Peach Cobbler with fresh Fredricksburg Peaches!

     The other day, I decided to venture off the path home and drove out to Fredricksburg, TX.  I traveled 290-West from Johnson City and saw so many peach stands on the side of the road.  I just couldn't help myself, I had to stop.  Since peaches are in season, I thought I'd make my mom's cobbler recipe.  This is not her favorite, but it is mine.  She prefers a thin cobbler crust to the fluffy kind which this recipe has.  I love it!

Peach Cobbler

2 cups of fresh peaches or a 29 oz. can of peaches, drained (since I had so many, I cut up more peaches than were called for and it didn't hurt a thing)
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
¾ cup flour
½ cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
¾ cup milk
⅓ cup unsalted butter, melted

Arrange peeled and sliced peaches in a brownie pan (I used an oblong Pyrex dish). Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over peaches and drizzle with lemon juice.

In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt, baking powder, sugar, and milk until smooth. Pour batter over peaches. Drizzle melted butter over batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes to an hour. Crust will puff up and begin to turn golden when done.

These are a few of my small white flesh peaches grown on my tree outback; I added them into the cobbler.

And here's the finished product.
I love this stuff and was sad to see the last of the left overs disappear.  Try it warm with Vanilla icecream if you really want to swoon.

By the way, I'm sharing for Foodie Friday @ Designs by GollumFOODIE FRIDAY Click for details  What better way to pay homage to her new book's heroine, Teeny Templeton, than to make this peach of a dessert?! ; )
