I got this recipe from Emeril's show on the Food Network. He said the recipe was courtesy of Edith Harris, 1999. I haven't made this yet but plan to...it sounds scrumptious!!!!!

- 3⁄4 cup Crisco
- 1⁄3 cup ice water
For the filling
- 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter
- 4 lbs fresh peaches or 4 lbs frozen peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
- 4 cups sugar
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 12 scoops vanilla ice cream
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- In mixing bowl, combine flour, salt and shortening.
- Mix until the mixture becomes mealy; Add water and mix well.
- Form into a ball and cover with plastic wrap; Refrigerate until ready to use.
- For the filling: Melt the butter in a large saucepan, over medium heat.
- Add peaches and mix well; In a small bowl, combine sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add to the peaches and mix well; Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook for 8 to 10 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and cool completely; Stir in the vanilla and set aside.
- Remove the dough from the refrigerator and divide in half.
- On a floured surface, roll out half of the dough into a rectangle, 12 by 10 inches.
- Using a knife, cut the dough to fit the pan, reserving the excess trim.
- Place the dough in an 11 by 9 x 4 inch pan and press down to mold.
- Pour half of the filling over the crust; Cut reserved dough into nickel-size pieces.
- Dot peach filling with dough; Pour remaining filling over the dough pieces.
- Roll out remaining ball of dough and place on top of the peaches, pinching the edges to seal in the juices.
- Make 3 slits in the top crust and place in oven; Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown.
- Remove from oven and rest for 10 minutes before serving; Spoon cobbler into individual bowls and serve with a scoop of ice cream.

This is the best flavored fresh peach cobbler that I have ever made (or tasted). The crust is also very good.
