I have a love for Peach Cobbler and since it is the season of fresh peaches, I thought 'Why Not'. Of course I immediately went to my favorite resource Pinterest and found a recipe called 'Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler'. I looked over the recipe and decided that it was simple enough and I had all but one ingredient; it was lemon juice and I decided that my recipe could live without it. This dish turned out not only beautiful but amazingly delicious. I decided to rename it 'The Best and Freshest Southern Peach Cobbler', because it is!
The ingredients are pretty simple, however as I stated above, the original recipe calls for lemon juice but since I did not have any I decided to exclude it. The recipe calls for 9 peaches, I think that if you have 8 peaches you will be fine but no less.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Peel peaches. In a bowl, combine cut up peaches, 1/4 c white sugar, 1/4 c brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cornstarch. Stir to coat evenly. Pour into a 2 quart baking dish and bake 10 minutes.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, 1/4 c white sugar and 1/4 c brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend in butter with your fingers or a pastry blender. Stir in hot water. Once the peaches are removed from the oven, plop the flour mixture throughout the peach mix. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon and sugar.
Bake at 425 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Let cool a bit before serving and serve with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
