Mason Jar Peach Cobbler

I made this over the weekend for our local Heritage Days Festival. It was a huge hit and I'm sure it will be with your bunch too! I adapted this recipe from Paula Deen-she's my hero!!!

2 cans sliced peaches drained
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups self rising flour
1 tsp cinnamon
8 tbs butter
1/1/2 cups milk

Preheat oven to 350. Drop 3/4 tsp of butter in 12 half pint mason jars. Place jars in a large casserole or broiler pan to help keep them stable. Place pan of jars in oven to melt butter. Cut drained peaches in large chunks and set aside. Mix dry ingredients with milk till smooth. Spoon 1/3 cup batter into each jar. Evenly divide any left over batter among the jars till all the batter is used. Spoon 1/4 cup of peaches on top of batter. Bake jars 25 minutes or until to>ps are slightly brown. Dust with cinnamon sugar mixture is desired. Carefully screw lids and seals on immediately after removing from oven for self sealing jars.
Makes approximately 12 half pint jar servings.
Sealed items can be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Jars can be kept for several days up to a week. Do not eat if item's color has changed or there are any visible signs of mold.

Tips and hints
Virtually anything can be baked and sealed in a jar. The trick is to fill the jar 1/3 of the way full for any rising breads or cakes to allow enough head room after baking. Quickly and carefully screw lids with seals onto the jars. As the sealed jar cools the lids will self seal. Remove the lids and seals to heat either in the microwave or oven. Serving food in a jar is perfect for picnics or family reunions.

  5. I absolutely fell in love with this blog! I've been canning for two years now and had never thought of baking stuff in jars! So excited to try this :) I started my own blog about a month ago trying to inspire my generation (twenty-somethings) to do more things from scratch, and just make the effort to know where their food comes from. I'd love to hear your opinions's since this blog is so amazingly written and informative. My blog is a little more light hearted as my audience are mostly newbies to the canning and 'making from scratch' rhelm. Hope you like it!

    1. These are 1/2 pint canning jars and can be found wherever canning supplies are sold.

  7. Does it have to say anywhere on the package made for heating? Or can you use any jars>

    1. Any canning quality jars are made to be heated. When you are canning they are either boiled or pressure sealed. You're welcome.
