Peach cobbler

Peach cobbler has a short-cake pastry half-double crust, but the filling is mostly composed of peaches, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, vanilla flavor, allspice, brown sugar, water, and salt.

Cobbler

What could be a more perfect ending to a summertime meal than easy peach cobbler? Savor the flavors of summer with sliced fresh peaches cooking away with butter and spices. The topping can made from pantry ingredients you have on hand and peaches can easily be substituted with any fruit you have depending on the time of year. The tang of the lemon juice paired with the sweetness of the peaches is perfectly balanced with the crisp topping.

Want to make dessert even better? A dollop of fresh whipped cream or cold vanilla ice cream truly makes it the perfect way to end a summer night. (Source: www.myrecipes.com www.myrecipes.com))Bake at 375° for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm or cool.

This is a very good recipe in it's execution although I modify it quite a bit. I use a lot of peaches and like to use really sweet ripe peaches. First modification, cut the sugar back to 1/3 cup with the peaches and then add a half cup of Bourbon. The Peaches will have a wonderful boozy taste going in but the alcohol will evaporate out during baking. Trust me on this, I have been baking Peach pies for years with Bourbon. The Bourbon will be there when it is done, but it will be subtle and delicious. As I do use a lot of Peaches and tend to make a very big Cobbler when I do this, I also do the cake portion of this recipe X 1.5 with the following changes. I use only a half cup of Sugar for the cake, even with the other ingredients increased by 50%. Since I am using 1.5 cups of flour then, I use 1 cup all purpose and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. I have found that the whole wheat flour gives a little sturdier cake against all the ripe Peaches and also yields a beautiful brown color on baking. I also substitute half n half for the milk in the recipe. I have found that one stick of butter (half cup) is fine even when making a large Cobbler. The Peaches seem to hold their color better if you leave some of the peels on. I don't recommend leaving the Peaches entirely unpeeled as I tried this once and the skins were just tough enough that you could not cleanly cut the Cobbler by jamming the edge of a metal spatula down into it which was kind of unappealing. The trick is just to leave your Peaches mottled if you will.
