Don’t let the moment pass you by! We’re in the heart of peach season. And the Pennsylvania peaches coming in the door right now are sweet, juicy, and flavorful.
Here’s our favorite peach cobbler recipe.
6 large peaches, peeled and cut into thin wedges
¼ cup of sugar
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 cup flour
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
6 Tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
¼ cup of boiling water
What to Do
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Toss peaches with ¼ cup of sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch. Spoon into a non-reactive pan (ceramic, glass or stainless steel). Bake in oven for 10 minutes.
While peaches are baking, mix together flour, ½ cup of sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend butter into flour mixture with fingertips or a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir water into flour & butter mixture until combined. Remove peaches from oven after 10 minutes & drop spoonfuls of flour mixture over peaches. Topping will spread as cobbler bakes. Bake in oven until topping is golden (approximately 25 minutes).
