Making the Cobbler

To make the peach cobbler, you will want to begin by making your made-from-scratch peach filling. You will take the peaches that you sliced along with the sugar and salt and place them all in a saucepan. Combine the ingredients by cooking and stirring on medium heat for only a few minutes. The sugar should be dissolved. Take the saucepan with the filling off the heat and set aside.

Next, you will preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a 9×13 baking dish, you will add the butter that you have sliced into pieces. Put the pan in the oven as it preheats, allowing your butter to melt. When the butter has been melted, you may take the pan out of the oven, but do not turn off the oven.

The next step will be to mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large mixing bowl. You will then add the milk as you stir, until everything is well-combined. Pour the batter mix into the pan over the melted butter. Make sure to smooth out the batter. Then spoon the peach filling over the batter. Sprinkle the entire thing with ground cinnamon. You will bake the cobbler for about 40 minutes. The cobbler is best served warm and a la mode with vanilla bean ice cream. You and your family are sure to enjoy this Southern favorite this summer!
