It's fresh peach season around here. A local family brings in a truckload of fresh peaches from somewhere and sells them in the parking lot of a local store. For a week or two, everyone trades peaches like they are currency, and gives away the surplus.
We got four velvety round globes from a friend. One for each of us. I cut into one today, in anticipation of the perfect peach, dripping with fruity goodness. It was a little on the unripe side. Oops. So I turned it (and one of its friends) into peach cobbler.
Here's the lowdown...
Slice the peaches and place them in a small casserole dish. Sprinkle them with sugar.
In a bowl, mix 1/2 c. flour, 2 T. sugar, 1/2 t. baking powder and a pinch of salt. Add 1 T. melted butter and 2 T. milk. Mix until sticky, but don't over mix. It will get tough and dense quickly. Spoon this mix over the peaches and bake at 350 degrees for around 45 minutes. It will get golden brown on top and bubble up through the holes in the dough. Then it is done. I like to serve it in a bowl with just a little milk poured on top.
