Anything Cobbler

Let this be your anything cobbler!   Use any fruit!  Use any amount of butter!  Use any amount of water!  That we enjoy making it in summer is a testament to the deliciousness of baked stone fruit and the "anything" quality of summer -- indeed, here we have a most forgiving recipe!

Prep Time15 minsCook Time35 minsTotal Time50 mins

 4 large, ripe peaches (or 6 smaller peaches)
 ¾ cup sugar (divided into 1/4 and 1/2)
 1 tbsp lemon juice
 1 tsp cornstarch
 1 cup flour
 1 tsp baking powder
 ½ tsp salt
 ¾ stick cold butter, coarsely chopped
 ¼ cup boiling water

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

2

In a 9x9 baking dish, slice peaches to desired size, and add 1/4 cup of sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch. Bake for 10 minutes.

3

While the peaches are baking, sift the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Add butter pieces until the flour mixture has the appearance of a course crumble.

4

Add the water until a doughy, wet batter forms.

5

Spoon batter onto peaches and bake for 25 minutes. Crumbly should be lightly browned, and peaches bubbling!
