    acerast's Note:

    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.

      I have been making this recipe for years, ever since Marcia Adams first appeared on PBS. It has been the one recipe that has been requested over and over again by family and friends. I'll never make another peach cobbler recipe again! And I have made it only in its original state finding that the almond extract adds a wonderful flavor to the peaches and the crust that this makes is wonderful.

      I really enjoyed making this one, it was quick and easy. Very good rich taste. I added a little sugar,lemon extract, and cinnamon to the peaches (to taste) Great recipe.

      Pretty good! 1 tsp. was too much almond extract - gives it a bitter, almost overwhelming almond flavor. I might try it with a little less sugar next time, too.
