Peach Cobbler

Peach CobblerMy dad is always traveling all over the tri-state area for work and when he comes home, he has bags full of delicious finds. He came home yesterday with a huge bag of peaches. I was surprised to see that the peaches were so ripe and sweet. The peaches were a bit on the hard side but that made them perfect for baking! My peach cobbler recipe was formed out of necessity, I wanted to make something with these gorgeous peaches and this sounded amazing. I tweaked the recipe a bit because we ran out of flour and didn’t have oats around to make a crumb topping, but this was delicious! Feel free to add a few slivers of almonds for added crunch!

Peach Filling
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of ground nutmeg
5 cups fresh peach slices
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

Topping
1/4 cup of milk
1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon baking powder
Pinch of salt

Directions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Melt butter in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish or in 2 9×9 dishes. Ensure that the entire pan is coated in butter to prevent the filling from sticking.

Combine together the peach filling ingredients and place in the baking dish(es.)

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients and slowly add the milk and vanilla extract in to incorporate all the ingredients together. Add the butter and roll into strips. Place the strips of dough on top of the filling,

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until golden brown.

Serve cobbler with vanilla ice-cream, whipped cream or just the way it is.
