Peach Cobbler
Paula Deen
Paula's Home Cooking

If you could spend the day with one person who would it be?  My ideal day would be with Ms. Paula Deen, I enjoy to watch her tv series, I love her energy, how she acts with her boys, her love of buter, and her wonderful personality. But then any day in the kitchen is always a wonderful day so if I couldn't have her, I'd take any chef that would spent time with me.  Teach me all they know in 8 hours! Any volunteers?  The pages of Paula's food photo's are alway beautiful and make your mouth water.  I didn't have the mint to put on my cobbler for the photo.  No mint growing in my flower patch. But I am growing some basil. Sure she has a recipe to use that in .  We had our taste testers over for dessert, Tim, Heidi and Emily and this was approved by all.  I have to admit that another food I have never had is Peach Cobbler. The peaches I used were ripe and full of flavor. When I was peeling them I did the work over a plate and the juice that came out of the peaches while peeling them, I poured into the saucepan.  This is a make again recipe.  Hope you enjoy. 

1 1/2 cup of self-rising flour
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup water
2 cups sugar, divided
4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
1 1/2 cups milk
ground cinnamon

before baking

                                                     After baking

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel peaches and slice, combine these in a saucepan along with 1 cup of sugar, and the 1/2 cup water. Bring this mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Using a 3 quart baking dish, place the butter in the baking dish and place in the oven to melt the butter. In the meantime, in a medium size bowl or a 4 cup pyrex pitcher add the 1 cup of sugar, flour and slowly add the milk while whisking this until blended. Remove the baking dish from the oven, pour the flour mixture over the melted butter (do not stir) then using a slotted spoon arrange the peaches on top of the batter then carefully pour the syrup over the peaches. Sprinkle with the cinnamon and bake for 30-45 minutes. Serve in big bowl along with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Serves 8-10
