 Peach Cobbler

This is my first attempt at a peach cobbler and I must say, it turned out pretty damn delicious. My peaches might not be from Georgia but I doubt anyone could tell the difference. Enjoy!


5 ripe peaches
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 1/2 cup flour
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons very cold butter
2/3 cup buttermilk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cut peaches in half, slice into 1/2 inch thick slices, then half again. In a bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, peaches, and lemon juice. 
2. Pour into 2-quart baking dish. 
3. In your electric mixer, mix together flour, baking powder and soda, 3 tablespoons sugar, and salt. 
4. Chop cold butter into small squares then whisk into flour sugar until it resembles coarse meal.
5. Add buttermilk and stir until dough forms. 
6. Spread dough mixture evenly over peach filling. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon sugar on top. 
7. Bake about 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown. 
8. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
