Peach & Strawberry Cobbler

February 17, 2011

I haven't been able to set up a nice place to take photos of food while I'm at home in California, which is why I haven't been posting recipes. But you shouldn't live without this cobbler so I used the trusty ol' iPhin to give you this Peach Cobbler.


6 large peaches, wedged
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon corn starch

1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 stick butter, cold & cubed
1/4 cup boiling water

Preheat the oven to 425˚

Toss the peaches, 1/4 cup sugar, lemon juice and corn starch in a pie dish or whatever you're serving the cobbler in. There's no need to dirty up a mixing bowl for this. Put it in the oven for 10 minutes.

Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Add the cold, cubed butter and press them suckers between your fingertips until you get a sandy mixture. You need to work quickly and it should only take you a couple minutes. It should look and feel like wet sand. Then, add the boiling water and give it a quick mix with your spoon.

Spoon the mixture on top of your fruit. It won't spread well and should just be dollopped over. Bake it for about 35 minutes or until it's golden brown on top. Serve a la mode!

Tammy's notes: I actually made a Strawberry-Peach Cobbler, only because I had fresh strawberries and a random can of canned peaches, which worked fine. You can really use any sort of fruit, but peaches works best with this topping.
