Ingredients

For the cobbler:

  • 1 stick butter melted
  • 4 cups sliced peaches
  • 2 cups sugar divided
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • Whipped cream or iced cream

Instructions

For the cobbler:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place butter in an 8 x 8 baking dish. Place butter in the oven and allow to melt, about 5-7 minutes.
  • In the meantime, combine peaches with one cup of sugar in a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, blend remaining sugar, flour, baking powder, milk, and salt. Pour mixture over the melted butter. DO NOT STIR!
  • Pour peaches over the flour.
  • Bake for 1 hour or until crust has risen to the top and is golden brown.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream

Notes

Store any leftovers in the refrigerator. Cover the top of the baking dish with plastic wrap or transfer the cobbler to a container fitted with a lid to prevent the cobbler from drying out. Cobbler should be eaten with five days. This dessert does not freeze.
