Peach Cobbler

Peach cobbler! So I have never had peach cobbler, never made it, and... I think the last time I had a peach was in 5th grade. Anyways this was another instant my boyfriend and I were cooking for several people so we decided to go for it since they are in season. It is quite tasty and the crust is amazing!

Since we were cooking for so many people, we made a large batch of this cobbler and I discovered what happens when you over fill your mixer...

...oops. Flour everywhere! Oh well. On to the recipe. Note we made a few large batches, so the pictures show more than the recipe posted.

8 fresh peaches - peeled, pitted and sliced into thin wedges
1/4 c. white sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. cornstarch

1 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. white sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
6 Tbsp. unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/4 c. boiling water

Crust Topping
3 Tbsp. white sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
2. In a large bowl/pan, combine peaches, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Toss to coat evenly, and pour into a 2 quart baking dish. 

3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour, white sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. 

5. Stir in water until just combined. 

6. Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of the crust over them. 

 7. Sprinkle entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon mixture. 

8. Bake until crust is golden, about 30 minutes. 

9. Stuff face!
