I have never liked cobbler-of any kind.
- 3-4 cups of sliced peaches
- 2 cups of sugar
- 1 stick of butter (oh yeah!)
- 3/4 C flour
- 2 t. baking powder
- 1/4 t. salt
- 3/4 C. milk
Mix peaches with 1/2 of sugar (this is the step I missed!). Let sit.
Melt the butter in a 13 x 9 in. pan. Meanwhile, combine sugar, flour, baking powder, milk and salt. (I used all 2 cups of sugar here which probably explains the cookie-like texture)
Pour batter over melted butter--do not stir. Spoon peaches on top (I used peaches that I had frozen last summer--the whole reason for making this was to use up those peaches)
Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour--put a cookie sheet under it for goodness sakes--mine poofed up and looked like a pan full of bubbles-then it relaxed, fell and started to brown. You may need more time. I cooked mine until it was nice and browned on top.
Serve with vanilla ice cream, of course! And use a spoon so that you don't miss any of that juice!
Go in peace!
