MeeMee’s Peach Cobbler

MeeMee, my grandma, strikes again. I know, I know, again with the grandma recipes, but they’re just too good to not to share with you all. (It also gives me a little bit of practice, so one day my version might be half as good as hers. We’ll see… time will tell.) This peach cobbler is one of my ALL TIME favorites. Growing up, MeeMee had peach trees that would seemingly drag their branches across the ground, begging for relief from their heavy burden. We’d have so much that all we could do was make jam or cobbler. I always hoped the needle pointed toward cobbler. I could eat the whole pan by myself. But enough obsessing. You’ll just have to try it for yourself!

 

Peach Cobbler – serves 4

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 4 cups peaches*
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar†
  • 1/2 cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons butter (cut into small cubes)
  • Pie crust (cut into strips)

*Ripe peaches work best

†Depending on the sweetness of the peaches, reduce the amount of sugar

Directions:

Peel, pit, and slice peaches, set aside. Combine dry ingredients (sugar, cornstarch, salt, and cinnamon) in a small bowl. Mix well. Combine lemon juice and sliced peaches and place in a medium baking dish. Pour dry ingredients over top. Pour water in corners of pan and lightly on top. Take strips of pie crust and lay on top of fruit. Dot with small cubes of butter and sprinkle crust with a little bit of sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes. Serve with ice cream, or plain yogurt with a drizzle of honey.

What will we cook up next?!
