Peach Cobbler Recipe - Delicious

By Mike Sasaki

Cobblers are an American deep-dish fruit dessert or pie with a thick doughy and golden brown crust (usually a biscuit crust) and a fruit filling (such as peaches, apples, berries). Some versions are enclosed in the crust, while others have a drop-biscuit or crumb topping. Knowing how most things are invented, it wouldn't surprise me if some person had leftover peaches and biscuit dough and decided to just combine them with a little sugar. Nice, warm and golden brown out of the oven.

When peaches are in season they are so sweet and there is only one thing I think of making...Peach Cobbler. It's so delicious when fresh and warm right out of the oven. Most don't know about peach cobbler...sure, they've heard of peach pie, but I will take peach cobbler over peach pie every time. Peach cobbler is huge in the South where the peaches are the sweetest. I have yet to try peach cobbler in the South and I will one day soon. In the meantime, I'm going to have to settle for my homemade version of peach cobbler. Easy to make and so savory.

Ingredients: 3-4 Cups (fresh, sliced) Peaches, 1 Cup White Sugar, 1 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour, 1/2 Teaspoon Salt, 1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder, 2/3 Cup Butter, 1 (slightly beaten) Eggs.

Baking Directions:

1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

2. Place peaches in the bottom of a baking dish and sweeten with a little sugar depending on ripeness.

3. In medium mixing bowl, sift all dry ingredients. Cut in butter and add beaten egg. Mix until crumbly and sprinkle over fruit, covering all exposed fruit.

4. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden.

Take the peach cobbler out of the oven and allow it to rest for 10 minutes. Then, dig in and enjoy! Goes really well with a little whipped cream and vanilla ice cream. The combination of the warm peach cobbler with the cold ice cream is money! Pass this recipe along to all your friends.
