Peach Cobbler

It's finally that time of year! If you like a lot of cobbler on your peach cobbler, then this recipe is for you. I have been making this cobbler for's my families favorite summer dessert.

Peach Cobbler
4 cups (about 6 medium) fresh peaches
1/2 cup sugar ( use a little less if you don't like your cobbler really sweet)
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 eggs, at room temperature
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
For the filling:
Peel and slice fresh peaches. Add lemon juice and set aside. in a small bowl mix together sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch. Put peaches and sugar mixture in a 3 quart saucepan and cook stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute. Pour into prepared casserole.
For the cobbler:
In a medium size bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix in butter and eggs with a wooden spoon. Mix until soft dough forms. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto peach mixture. Topping will spread as it bakes. Bake for 35 minutes, until golden brown.
(Halfway through baking time, sprinkle with teaspoon of sugar, if desired)
