Stone Fruit Macadamia Nut Cobbler

Recently, I started getting fresh, organic produce delivered to my door.  And milk.  And sometimes bread.  I pretty much don't have to go to the store anymore.  I didn't know how much I would really appreciate the home delivery aspect.  I originally signed up just to get a good selection of local produce without having to battle my way through the farmer's market every Saturday.
But now that I'm used to it, I don't know how I'll ever stop.  It also got me looking into what else I can get delivered to my door.  Did you know someone will bring you dog food?  And makeup?

Through searching the interwebs for services that would complement my laziness, I came across Oh Nuts!*  Not only do they deliver fresh, amazing quality nuts (and candy!) to your door, they are SO fast - probably faster than it would take for me to get up the motivation to drive to the store.

If you've never tried having food delivered, I encourage you to try out Oh Nuts!  They totally allow you to be lazy and they even kind of encourage it.  My kind of company.
And once you get your delivery, try not to eat them all at once (it's hard not to - just ask Austin!).  Instead, chop them up and put them on top of your fruit that you also have delivered to your house.  Next, maybe you can hire a personal chef and just tell them you want cobbler, now!

I made this cobbler with a variety of stone fruits (nectarines, peaches, plums, and pluots), because that's what I had (from my CSA box), but if you have any single type or a combination of stone fruits, just use what you have.

4 c. peaches or other stone fruit (peeled, sliced)
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. water
1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 c. butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 c. macadamia nuts, chopped

1.  In a medium saucepan, heat fruit, sugar and water up to a boil.  Reduce heat to a simmer and continue cooking for 5 minutes.  Pour into a 9x13" baking dish.

2.  Sprinkle cake mix (just the mix - do not prepare) on top of the fruit.

3.  Dot with butter.

4.  Sprinkle brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg over the top.  Then add macadamia nuts.

5.  Bake at 350˚ for 40-45 minutes.
