peach cobbler

Saturday evening my parents & brother stopped by on their way back from visiting my Papa's grave. Pop loved peaches, so I made this recipe for the first time in his honor. (Sidenote: can you believe mum found this cast iron piece for $2.50 & it wasn't even rusted? It just needed to be seasoned!)

Peach Cobbler, adapted from Epicurious

    • 6 large white peaches* cut into thin wedges
    • 1 Tbsp arrowroot powder
  • *yellow peaches are more tart & may require additional .25 cup sugar

(For biscuit topping)

  • 1 cup flour
  • .5 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • .5 tsp salt
  • .75 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • .25 cup boiling water
(Cook peaches)
  • Preheat oven to 425°F
  • Toss peaches with arrowroot powder in a 2-qt nonreactive baking dish & bake in middle of oven for 10 minutes.

(While peaches bake)
  • Stir together dry ingredients. Blend in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in water until just combined.
  • Remove peaches from oven & drop spoonfuls of topping over them. Bake in middle of oven until topping is golden, approx. 25 minutes. Topping will spread as it bakes.
