It's Peach Cobbler Time!

 There's nothing like a Georgia peach.

 And I happen to have a box full of them.

 The Hawthornelet-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named
brought us a box of Georgia peaches
when he came home from school.

 
And I think a peach cobbler is in order.

Peach Cobbler

4 cups sliced peaches (about 7 peaches)
1 cup sugar
1 TB lemon juice

Mix all together and let peaches sit for 30 minutes.
Drain off syrup and reserve
to heat and spoon over dessert
or for another use.
(Pancake syrup comes to mind.)

Heat oven to 350°.
Put a stick of unsalted butter in an 8-inch square pan
and place in the oven so the butter can melt.
Remove from oven and let cool slightly.

Sift:
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch salt

Add:
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup cream
1 TB vanilla
 Mix well to remove any lumps.
Pour batter over melted butter.  Do not stir.
Spoon peaches over batter.  Do not stir.

Place in oven and bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
Increase heat to 400° and bake 10-15 minutes more,
until golden brown.


There's nothing like fresh peaches.

Add the sugar.
Toss to coat.

Give it some lemon-lovin'.




Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

Add vanilla to milk and cream.

Pour into dry ingredients.

Whisk well to get out any lumps.

My baking dish with a stick of butter
has been heating in the oven.
When the butter melts ...
Pour the batter over top.
Do not stir.
Pour drained peaches over batter.
Do not stir.


Bake.



 I served a scoop of
 syrupy and cinnamony cobbler goodness
with Schwans Triple Lemon Yogurt.



 Outta my way, Mr. Hawthorne.


 Vanilla ice cream with hot peach cobbler.
Doesn't get much better than this.

Oh my. Too bad I can't reach my spoon in through my computer screen!

NMOAC and Mar, go make it. There will be no leftovers.

Anony, thanks. I'd read that link already and I'm still confused.
