Peach Cobbler

I'm not much of a baker - I don't like to measure things or do anything carefully - but since peach cobbler is my dad's favorite dessert (well, he also loves german chocolate cake!) and peaches are in season, I decided to give it a try. I looked at tons of recipes - and several FB friends sent me theirs, too - and opted for Paula Deen's recipe. It looked like little baking effort and seemed foolproof.

Now let me just say... peeling fresh peaches is a PITA. I've convinced myself fresh has to be much better than canned but it was a lot of work. They are slippery little suckers, too!

She calls for a 3 quart baking dish. I don't have one. So I used two smaller pans and split the recipe in half. Turned out great and now I can just send an entire dish home with my dad!

Peach Cobbler
1.5 cup self rising flour
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup water
2 cup sugar, divided
4 cup peeled, sliced peaches
1.5 cup milk
ground cinnamon

.Preheat oven to 350.
Combine peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
Put butter in 3 quart baking dish and place in oven to melt. Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup.
Sprinkle top with cinnamon. Batter will rise to top during baking.
Bake for 30-45 minutes.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
