Peach Cobbler

I made this cobbler on a cold Winter's day just hoping for the warmer days of Summer.  The cobbler was so refreshing.  Delicious! 

1/2 cup sugar
1 TBS cornstarch
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
6 cups sliced fresh or frozen peaches (thawed - no need to drain the juice)
1 tsp lemon juice
3 TBS shortening
1 cup flour
1 TBS sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk

Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix 1/2 cup sugar, the cornstarch and cinnamon in a 2 quart saucepan.  Stir in the peaches and lemon juice.  Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute. You may need to add just a touch more cornstarch if it is not thickening up.  Pour into an ungreased 2 quart casserole; keep peach mixture hot in the oven.

Cut shortening into flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, the baking powder and salt until mixture resembles fine crumbs.  Stir in milk.  Drop dough by 6 spoonfuls onto hot peach mixture.

Bake until topping is golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.  Serve warm.

You may top with whipped cream or serve with ice cream.

Serve 6
