Peach Cobbler

Since I made peach jam this past weekend I have a lot of peaches left.  I thought about making a pie, but a co-worker suggested a cobbler.  Can't argue there, I love cobbler.  I also love that I found this recipe, its a keeper for sure.  The crust is to die for! My mouth is watering just typing about it.

I know I've said it once already, but boy am I glad I live where there are some delicious peaches.  For this recipe you'll need about 8 medium sized peaches.

Peel, pit and thinly slice the peaches.

Add some sugar...

Brown sugar...

Cinnamon, Nutmeg...

Lemon juice


Mix until well combined.

Pour the peaches into a small oven proof casserole dish and bake for 10 minutes.

While that's baking, get another dish and add the flour, brown sugar, white sugar, baking powder, salt...

Cold butter that's been cut up for easier mixing.

Mix with a pastry blender or two forks until it looks like small pea sized pieces.  Add some boiling water until the dough comes together.

Top the peaches with the dough mixture, breaking it up and spreading it out as much as possible.  It's OK if you don't cover every single inch of the dish.

Sprinkle the top with the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.

Now put it back in the oven for about 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.  I was able to take mine out after about 25 minutes.

This is one of those dishes that you really need to let cool slightly before digging in or you'll get a serious mouth burn.  Some nice vanilla ice cream goes perfectly with this.
