Peach Cobbler

peach-cobbler-4You knew this was coming, right? Peach Cobbler!

I think the last time I had a homemade peach cobbler was yearrrrrs ago (maybe middle school?) when my family and I drove (ug, drove!) down to Hilton Head, SC – great trip, but that’s not the point of the story. At the very end of the vacation we met up with my sister’s southern pen pal and her family (remember pen pals? Again, not the point of the story, but I loved having pen pals! They should bring pen-palling back!). Anyway, the pen pal and her family were CRA-ZY! Needless to say, my sister and pen-pal never wrote again after meeting in person – but in the meantime the family gave us a CARload of local southern fruit, veggies, and baked goods – including a freshly baked peach cobbler. It was delicious! I had never had peach cobbler but loved the sweet peaches with the biscuit-like topping…yum. And then I never ate it again until last week…

Of course peach cobbler was on the top of my list to make after we went peach picking. I used Martha’s recipe and it certainly did not disappoint. I followed her recipe to the letter:

peach-cobbler-1Cutting peaches…

 

peach-cobbler-2Cutting butter into the flour…

 

peach-cobbler-3And cutting the rolled dough into rounds to plop on top of the sweetened and seasoned peaches.

 

peach-cobbler-5Look at that crusty-sugared biscuit topping!

 

peach-cobbler-6After the cobbler is baked, slightly cooled (it’s SO good warm), it’s almost a requirement to serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
