I love this cookbook - Smoke & Spice. Many of the intros and some of the comments are so funny. Anyway........

Texans usually like their peach cobblers with an abundance of juicy fruit and a biscuit-like batter topping that's crunchy on the surface and doughy inside.

Ingredients

FILLING:

3 1/2 lb
ripe medium peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced
1/4 c
sugar
1 Tbsp
freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tsp
ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp
ground ginger
3/4 tsp
pure vanilla extract

BATTER:

1/4 c
unsalted butter
1 1/4 c
all purpose flour
3/4 c
sugar
2 tsp
baking powder
1 c
milk

TO SERVE:

peach melba ice cream, optional
whipped cream, optional

Step-By-Step

1Preheat the oven to 350F.

2In a bowl, mix together all the fruit filling ingredients.

3Set the fruit aside to draw out the juices while preparing the batter. Cobbler filling should be a bit juicier than most pies.

4Melt the butter in a 9 by 13-inch baking dish, either in the oven or on the stove.

5In another bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, and baking powder and add the milk.

6Mix until lightly blended.

7Spoon the mixture evenly over the melted butter.

8Don't stir it, which eliminates the development of crunchy edges.

9Pour the peach filling evenly over the batter.

10Bake for 45 minutes.

11As the cobbler cooks, the batter oozes up and around the fruit, crowning the cobbler with a moist golden brown crust.

12Serve warm.

13If you're a certified hedonist, top it with ice cream or whipped cream.

14Variation: Blackberry Cobbler
Make a blackberry cobbler by substituting berries for the peaches and eliminating the ginger. For ourselves, we would also add 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.
