Tuesday Treats – BJ’s Southern Peach Cobbler

Well….hell. It’s Tuesday. I normally set up the blog the day before, setting it to go live about 4:00 a.m. my time. Yeah. About that…

I started yesterday. Really I did. I was researching cornmeal “crusts.” Because Lawyer Guy and I had the most fabulous dessert at BJ’s Brewhouse for his birthday. It was peach cobbler. With a cornmeal crust. Served warm. With three scoops of vanilla bean ice cream and sugared pecans.

Now, I’m born, bred, and raised in the South, y’all. I can tell you all about fried okra, with cornmeal breading. I can make cornbread from scratch and serve it with red beans. White beans. Beef stew. Hush puppies? (Little cornmeal slider thingies.) I’m all over those with fried (in cornmeal breading) catfish. But I’d never in my life heard of cornmeal pie crust or batter. How the hell had I not!??!??! Google it. It’s a real thing.

Y’all…I’m tellin’ you, it was like eating custard only with substance. With peaches. And ice cream.

If you have a BJ’s nearby. Give it a try. In the meantime, I plan to experiment to see if I can come anywhere close to approximating the batter/crust at home! If not, BJ’s isn’t that far away. 😀

  1. Oh man, that does sound yummy. We don’t have anything anywhere near here. We’re still trying to find a restaurant where the steak is trimmed well and cooked right, the burgers aren’t shoeleather and the bathrooms aren’t gross. ;o)

    Good luck replicating the recipe. I once had the most amazing dessert at a place called Mike Shannon’s in St. Louis – Caramel Apple Upside Down Pie. That was 22 years ago and I still drool over that dessert. I’ve never tried to make it – how did they get the apples sliced into perfect rectangles?!?! – but it lives on in my memory.

    I can’t remember what I did yesterday, but a great dessert can never be forgotten. ;o)

      I still remember some bread pudding I ate on my honeymoon. LOLOL So, yeah. A great dessert IS never forgotten. And if I can figure out how to make the darn thing, I’ll share for sure. 😀
