While I love just eating these fresh, I also love peach cobbler. I know I wanted to use some of these southern jewels for just that! I turned to The Pioneer Woman's Tasty Kitchen website, which is the best thing since sliced bread. Seriously, I feel like almost every recipe posted by members of Tasty Kitchen is posted by someone that recognizes a GOOD recipe when they see one! I found this recipe: Peach Cobbler One of the comments said that this recipe is very similar to one of Paula Dean's recipes, which wouldn't surprise me a bit! Paula Dean is known for her love of all things butter! This recipe was very easy, though I modified it a bit. First of all, I halved the recipe because Caleb had informed me before that he does not like peach cobbler, so I didn't want to end up with enough for a month! I also left out the almond extract (I didn't have any).
Here is the recipe, cut down to 4 servings, minus the extract.
1/2 stick (4 Tablespoons) Butter (I used salted)
3/4 cup All-purpose Flour
3/4 cup Sugar
1 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoons Salt
3/4 cup Milk
1 pounds Peaches, Peeled And Sliced (about 2 Cups)
Adjust oven rack to lower middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Put butter in a 9 by 9-inch baking pan; set in the oven to melt.
Meanwhile, whisk flour, 3/4 cups of sugar, baking powder, and salt in small bowl.
Whisk in milk until smooth.
Pour batter into pan.
Arrange fruit over batter.
Bake until batter turns golden brown, 35-45 minutes.
