Peach Cobbler

I finally got around to making this awesome peach cobbler a few weeks ago and all the girls enjoyed it, even the ones that swore they did not like peaches ๐Ÿ™‚ I found this “Best Ever Southern Peach Cobbler” recipe at http://www.theslowroasteditalian.comย and it was true to the title!

Ingredients:

  • 8 fresh peaches-peeled, pitted and sliced into thin wedges
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

For Cobbler:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup boiling water

*3 tablespoons sugar to sprinkle on top of cobbler before baking

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees (425 if you are using a light colored pan)
  2. In a large bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Toss to coat evenly, and pour into a 2 quart baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour, sugars, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Blend in butter with a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  6. Stir in water until just combined.
  7. Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of topping over them.
  8. Sprinkle entire cobbler with 3 tablespoons of sugar.
  9. Set your baking dish on a baking sheet (this cobbler can drip into the oven otherwise).
  10. Bake until topping is golden, about 30 minutes.
  11. Serve with a large scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
