As I said in my last post, we had a peck of peaches. With the humidity we have had lately I knew that these babies would quickly turn from ripe to rotten so I scoured pinterest for some yummy peach recipes. I stumbled upon this recipe for Peach Cobbler from One Hungry Mama. She claims to have created the perfect recipe for Peach Cobbler. With a claim like that I had to try it! (In fact I may or may not be
Perfected Peach Cobbler
6 cups peaches, 1/1 1/2 inch slices, peeled and pitted
1/4 cup packed brown sugar, plus another 1/8 cup
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp corn starch
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup white sugar
8 tbsp butter (one stick), cold, and cut into bits
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1.) Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss peaches with 1/4 cup brown sugar, cinnamon, and corn starch. Spread in lightly buttered 9 inch pan.
2.)Pulse remaining 1/8 cup brown sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and white sugar in food processor once or twice. Add butter and process until dough comes together. Put dough in bowl and mix in egg and vanilla by hand.
3.)Drop spoonfuls of dough across the fruit. Do not spread it around. Bake until the dough turns golden brown, about 45 minutes.
Note: The easiest way to peel peaches without waste is to submerge them whole into boiling water for a minute or two. Plunge them into cold water immediately after taking them out of the boiling water. Leave for 30 seconds or so, after which the skin should just peel right off.
