Peach Cobbler

Mollie asked about the cobbler. I may have posted it way back when but that's okay. Here it is, more or less from scratch. It says fresh peaches but canned work fine and probably so will frozen.

Anybody with allergies can probably adapt it. We're lucky - we can eat just about anything and usually do.

It will work for berries too. It's easy.

It will also work fine with Bisquick or any other biscuit mix (or even self rising flour).

All depends on how much work you want to put into it.

Grandma's Peach Cobbler

* 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
* 1 cup flour
* 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup sugar
* 1 cup milk
* 3 cups peeled and sliced fresh peaches, with their juices (or large can)

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Put the butter in a 9x13-inch Pyrex baking dish and put the dish in
the preheating oven. While the butter is melting, mix up the batter by
combining the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and milk.

When the butter is completely melted, remove the pan and pour the
batter into the melted butter. Then, carefully spoon the peaches and
juice evenly over the batter. Return dish to the oven and bake for 30
minutes. (Carefully? Obviously they haven't made my acquaintance - important thing is DO NOT STIR)

As the cobbler cooks, the batter will rise up and around the peaches.
Makes 10 to 12 servings.

They say Pyrex but any 9 x 13 pan (standard cake pan) will work and so will a cast iron skillet.

Sounds granny used to make a mean peach cobbler. Sadly, she suffers from alzheimers now, and no longer remembers how to make it. :(
Nobody else comes close to it, either.

Alright Granny, we need to talk. Are your syndication feeds disabled, or is Blogger being ornery with your blog? Can you check to see that the feeds are enabled?

Hi Ann I am behind in my comments, but want to thank you for link to "The Red Hat Society", your right it would be fun to start a chapter, have to talk to Merle about it.
Love the sound of the peach cobbler, I would rather eat dessert than main course, so will definately have to try it.

I call this one wacky pie! I haven't had it in a while and think I will make it for me and the kids today and I have never had it with canned peaches or fresh fruit, just with some kind of pie filling (from a can. Thanks for the inspiration.
Have really enjoyed the pictures of kids and cats that you have posted recently!

I'm more of a crumbly top crisp type person, but I do love me some peach pie in the summer when they're cheap at the farmers market. Mmmm. Thanks for the recipe.
