One of my favorite holiday desserts is Mom’s homemade peach cobbler.
When us kids were young, Mom made it from scratch, meaning, she made the pie dough herself. I have never made pie dough, though I’m sure if I applied myself I could master it. I cheat. I use “store bought” dough from the dairy. You could use the dough from the frozen crusts after thawed and cut into strips.
I buy 2 large cans and a small can of peaches and I drain off most of the juice. Sometimes I cut the peaches into small pieces, but sometimes I use the potato masher to smash them up.
The first time I made the cobbler, I put about 3 or 4 tablespoons of corn starch in a cup and mixed water in it and added this mix to 1 cup of sugar, with the cinnamon. The last time I made it I just put the corn starch right into the sugar cinnamon mix, no water. It seemed to do better without the water.
I mixed the sugar-cinnamon-cornstarch mix into the peaches.
I cut the dough into strips.
I smeared butter all over the bottom and sides of the pan, then put a layer of the peaches. A layer of the dough and some butter. Another layer of peaches, and then dough and butter. I turn the dough different directions in each layer. Continue until the peaches are gone.
And it’s ready to bake at whatever temperature the dough calls for.
Does your family like peach cobbler? I’ve never found a store bought cobbler that tastes as good as homemade.
Enjoying the holidays!
