Peach Cobbler Anyone?

I made yummy peach cobbler for dessert last night and thought I'd share the recipe.  Just imagine I'm giving you one of those cute little recipe cards with "From the Kitchen of Heart of a Cowgirl" at the top....

In addition to being sinfully delicious, this recipe has the added benefit of being super easy.  I found the recipe at Epicurious.com several years ago and have been using it ever since.
First, preheat your oven to 425 degrees.  Cut 6 large peaches into thin wedges (to make this recipe even easier, I leave the skin on the peaches.  I like the added flavor and texture, but feel free to peel them).  Toss with 1/4 c. sugar, 1 T. fresh lemon juice and 1 t. cornstarch in a 2-qt. baking dish and bake in middle of oven for 10 minutes.

Make topping while peaches bake:  Stir together 1 c. all purpose flour, 1/2 c. sugar, 1 t. baking powder and 1/2 t. salt.  Blend in 3/4 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, using your fingertips or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Stir in 1/4 c. boiling water until just combined.

Remove peaches from oven and drop spoonfuls of topping over them.  Bake in middle of oven until topping is golden, about 25 minutes (Topping will spread as it bakes).  Serves 4.
The end result:
So good!  And don't forget a dollop of whipped cream on top.  Or better yet, a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Enjoy!

Yummy, yum, yum. I do pay more attention to dessert recipes than entrees for some reason.

Oh this looks SO good. We went to a peach festival last weekend and I had the best peach crisp there (picture on my blog)...I'm hoping to go to another peach festival nearby tomorrow. Thanks for sharing a tried and true recipe.
