PEACH COBBLER

Every summer our local farm bureau (of which I am a proud member) offers the opportunity to purchase fresh blueberries and peaches.  The blueberries were amazing and I put quite a few in the freezer.  The peaches were perfect:  large, firm, and juicy.  Here is the recipe for a delicious peach cobbler.

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

¼ cup white sugar

¼ cup brown sugar

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons cornstarch

Topping

1 cup all-purpose flour

¼ cup white sugar

¼ cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1 stick unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces

¼ cup boiling water

Mix Together:

3 tablespoons white sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine peaches, ¼ cup white sugar, ¼ cup brown sugar, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and 2 teaspoons cornstarch.  Toss to coat evenly and pour into a 9X13-inch or 2 quart baking dish.  Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, ¼ cup white sugar, ¼ cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder, and ½ teaspoon salt.  Blend in butter with your fingers, or a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Stir in ¼ cup boiling water until just combined.

Remove peaches from oven, and spread topping over them.  Sprinkle entire cobble with the sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Bake until topping is golden, about 30 minutes.

Serve warm topped with vanilla ice cream.  Delicious!!!

The flower cart continues to amazing and inspire me.  Here are some of the selections available today.  Fall is quickly approaching.  Along with the lovely flowers, we will have pumpkins ready this weekend!!!

Until next time,
