Peach Cobbler

This week the Carnival of Recipes marks the first carnival of it's second year. Deep genuflections to Conservative Cat whose brainchild this was. As CoR is celebrating it's birthday I am going to post a recipe for peach cobbler. This recipe is modeled after my mom's blackberry cobbler, a treat of mouthwatering delight that turned your mouth purple as an iris. Peaches are my Dear Husband's favorite fruit, he demands peach pie instead of birthday cake. Lucky for him he was born in August to facilitate that demand.

Peach Cobbler:

Fruit goody:

2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp flour
4 - 4 1/2 cups peeled, diced peaches
1 tsp lemon juice
whisp of cinnamon

Cake (sometimes called biscuit):

3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup quick oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 stick (4 Tbsp) chilled butter
1/4 cup milk

Combine brown sugar, flour and cinnamon in large bowl then add peaches and lemon juice tossing until thoroughly coated. Pour into casserole dish.

Now combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter with fingers or fork until crumbly. Stir in milk until cake is just cohesive. Roll out and cut in strips or crescents and place on top of fruit. Sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees then reduce heat to 325 and bake until fruit goody bubbles and topping is brown about another 20 minutes.

UPDATE: How wrong I type! I meant Beth at She Who Will Be Obeyed
is the mastermind behind the Carnival of Recipes. I grovel for a kind word.
