Today’s Thursday Throwback is posted by another guest author — my Mom!  Enjoy!

Every summer my husband decides it’s time for peach cobbler. This recipe is an old family classic. The aroma of sweet peaches simmering on the stove builds the anticipation for dessert! The juices just flow from the fruit as they blend with the sugar and cinnamon, creating a rich, thick filling. After pouring the peaches and sauce into the casserole it is time to move on to the cobbler or biscuit topping. I like to use a pastry blender for this stage. It is one of my favorite (and least expensive) kitchen tools. They are great for pie crusts and other dough based treats. Be careful not to over mix the biscuits or they may become dry and tough. Serve warm with ice cream and enjoy the taste of summer!

For the Peaches

½ C sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
4 C sliced fresh peaches
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Blend sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch in medium saucepan on stove at medium heat. Stir in the sliced peaches and lemon juice. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and begins to boil. Boil, while stirring, for 1 minute. Pour into ungreased 2-quart casserole. ( I like an oval one so it cooks more evenly.) Set aside while you prepare the cobbler topping.

For the Cobbler Topping

1 C flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons shortening
½ C milk

Measure flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Add shortening and milk. Cut through shortening about 6 times – I like to use a pastry cutter/pastry blender. Mix until the dough forms a ball. Divide dough into 6 spoonfuls and place on top of fruit in casserole dish.

The oven should be preheated by now. Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm-delicious with French vanilla ice cream!
