AWESOME Peach Cobbler!!! This Recipe has Been Tested and Approved Over and Over!!! The Best Peach Cobbler I've Ever Tasted... My Mom gave me this Recipe it came from a Local Newspaper Clipping..I Doubled it and added a few different touches it is Great for Family Gatherings!!!..
To Make the Crust:In a Bowl , Whisk together the flour and salt.Add the shortening and Frozen butter,I use a paring knife and slice the Butter over the ingredients.Then Use a Pastry blender until the mixture forms pea size clumps,Slowly add 1/2 cup of Ice cold water,mixing until the dough forms together Do Not Over Mix.I then Roll the dough into a ball and wrap with Parchment paper,Then I place in the Freezer to Chill for 20min You Need to Make 3 Bacthes of this dough two for the top and half of one for the fluted trim and cut out patterns if you prefer??
Drain the peaches Reserve the juice for your filling.Lightly Coat the foil tin Pan with Crisco Nonstick Spray. Then Place your Drained Peaches in the pan,I use 3-4 Large Cans of Peaches in Heavy Syrup Net WT 29Oz.Halved Peaches Look Nice and Work Well faced down.I've even used a 5lb can before but doubled the Glaze ingredients. With this glaze its Very Sweet so when you add the peaches it mellows the Flavor and works out well.Make the Glaze then Pour it over the Peaches. You can Doubel the glaze but as I mentioned its Very Sweet So,Don't use two full bacthes..
Then You take out the pastry that has been chilled, Place on a lightly floured surface, I place a sheet of Parchment paper out and sprinkle the flour on the parchment paper place the dough in between two sheets and roll out dough to fit one side of the pan,Then I carefully place the pastry onto the drained peaches,Try to not let the juice's seap on top if this happens ,Which it will ;) Don't worry dab it up with a papertowel and seal it with the dough.Try to place it close to the edges to prevent this from happening,You will then roll out the other bacth to cover the other side,seal it with your fingers, it will bake together as one full crust,Then you add the fluted crust, Roll out and slice with a Pizza roller and cut into long strips and add to the edges,Flute the Edges.Add Heart Shapped Pattern's Or Personalize it for a Family Reunion...
Bake for 50-55 Minutes to an hour @ 375 degrees I like to play it on the Safe Side and Bake it @ 350 degrees. Bake Until it gets Golden. If You would like you can top it with Cinnamon Sugar as well prior to Baking. This is a Great Cobbler!!! Everyone Loves it.. It Will Be a Sure Hit!!! I Promise ;] Its Been Tested and approved...
Also Note; You Can use this Crust for Chicken Pot Pie,And any other Pie filling for a Large Gathering..You'll be The Hit @ The Next Large Gathering, Family Reunion ;]
