National Peach Cobbler Day

It’s not quite peach season, so I paid an ungodly amount ($2.99/lb.!!!) for peaches.  My peaches weren’t quite ripe and probably should have let them sit in a paper bag for another day, but Sunday is baking day since it’s really the only day where I have the luxury of time!  This is definitely worth another try when peach season is in full swing and I think next time I’ll add a little cinnamon to my peaches before baking them for the inital 10 minutes.

Peach Cobbler
From Gourmet

4 large peaches, cut into thin wedges
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup boiling water

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Toss peaches with sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch in a 2-qt. nonreactive baking dish and bake in middle of oven 10 minutes.
  3. Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Blend in butter with your fingertips or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in water until just combined.
  4. Remove peaches from oven and drop spoonfuls of topping over them. Bake in middle of oven until topping is golden, about 25 minutes. (Topping will spread as it bakes.)
