Fresh Peach Cobbler With Biscuit Topping

Peach Cobbler was one of the first desserts I ever learned how to bake.  We’d make it a few times a week for my dad’s farm hands in the summer.  My mom would can lots of peaches, so we would use those, but I used fresh peaches here.  I also can’t find the original recipe for the topper, but this comes pretty close.  I think the main difference was that we used to use shortening.  I’d rather use butter though, more natural and the lesser of the two evils! Enjoy!

Fresh Peach Cobbler

12 peaches peeled and sliced
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon cornstarch

2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup cold butter
1/2 cup cold water

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Mix peaches, sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch.  Spread in a 9 x 13 pan or two casserole dishes.  Bake for 10 minutes.

In large bowl, sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Cut in butter.  Stir in cold water until combined. 

Drop by spoonfuls onto hot fruit.  Sprinkle with sugar. Bake 25 minutes.
