peach cobbler

What a day, spent in the kitchen. It was a lovely one though. I made pancakes for breakfast (see previous entry)... then I made a peach cobbler, from scratch!!! Here is the recipe:

My Homemade Peach Cobbler : (will add photo soon)

Rich biscuit dough (recipe below)
6 c. fresh sliced peaches
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 1/4 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. water
3 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. cinnamon sugar mixture

Prepare biscuit dough using recipe.

RICH BISCUIT DOUGH:

2 c. flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 c. shortening
2/3 c. milk

Sift together dry ingredients, cut in shortening and add milk. Stir with a fork until a soft dough is formed. Turn out on a lightly floured surface. Knead about 30 seconds and roll about 1/4 inch thick.

Cobbler:

  1. Add lemon juice to peaches.
  2. Mix dry ingredients with water. Add peaches.
  3. Bring to a boil, stirring gently to keep juice smooth.
  4. Add vanilla extract.
  5. Spray pan and line sides of a casserole or baking pan with strips of rolled biscuit dough.
  6. Pour in 1/2 of peach mixture.
  7. Add more strips of dough and peaches in layers.
  8. Top with a layer of dough, dot with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Freezes very well.
