Fresh Peach Cobbler
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 cups sliced peaches (6 medium)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons shortening
1 cup Gold Medal all-purpose flour*
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
Heat oven to 400 F.
Mix 1/2 cup sugar, the cornstarch and cinnamon in 2-quart saucepan. Stir in
peaches and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly, until
mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute. Pour into ungreased
2-quart casserole; keep peach mixture hot in oven.
Cut shortening into flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, the baking powder and salt
in medium bowl, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until
mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in milk. Drop dough by 6 spoonfuls
onto hot peach mixture.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Serve warm with
cream if desired.
*If using self-rising flour, omit baking powder and salt.
Note: Short on time? Use 2 packages (16 ounces each) frozen sliced
peaches, thawed and well drained, instead of the fresh peaches.
