Who doesn’t like Peach Cobbler??? And I know that everyone and their brother has a recipe for it in their cook books. This one is a little different as it has a syrup you pour over the top with 10 minutes left in baking. So why not give it a shot and let us know how it goes? (I’m fairly sure this isn’t in my Weight Watchers plan). I’d be tempted to try this with the super yummy white peaches that I’ve been getting from Wegmans lately. Or the Hale Havens when they are available from the lake shore. Have I mentioned I love peaches?
1 cup flour
¼ tsp. salt
¼ cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 round tablespoon butter
6 halves canned peaches (Why not fresh?)
1 tsp. baking powder
Preheat oven to 450F. Sift flour, and then sift again with baking powder and salt. Cut butter into flour mixture with fork and add milk. Turn on to floured board, knead lightly, pat down to about a third of an inch thick, cut in center. Place peaches in a casserole, sprinkle with 1/3 cup sugar and place the dough on top of the peaches. Bake for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, boil ¼ cup sugar and ¼ cup water 4 minutes and add ¼ tsp. vanilla. When the cobbler has baked 20 minutes, pour syrup over top and bake 10 minutes more. Serve warm with cream or with milk and sugar.
