Since I grew up for most of my life in Brigham City, Utah, I of course love peaches. August and September are the best months of the year. Eating the BEST fresh peaches every day makes me happy. I never get sick of eating them. I think they are the fruit of heaven. Cobbler is a very easy was to make a simple, delicious dessert. And if you top cobbler with my homemade vanilla ice cream (click Homemade Raspberry Ice Cream -just omit the raspberries), you won’t be disappointed!
1 1/2 C flour
1 C sugar (or slightly less)
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
8-10 fresh peaches, sliced
1 1/4 sticks cold butter-start with 1 stick
Preheat oven to 350º.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Wash peaches, peel skin off, and slice. Place into an ungreased 9×13 glass dish.
Sprinkle dry ingredients on top.
Thinly slice the cold butter and place on top trying to have little squares over most of the top. If you need more than one stick, go ahead a slice more butter. I try to space it out-sorry I forgot to take a picture of that! Then about 15 minutes before the cobbler is done, I peek in the oven and see if I need to add a couple more slices to ensure all the dry ingredients are not dry still, but deliciously moistened with butter!
Bake in the oven at 350º for one hour. Sometimes you’ll need 10 more minutes to get the right browning.
I can’t think of anything I love to eat more than peach cobbler! Especially for breakfast!
I hope that you will have a wonderful weekend! And if you have peaches and need a cobbler recipe, I hope you’ll give this one a shot!
Life is Good. Share the Good.
