  • For the filling: Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Melt butter in large oven-safe nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add two-thirds of peaches, sugar, and salt and cook, covered, until peaches release their juices, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove lid and simmer until all liquid has evaporated and peaches begin to caramelize, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Add remaining peaches and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  • Whisk lemon juice and cornstarch in small bowl, then stir into peach mixture.
  • Cover skillet and set aside off heat.
  • For the topping: Meanwhile, whisk flour, 5 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl.
  • Stir in buttermilk and butter until dough forms.
  • Turn dough out onto lightly floured work surface and knead briefly until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  • Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon.
  • Break dough into rough 1-inch pieces and space them about 1/2 inch apart on top of hot peach mixture.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake until topping is golden brown and filling is thickened, 18 to 22 minutes.
  • Let cool on wire rack for 10 minutes.
  • Serve. (Although best eaten the day it is made to maintain the texture of the cobbles, leftovers may be refrigerated for up to 1 day. Individual portions may be removed from skillet and reheated in microwave or in the oven.).
