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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 350F.
2
In a bowl, mix together all the fruit filling ingredients.
3
Set the fruit aside to draw out the juices while preparing the batter. Cobbler filling should be a bit juicier than most pies.
4
Melt the butter in a 9 by 13-inch baking dish, either in the oven or on the stove.
5
In another bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, and baking powder and add the milk.
6
Mix until lightly blended.
7
Spoon the mixture evenly over the melted butter.
8
Don't stir it, which eliminates the development of crunchy edges.
9
Pour the peach filling evenly over the batter.
10
Bake for 45 minutes.
11
As the cobbler cooks, the batter oozes up and around the fruit, crowning the cobbler with a moist golden brown crust.
12
Serve warm.
13
If you're a certified hedonist, top it with ice cream or whipped cream.

Variation: 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.
