Every year I make a few peach cobblers. It has to be one of my favorite desserts of all time. My Grandma Letha could make some pretty incredible cobblers... peach always being my favorite. I can remember walking into her house and smelling a freshly baked cobbler... that would always put a smile on my face. Make it with fresh, juicy Georgia peaches and serve with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream... serving this with no ice cream is a SIN!! This particular recipe comes from AllRecipes.com... a website I often turn to for new recipes. Though July is the peak season for peaches, there are still a few good ones out there! Take advanage of them and throw'em in a cobbler.
Southern Peach Cobbler
8 fresh peaches - peeled, pitted and sliced into wedges
1/4 cup of white sugar
1/4 brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons corn starch
Batter for Cobbler
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/4 cup boiling water
3 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
2. In a large bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Toss to coat evenly and pour into a 2 quart baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in butter with your fingertips, or a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in boiling water until just combined.
4. Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of topping oven them. Sprinkle entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Bake until topping is golden... about 30 minutes.
5. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
