This recipe is Sqweet. ( New favorite word) I have a friend who was talking with a really cute boy and at the end of the conversation tried to say “cool” and “sweet” simultaneously. It was not a strong finish. It was kinda awkward. And kinda awesome.
But she was embarrassed and needed cobbler.
I love cobbler because it’s like “dummy pie”. All the pay off with zero commitment. Sort of like a flirtatious encounter with a stranger that ends in a blurted malapropism. yeah, sort of like that.
It’s warm, gooey, and great with ice cream.
It’s wonderful with any fruit, but Peaches are an Americana Classic. So duh, i used them.

1 c. Flour
2 Tbs. Sugar
1 ½ tsp. Baking Powder
¼ tsp Salt
½ tsp Ground cinnamon
¼ c. Butter
6 ripe peaches, sliced
2/3 c. sugar
1 Tbs. cornstarch
¼ c. milk
¼ c. water
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
For topping, in a medium bowl stir together flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Cut in butter until you have a coarse crumb. Set aside
In a little bowl, mix egg and milk. Add to flour mixture and combine just until moistened. DO NOT OVERWORK YOUR DUMBLING DOUGH. This is critical.
In a glass baking pan (I use a pie dish) pour in the hot filling and spoon dough over. You can get about 6 good scoops. Use your fingers to spread it out just a little and pop in the oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
The hardest part is waiting for it to cool for 30 minutes after. Don’t ignore this step. If you do, it will be like spooning lava into your mouth. Which is not good eats. Be careful…Cobbler kills.
