Southern Cobbler

Cobblers are a popular dessert option in the south. Every other mom and pop shop have tasty cobbler options and I will admit I love it. When I was 16 my mom moved deep in the country beside a peach orchard in SC. She used to walk across the street at night and pick all the peaches off the ground because they were “free”. After a night of “gathering” my mom came home insisting that we make something yummy. We grabbed a cast iron pan mixed all the ingredients we thought would work (very common practice for our household lol) and VOILA.

• 2 pounds fresh peaches
• 3/4 cup salted butter
• 1 cup self-rising flour
• 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
• 1 cup whole milk
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Step 1
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Gently rub peaches under running water to remove fuzz, and slice peaches. (You should have about 4-5 cups.) Place butter in a baking dish. Place dish in the oven until the butter melts. Stir flour, sugar, milk, and vanilla in a bowl, and pour onto melted butter. (Do not stir.) Spoon peaches over mixture. (Do not stir.)

Step 2
Bake in preheated oven until brown and bubbly, 45 to 50 minutes.
