Peach Treat

My plan was to eat one of these wonderful freestone peaches every other day, but they ripened quickly so I adjusted that plan! So easy to peel* and take out the pit... then slice and get ready for this good kitchen accomplishment. No whipped cream nor ice cream on hand but warm cobbler is absolutely wonderful alone.


Granny's Cobbler

1/2 C. butter (one stick)
1 C. milk
1 C. sugar...
1 C. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
Dash of salt

1/8 C. lemon juice over peaches
1 qt. (4 cups) fruit, sweetened (peaches, cherries, blackberries, etc.)cinnamon and/or nutmeg to taste

Melt butter in a 9" by 13" baking dish. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and milk. Pour batter in dish on top of butter; cover with fruit. Do not stir; batter will rise to top as it bakes and absorb the flavor of the fruit. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream. So easy!

If using canned fruit, drain fruit. If using fresh fruit, sweeten with a bit of sugar to desired sweetness.

* easy to peel by dunking into very hot water for a couple of minutes. I do this as I go - one at a time.
