Peaches are marvelous right now so I bought a case at Costco and made a simply delicious peach cobbler I wanted to share with you.
This recipe can adapt to make other berry and fruit cobblers depending on what is available locally and fresh.
Heck you can even improvise and use canned fruit or berries… just drain the liquid or in a pinch – use readymade pie filling and delete the 1 cup of sugar that is called for in the saucepan seeing as pie filling already has the sugar added – you would just bring pie filling up to a boil and pour that over the cobbler batter in the casserole dish.
Be sure to follow the directions in the order listed. You will be pleasantly suprised to see the cobble batter rise to the top of the casserole dish as the cobbler bakes and turns a nice golden brown.
4 oz unsalted butter
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
