Peach Cobbler

I was excited to participate in the WC Recipe exchange, I got this recipe. Although I was VERY excited to make it I realized that peaches are VERY out of season in Minnesota right now, so I ended up using frozen peaches. I also don't like peachs so I want to try this again but want to try with fresh fruit.

Thank you to whom ever submitted this recipe :)

Although I didn't try this, Adam really enjoyed it. I really like that it has a "cake" layer on the top.

Southern Peach Cobbler (From: Allrecipes)
  • 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
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Toss to coat evenly, and pour into a 2 quart baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in butter with your fingertips, or a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in water until just combined. Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of topping over them. Sprinkle entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Bake until topping is golden, about 30 minutes. Tip on how to easily peel peaches: Place the peaches in boiling water for about 60 seconds, remove and plunge into cold water.

The skins should slip right off.
