Old Fashioned Southern Peach Cobbler

Peaches ripening in a sunny window.

After a couple of days in a sunny window the peaches, saved from the beetles, were ripe and ready. I had enough to make a peach cobbler and a peach pie, plus some for the freezer. 

I love peach pies, crisps and cobblers, BUT with freshly ripened organic ones, this dessert is one of my favorites. Especially topped with vanilla ice cream.

2 tsp. sugar

1/4 tsp. baking powder

Pinch of salt

Pinch of cinnamon

Grease small casserole dish with butter. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Peel & cut up peaches. Mix peaches and lemon juice. Mix cornstarch, brown sugar and cinnamon with peaches and put peaches into greased casserole dish.

 In another bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt. cinnamon and nutmeg. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Add the cream and toss with flour mixture just until the dough is combined.

 Turn the dough out onto a flour surface and knead a few times to smooth it. Then roll it out into the shape of the casserole dish. Place the dough over the filling and sprinkle with 1/4 tsp. of sugar. Bake until the top is golden and the juices are bubbling. 25 to 30 minutes.

    It is a reduced quantity recipe which is better for DH and I. Cause if I make more, we will eat more. Thanks for visiting again supermom! Good to see you.

    SteamyKitchen,

    I think anything homegrown tastes best.

    Thank you and Supermom for stopping by.

    So you are making good use of the “saved” peaches. I’m so sorry about your beetles troubles. What a waste!

    I figured you’d think of good things to do with your sudden bounty. I’m going to try your peach pie, although it’ll be a month or so before I can get a peach that doesn’t come in a crate from the South….

    Hi Annie,

    I am glad we got some of the peaches, too. I really hate those beetles.

    Let me know how your pie comes out.

    Thank you so much for a wonderful recipe.

    I have been married 18 years to my wonderful husband and he said I have finally found the peach cobbler recipe that he loves.

    You made our evening. : )
