe idea was conceived.  
All the components of a comforting peach cobbler will be at your fingertips, and this easier version is  just perfect for portion control and also uniformity.  No more worrying about who 'stole' all the crust from the cobbler or who hogged all the fruit! These cakes serve themselves and may be assembled ahead of time, minus the reduced syrup and whipped cream or topping.  You may also make a grand entrance if you will ,by assembling the cups on a large platter with the peaches already in place, then pour the warm sauce over the whole shebang and garnish with as little or as much of the whipped cream as desired by the "dessertee " or person consuming the dessert (yeah, I made this word up)!
For a boozy and slightly upscale version, consider using a splash of Twenty Grand Black, Vodka infused with Cognac , simmered in with sauce, followed by a pat of butter, for a bold and rich flavor. Also, for this version, you can make the whipped cream from scratch, but if your schedule is like mine for this weekend, "Ain't nobody got time for that!," so you can stick with the version below and save the boozy one for another intimate occasion.

Recipe:
12 dessert cups
1 29 oz. can peach halves, in syrup
1 tsp. Madagascar vanilla bean paste, or pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon, plus more for garnish
pinch of kosher salt, optional
8 oz. container whipped topping or can version

Instructions:
In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, pour syrup from can.
Slice the peach halves evenly and add to syrup.
Add vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt.
Bring up to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low.
Simmer peaches in syrup until reduced slightly and thickened, about 10 minutes.
Arrange dessert cups on a large platter and place equal portions of the peaches in the cups.
Allow the sauce to cool for several minutes to thicken further.
Drizzle the peach cups with the syrup.
Garnish with whipped topping and dust with cinnamon.
Serve immediately for best results.
Makes 12 servings.
