Peach Cobbler

(Oops I did it again — a week off from writing. It has been so nonstop busy with more airplane rides than one can count, so I just stopped writing. But here I am, BACK AGAIN!)…..One of my favorite things to do in summers in Oregon is to pick local fruit and to bake. This past week, the fruit of the week was PEACH! So we headed to pick peaches — it is currently the start of the season, but nonetheless, we had two different varieties to pick from, and they were both oh so delicious.


We ate so many peaches while picking them — how could you not? First, it was to try to figure out the ripeness based on how they felt, and then, they were too good not to eat them.

Tusia’s contribution was eating them.

We picked 18 pounds (for $35).



For the inside:

* 8 fresh peaches – peeled, pitted and sliced into thin wedges

* ¼ cup white sugar

* ¼ cup brown sugar

* ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

* ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg

* 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

* 2 teaspoons cornstarch


For the dough:

* 1 cup all-purpose flour

* ¼ cup white sugar

* ¼ cup brown sugar

* 1 teaspoon baking powder

* ½ teaspoon salt

* 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces

* ¼ cup boiling water


For the topping:

* 3 tablespoons white sugar

* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon




* Preheat the oven to 425 degrees


* Peel and slice the 8 peaches, and then combine them in a bowl with the white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, and cornstarch in a large bowl; toss to coat evenly, and pour into a 2-quart baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.


* In a different bowl, combine all the dough dry ingredients. Blend in the butter, and then add the water until just combined.


* Remove the peaches from the oven and put dollups of the dough on top. Sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar.


Pre baking.


* Bake for 30 minutes or until golden.

Post baking.

In a bowl with ice cream and mint.


So delicious — I loved every bite. I recommend using a little less sugar if you want it less sweet. I didn’t mind it sweet, but my (cough cough) family thought it was too sweet……nothing better than peach cobbler in summer!
