We got this cute ceramic baking dish from Ryan's aunt for Valentines Day. To break it in, this weekend I tried one of my dad's old standby recipes from my childhood - peach cobbler. This recipe was easy, low-cost, and had us eating warm cobbler in about an hour.
2 cans sliced peaches (I might add a third can of just peaches (not the syrup)).
1 T corn starch
1/4 C sugar
1 C flour
1 T sugar
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/4 C vegetable oil
1/2 C milk
6-8 small pats of butter
1. Mix the canned fruit (with syrup), cornstarch, and 1/4 C sugar in a saucepan. Set on medium heat. Heat slowly to a rolling boil, stirring often.
2. To make the dough, mix the remaining dry ingredients in a bowl. Add oil and milk and mix.
3. Pour peach mixture into baking dish. Top with the butter pieces.
4. Place blobs of dough (a large spoonful should be fine) on top of the peaches and butter.
5. Bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. We turned our oven down to 375 for the last ten minutes because our oven runs a little hot, so adjust as necessary. Crust should be golden brown and baked through when cut open with a knife.
Serve warm with whipping cream or ice cream. Makes 4-6 servings, depending on how much you like it!
