It' Summer Peach Cobbler Y'ALL!
I love summer and everything that is Summer. Two of my favorite things are summer road trips and peaches. Whenever Gene and I travel in the southeast I can't pass a Farmers Market without stopping. There is nothing like bringing home a bushel of fresh picked peaches - it's a treasure! Once, we were traveling in Virginia and it was early in the season. We stopped at a huge Farmers Market to explore. I was a little surprised to find peaches that early, but, excited to get some. These peaches were in a beautiful wooden baskets, just right to take home. The lady at the check out warned me that although the peaches were delicious, they were not free stone. I replied that it really did not matter, I wanted those peaches. After returning home, and attempting to process these peaches, I realized my mistake. Free stone peaches are much easier to remove from the pit. So, I learned a valuable lesson; when buying a bushel of peaches make sure they are Free Stone! LOL I keep that pretty basket hanging in my kitchen as a reminder. Anyway, this is the perfect summer peach cobbler for a perfect summer day.
Summer Peach Cobbler
3 cups of fresh peaches in a light syrup (slice peach and make a light syrup by mixing equal parts of water and sugar.)
one stick of butter, one cup of sugar, one cup of self-rising flour, one teaspoon of cinnamon, one cup of milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a medium sauce pan heat the peaches in the light syrup.
In a mixing bowl combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, and then stir in the milk to make the batter.
Place one stick of butter in a 9 x 13 baking dish, set the dish in the over so the butter will melt as the oven is heating. When the oven reaches 350 degrees remove the dish to the stove top.
Pour the batter mixture over the melted butter, spoon the heated peaches evenly over the batter and pour in remaining liquid.
Place in the oven and bake 30 minutes or
until golden brown.
Serve with Ice cream, whip cream or just on its own.
* if you have frozen peaches in light syrup they work wonderfully and you can have summer peach cobbler in the winter.. ENJOY
