Fresh Peach Cobbler

You probably have several versions of Peach Cobbler recipes.  Here is a new one I just tried.

Fresh Peach Cobbler

1/2 C. sugar
1 T. cornstarch
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
4 C. sliced fresh peaches
1 tsp. lemon juice
3 T. shortening or Crisco
1 C. flour
1 T. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 C. milk

Cool Whip or whipping cream, if you desire

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, & cinnamon in a 2 qt. saucepan.  Stir in peaches and lemon juice.  Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils.  Boil and stir for 1 minute.  Pour into an ungreased 2 qt. casserole.

Cut shortening into flour, 1 T. sugar, baking powder & salt in a bowl like you would for a pie crust - until mixture looks like fine crumbs.  Stir in milk.

Drop by spoonfuls onto peach mixture.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until topping is golden brown. 

Serve either warm or cool.  If you desire you can serve with a whipping cream or ice cream.

Note - Mr. Cardigan thought that it needed more peaches.  Next time I am going to add 1-2 cups more of peaches, but keep all the other ingredients the same.  I think there is enough liquid as the peaches contribute to the liquid, too.

Very tasty and the kitchen smelled so good while it was baking - peaches and cinnamon are a great combo!!

Here is a photo of the peaches when it was just at the beginning stage of cooking -

I think Lucy thought that it was 'picture taking' time as she sat on one of our dining room chairs all ready for her close-up!!!!
