My favorite way to eat peaches would be in cobbler.
I have made several different cobblers before, and some peach desserts I made recently would be the Peach Cobbler Cake and the Peachy Cream Bars which were both mighty tasty. But, they were missing something.
They weren't like I wanted it to be. Although, I don't really know what I wanted it to be.
I came across a peach cobbler recipe over at thefoodhussy.com and I had a feeling that *this* would be the peach cobbler recipe of my dreams.
The way the boiling water creates a sugar crust on top is absolutely wonderful.
I use fresh peaches, because they are in season and super cheap...and nothing beats a fresh peach.
If you haven't made anything with fresh ones before, be sure to check out my post on how to peel a peach easily. It saves you so much hassle!
And, I cannot lie. I was eating it with a spoon while it was cooling after coming out of the oven.
It was delicious.
The hubs even agreed.
We ended up eating half of the cobbler with a spoon.
From the baking dish.
Before it cooled.
The Best Peach Cobbler
4 cups peaches, sliced
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup boiling water
Preheat oven to 375.
Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray.
Place peaches evenly in the dish.
In a mixing bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup sugar and butter.
Add the salt, flour, baking powder, and milk.
Spread as evenly as you can over the peaches.
In a small bowl mix the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and cornstarch.
Sprinkle evenly over the batter.
Pour the boiling water over the sugar top so it is all moistened.
Do not mix.
Bake for 45 minutes.
Let cool until desired warmth before serving.
