I’ve never created a recipe based on a movie before, so I wasn’t sure where to start! I really enjoyed the American Sniper movie, so I started brainstorming how I could make a recipe based on it.
The main character in the movie, Chris Kyle, is from Texas. I started researching desserts from Texas, and came across a peach cobbler. There were several variations, so I combined some of my favorite elements of each one to create this dessert.
This dessert ended up being closer to a peach crisp. A cobbler has pie crust on the bottom with biscuits on top, while a crisp just has a layer of crunchy topping.
This dessert is so easy to make! There are only a few easy ingredients, and you will have them mixed up and baking in minutes. I was surprised at how quickly I had it ready from start to finish. Perfect for quickly satisfying a dessert craving.
- 2 15.2 oz cans sliced peaches in heavy syrup
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Grease or butter a cast iron skillet. You can use whatever size you have, just know that the bigger it is, the thinner your crisp will be. I used two 6-inch skillets.
- Pour the peaches and syrup into the skillet on medium high.
- While you wait for the peaches to boil, mix the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt until crumbly.
- When the peaches get to a boil, sprinkle with topping. Place in the oven and baked for 15 minutes or until topping is browned.
- Enjoy with vanilla ice cream.
