Marcia Adams is an exceptional cook and author who hosted the PBS show, "Amish Cooking from Quilt Country". This is a delicious peach cobbler that is unusual in that the dry ingredients and peaches are layered and then boiling water is poured over all before it bakes into a lovely summer dessert. My Dad loves this and my Mom has phoned me many times over the years asking for this recipe when she has misplaced it. Now it's posted for all of us to share.
