Peach Cobbler

When we traveled through South Carolina to a family reunion this past May, we stopped at a Welcome Station and I picked up a neat booklet called Edibles Magazine for May/June 2013.  It described beautiful places to visit and things to do while visiting the state.  It also contained scrumptious food recipes.  One writer described the tasty and healthy peaches as excellent for those trying to lose weight.

How apropos!  I recently bought half a bushel of South Carolina peaches at the Farmer's Market and Melody Reid at the Edibles Magazine has kindly given me permission to share a peach cobbler recipe.  Now, this is not a low calorie recipe.  I won't even try to count the calories but I'll share the peach cobbler and the recipe, too. Here it goes:

Peel and slice peaches to make 4 cups.  Divide 2 cups of sugar.

Combine peaches, 1 cup sugar, and 1/2 cup water in a saucepan.  Mix well and bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat.

Put 8 tbs of butter in a large baking dish and place in the oven for the butter to melt to 3/4 of its original size.

Slowly mix remaining 1 cup sugar with 1 and 1/2 cups of self-rising flour and 1 and 1/2 cups of milk.  Add to the butter in the baking dish without stirring or mixing.  Spoon fruit on top and gently pour the remaining syrup from the saucepan into the baking dish.  Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.

Put in a preheated 350 degree F oven and bake 30 - 40 minutes.  The dough rises during the baking.  This is so good served warm with vanilla ice cream.  Enjoy!
