Peach-A-Cobbler

Peach-A-Cobbler is a recipe my Mom made me many many times growing up. I am not sure where it originated from, but I do know it came from my Aunt Sandra. The recipe was not originally named "Peach-A-Cobbler", but for some strange reason that's what I called it. And even after being corrected for many years, I will continue to call it this, because well, I can. It is my favorite cobbler recipe and is always a crowd pleaser. It's the kind of dessert you don't want to share because its that good. The delightful dessert is best served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. My version is modified a little, but not much. I make my crust from scratch most of the time - not because its better; but, because  I am too cheap to pay for it I always have the ingredients on hand. It is great either way and it is very simple too.
(As you can see by the photo, my kids could not wait until I took the picture to eat it; nor, am I a pastry chef, but boy did it taste good!)

Peach-A-Cobbler

1 Double Crust Pie Pastry
2 Large Cans Peaches in heavy syrup, drained
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp ginger (optional; gives it even more flavor)
1/2 tsp salt
3 heaping Tbsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp butter

Preheat oven to 450*
In a small bowl, mix sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and cornstarch.
In a deep 2 quart or larger round baking dish, place the bottom crust. Dump one can of peaches into the dish. Top with half of the sugar mixture. Dump the second can of peaches. Top with remaining sugar mixture and slat of butter cut into quarters (just dollop onto the top). Cover pie with the top layer of crust; pinch edges to seal. Cut a few slits in the top of the crust to vent.

Cook 40-45 minutes. If edges start to get too brown, cover the edges with foil (take a square piece, fold in half and cut out a half moon. When you open it up, you will have a circle)

  3. Mom, I am confused. You know whats really funny? I forgot to put the cornstarch in it. It was really runny, but good. Jason said, "It's good, but next time you should put some cornstarch in it to thicken it up". Oops.
