What Foods the Morsels be: Peach Cobbler

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 gobbling it down eating it for lunch right now.) Let me tell you something, she just may be right! I know everyone has their own tastes, but I honestly don't know how you couldn't love this dish! For me, it is pretty close to perfection. The vanilla and cinnamon flavors are delicious! There is just the right amount of sweetness. And as she claims, the topping does not get mushy and blend too much with the peach filling. I did not even feel the need to top it with ice-cream, and if you know about my love affair with ice-cream, you know that is saying something. I am sure it would be wonderful with ice-cream though. So please, do your taste buds a favor. Go get some fresh peaches and make this recipe!

Perfected Peach Cobbler
serves 6

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
pinch salt
1/2 cup white sugar
8 tbsp butter (one stick), cold, and cut into bits
1 egg
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.
