Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler

Serves 8 to 10

This peach cobbler is at its best when served warm, topped with a scoop of ice cream. (Butter pecan and vanilla are our favorites.) Choose ripe but firm peaches for easy peeling.

  • 6 cups peeled and sliced fresh peaches
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 10 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces and chilled, divided
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup of the flour, 2 tablespoons of the sugar, almond extract and lemon zest and juice. Pile mixture into a 10-inch baking dish or pie plate, then dot with 2 tablespoons of the butter; set aside.

In another bowl, combine remaining 1 1/2 cups flour, 2 tablespoons of the remaining sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a pastry cutter, two knives or your fingers, work butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Add half-and-half and lightly toss together until a soft dough forms. Drop dough by the tablespoon onto peaches until surface is almost covered. Lightly pat down dough to evenly distribute over the top, but leave spaces for the peaches to show through. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and bake for about 40 to 45 minutes, or until top is golden and peaches are bubbling.
