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.
