So my peach tree has been over producing this year. So much so, that the limbs are threatening to break and today I had to relieve the poor tree of some pressure. The cobbler pictured above is the product of my mercy mission today. This is by far THEE best cobbler recipe ever. You can switch it around and use apples & raisins too.
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 35 mins
Total time: 45 mins
• 2 cups sliced peaches (fresh is best, but canned works great too!)
• 2 Tablespoons + 1 cup granulated sugar, divided
• ½ cup butter, softened
• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• pinch of salt
• pinch of nutmeg (optional)
• 1 large egg
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 2 quart baking dish with non-stick spray.
2 Spread sliced peaches out in a single layer in prepared dish. Sprinkle tops of peaches with 2 Tablespoons sugar.
3 In a medium bowl, with an electric hand-mixer, beat 1 cup sugar and softened butter together until combined. Add flour, baking powder, salt (and nutmeg if using). Mix. Then add in egg and vanilla. Continue to beat and mix together until just combined. (Batter will be the consistency of cookie dough batter.)
4 Using a spatula, carefully spread batter over the tops of peaches. Trying to spread out as evenly as you can and covering most of the peaches. (I use my hands to help spread it too.)
5 Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!

As you can see my poor peach trees limbs are dragging the ground under the weight of all the peaches it produced this year!
