When you think of summer what do you think of? There is always something that will trigger a feeling or a memory. When I think of summer I think of watermelons, beach trips, and spending lots of time out doors with friends and family grilling.
I went to my boyfriend's parents house last weekend for dinner and had the most amazing peach cobbler I have ever tasted. It was one of those where if it was the last food you could eat this would be on the list. Peaches are one of those summer time fruits that can bring back those child hood memories. Here is a great recipe thanks to Paula Dean for a cobbler.
- 4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
- 2 cups sugar, divided
- 1/2 cup water
- 8 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- Ground cinnamon, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepanand mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt.
Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon, if using. Batter will rise to top during baking. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.
To serve, scoop onto a plate and serve with your choice ofwhipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
