Peach Cobbler - So Easy!
A cobbler can mean just about anything depending on who you talk to and what part of the country they are from. Go to the grocery store and buy a cobbler and it will be simply a square pie. I like a fluffy cobbler with plenty of dough to eat with the gravy that will be formed under it. A cobbler should never be confused with a crisp or a crumble. Which, by the way are awesome too, just not the same thing.
I have cut this recipe in half to make an 8" square size cobbler. Doubling the recipe will make a 9x13" pan.
1 15 oz can sliced peaches - Do not drain.
1 Tablespoon melted butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 Tablespoon corn starch
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt (they actually measuring spoons for pinch, dash and tish)
1/4 cup butter
In another bowl, combine milk, sugar, flour, baking powder and salt. Beat until smooth - mixture will be thin.
Melt 1/4 cup butter in 8" baking dish.
Pour batter over melted butter.
Spoon peaches over batter. Really. Juice and all. Don't pour it, just lay it carefully on batter.
Bake at 350F for 1 hour until knife inserted in center comes out clean. I think a scoop of New York Vanilla ice cream on top would be perfect.
