Cobbler Time

Cobbler Time!!

So I am not a huge cobbler fan but I found myself making it anyway!! So over vacation we were staying with some friends in Texas and I came by a Peach stand and bought a bunch of peaches. Well none of us were eating them and they were close to going bad so I thought what can I do with these things before they go bad…well since we were staying with Southerner’s I thought don’t they all love peach cobbler down here!! Lol!!

The hunt started for a good peach cobbler recipe that also wasn’t too difficult since this would be my first time, I was a cobbler virgin! I came across this recipe from All Recipes that got 4 ½ stars out of 5 from 1700 people pretty good odds this thing will be good! And it was called a Southern Cobbler, hello bingo!

I headed out to H-E-B, ( a supermarket chain out there) and while getting the ingredients I saw some Texas butter, Sugar and Brown sugar and thought well I am not familiar at all with these brands but since I am making a Southern cobbler couldn’t hurt to get em!! The butter I must say is DAMN good and holy shit that Brown sugar is THE darkest brown sugar I have seen the molasses was off the charts, although to be fair I have only seen C&H brown sugar!

There aren’t really a lot of ingredients which sometimes I have found the simplest recipes can be some of the best. This is what the cobbler looked like going into the oven and also what it looked like done. I forgot to get a picture once it was done so there are a few slices missing, everyone loved it and I think you will too!! Have fun!

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler (from All Recipes)

· 8 fresh peaches – peeled, pitted and sliced into thin wedges

· 1/4 cup white sugar

· 1/4 cup brown sugar

· 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

· 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

· 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

· 2 teaspoons cornstarch

· 1 cup all-purpose flour

· 1/4 cup white sugar

· 1 cup all-purpose flour

· 1/4 cup white sugar

· 1/4 cup brown sugar

· 1 teaspoon baking powder

· 1/2 teaspoon salt

· 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces

· 1/4 cup boiling water

MIX TOGETHER:

· 3 tablespoons white sugar (I did 6 tablespoons)

· 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon ( I did 2 teaspoons)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

In a large bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Toss to coat evenly, and pour into a 2 quart baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in butter with your fingertips, or a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in water until just combined.

Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of topping over them. Sprinkle entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Bake until topping is golden, about 30 minutes.

Happy Baking!!
