      Thanks Magie! I usually have vanilla and cinnamon. I'm gathering new ideas for a new recipe and i'll definitely note cardamom and ginger. :)

      1. re: magiesmom

        +1 cardamom
        i generally garnish with caramel powder, and often do a layer of frangipan under the fruit

        1. re: magiesmom

          +1 for the cardamom

          Blueberries work well, too.

          1. re: rockycat

            I thought of blueberry before as well but never really tried them. It's in my list of to-do definitely. Thanks rockycat!

        2. I'm sure someone will say bacon! The cardamom and ginger sounds great, or bourbon, but you could also mimic peach melba with raspberries.

            ohh raspberries! I'll take note that....thanks katecm!

          2. Sneak in some apricots.

            1. I am a fan of this recipe. It's a combo cinnamon roll/peach cobbler. I've made it even more decadent by adding a smear of cream cheese frosting.

                I'm used to having cinnamon and vanilla but i think your cream cheese frosting will give my usual peach cobbler a twist. Thanks for the link as well!:)

                  The "twist" is in the recipe's preparation, and not so much the common ingredients. Enjoy!

              2. I found a skillet peach cobbler that asked for peach jam to be spooned over before baking (it was almost like an upside down cake) and all I had was a jar of pear and ginger jam. So good, I will always add ginger now in some form.

                This is the recipe, definitely a little different

                  That sounds really good. Do you think the sugar could be cut a little in light of the jam?

                  1. re: magiesmom

                    Possibly, it's similar to cake so you could do the same as you would there. Mine did burn around the edges a bit, so maybe less sugar would help there too.
