Recipe of the Week, July 7: Peach Cobbler

 I brought back fresh peaches from South Carolina and wanted to try a new recipe for peach cobbler. 

This recipe from Cook's Country is a real winner. It says for two-but it was an 8" skillet full, and served us twice.

              

Peach Cobbler for Two

Serves 2

Three-quarters pound thawed, frozen, sliced peaches may be substituted for the fresh. If using frozen peaches, eliminate the covered cooking time in step 1 and increase the uncovered cooking time to 6 to 8 minutes, or until the peaches begin to lightly caramelize. If you don’t have buttermilk, combine ¼ cup milk with 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and let sit for about 10 minutes before proceeding.

Filling

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1 pound fresh peaches, peeled, halved, pitted, and cut into ½-inch wedges, or ¾ pound frozen sliced peaches, thawed and drained

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/8 teaspoon salt

1½ teaspoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon all-purpose flour

Topping

½ cup (2½ ounces) all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons granulated sugar

½ teaspoon baking powder

1/8 teaspoon baking soda

1/8 teaspoon salt

¼ cup buttermilk

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled

1. For the filling: Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter in 8-inch ovensafe skillet over medium-high heat. Add peaches, sugar, and salt and cook, covered, until peaches release their juices, about 3 minutes. Remove lid and simmer until liquid has evaporated and peaches begin to caramelize, 4 to 6 minutes. Whisk lemon juice and flour together in bowl and stir into peaches. Cover skillet and remove from heat.

2. For the topping: Whisk flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in bowl. Stir in buttermilk and butter until dough forms.

3. Using spoon, drop 1-inch pieces of dough spaced evenly over hot peach mixture in skillet. Sprinkle with remaining 2 teaspoons sugar and bake until topping is golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool on wire rack for 10 minutes. Serve.

This is pretty much close to what I do..it's a heck of a lot easier and tasty too!

 I've made this before, and it's easy. Easy to remember because it's one of everything, then a little sugar sprinkled over the top. The recipe above has a more pronounced peach flavor, and is a more old-fashioned style.
