Georgia's Best Peach Cobbler
Diane Hopson Smith
This is the way my mother made her cobblers. Very simple but oh so delish!
When I was a little girl, I remember us driving from Alabama over to Georgia to pick peaches. When we got home, mama would peel and slice them and freeze them for later use. And, we would have a cobbler that night.
There were 4 kids and our mom and dad, we could devour mama's cobbler in one sitting!
I've made a few minor changes to the way mama made hers. I think she would approve.
Hope you enjoy!
6 to 8 largefresh peaches, about 4 to 5 cups when sliced
1 Tbsplemon juice (mama didn't use the lemon juice)
1 stickbutter (1/2 cup) mama used margarine
3/4 call purpose flour
2 tspbaking powder
1/2 tspcinnamon (optional)
2 tspsugar (optional)
·vanilla ice cream
How to Make Georgia's Best Peach Cobbler
- This step is optional and I don't recall my mother adding this to her cobblers but I love the taste of cinnamon and peaches together. Combine 1/2 tsp with 2 tsp of sugar; sprinkle over top of cobbler. Place in preheated oven and bake 45 to 50 minunutes until batter is cake like and top is a nice golden brown.
- NOTE: You can use other fruits in place of peaches if you desire.
