Author Notes

This recipe has been adapted from the Flame Peach Cobbler on the Emile Henry website, to fit a baking dish that can fit 3.5-quarts. This dish is rustic in flavor, with major farmhouse vibes, like the best parts of a bread pudding, a peach pie, and a buttery biscuit, all rolled into one. —Posie (Harwood) Brien

In This Recipe

  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract and beat to mix well.

I like warm homemade bread slathered with fresh raw milk butter, ice cream in all seasons, the smell of garlic in olive oil, and sugar snap peas fresh off the vine.
