Over the weekend I decided that it had been way too long since the last time I made a peach cobbler, so I pulled out one of my favorite Betty Crocker cookbook recipes and got to work!
- 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons butter (softened)
- 4 cups sliced peaches (about 6 medium)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut an X into the bottom of each peach and blanch in boiling water until the skin starts to peel. Let the peaches cool before peeling completely and slicing them.
Mix 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon in a pot. Stir in the peaches and lemon juice. Cook stirring constantly until it thickens and boils. Boil and stir for one minute. Pour into ungreased 2 qt. casserole dish and keep the mixture hot in the oven.
Mix butter and flour. Add 1 tablespoon sugar, baking powder, and salt until it resembles fine crumbs.
Add the milk.
Drop dough onto the hot peaches. Bake until golden brown (25-30 minutes).
