Southern Peach Cobbler

This is a little high on my personal carb chart so I have to move things around in order to make it work. But, oooohhhh, it's worth it.

Also, the recipe calls for 8 peaches. I've never, ever used 8, I use more. I pack those peaches in that pan until I'm convinced it will bubble over. It hasn't yet so I feel like I've failed. ;)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 8 fresh Georgia peaches - peeled, pitting and sliced into wedges
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

TOPPING INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup boiling water

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
  2. In a large bowl, combine peaches, 1/2 cup light brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and cornstarch. Toss to coat evenly and pour into a 9 x 13 baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour, 1/2 cup light brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend in butter with your fingertips until mixture is combined. Stir in hot water until just combined
  4. Remove peaches from oven and drop topping mixture by spoonfuls over the peaches.
  5. Mix together 3 tablespoons white sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle over cobbler. Bake for approximately 30 minutes, until topping is golden brown
