This peach cobbler adapted from The Joy of Cooking and tastes just like mom's (who didn't use a recipe) so it's one of my favorites. Not too sweet. Biscuit-like topping. Great with cold milk poured over all.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Fruit filling

  • 4 -5 cups fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 12-34 cup sugar (depending on sweetness of peaches)
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 12 cup water
  • 12-1 teaspoon vanilla (or almond?)
  • Biscuits

  • 2 cups flour
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 23 cup buttermilk
  • 13 cup oil

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Filling: Put peaches and water in 2-qt saucepan. Mix sugar and flour together. Pour over top. Stir together and bring just to a boil over medium heat. When mixture boils, add vanilla and remove from heat. Pour into glass baking dish (8X8 or round equivalent).
