Peach Cobbler


3 lb. vine ripe peaches
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon butter, softened
1 large egg

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. 
2. Grease a 2 quart baking dish. 
3. Peel and slice peaches. 
4. Place in baking dish. 
5. Stir in lemon juice. 
6. In saucepan, stir together brown sugar and cornstarch. 
7. Add water, stir until cornstarch is dissolved. 
8. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens--about 5 minutes. 
9. Pour sauce over peaches in baking dish. Set aside.
10. Reserve 1 teaspoon white sugar. 

For topping: 

1. Stir remaining sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. 
2. Stir in butter and egg until a soft dough forms. 
3. Drop spoonfuls onto peaches. 
4. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar. 
5. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until topping is golden brown and peach mixture is bubbling.
6.  Cool slightly on wire rack. 
7. Serve with unsweetened cream.

Peach Cobbler is ideal since it encompasses the flavors of peach pie without all the work. I personally love peach cobbler especially served warm with vanilla ice cream melting over the top.
