1 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tbsp cornstarch
¼ cup water
4 cups fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced
1 egg
¼ cup milk

For topping, in a medium bowl stir together flour, 2 Tbsp of sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.

For filling, in a saucepan, combine 1/3 cup sugar and 1 Tbsp cornstarch. Add 1/4 cup water. Stir in 4 cups of fresh peach slices. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly.

In a small bowl, stir together the egg and milk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just to moisten. Transfer filling to a 2-quart square baking dish. Using a spoon, immediately drop topping into small mounds atop filling.

Bake cobbler in a 400ºF oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into topping comes out clean. If desired, serve warm with ice cream.

Peach, is my oldest sister Shirley’s absolute favorite of all cobblers and pies. So this one is for her. I would have gotten her recipe but she never measures and rarely uses a recipe, she just tosses whatever she has in the pan and it is amazing.

What is peculiar in the life of a man consists not in his obedience, but his opposition, to his instincts. In one direction or another he strives to live a supernatural life. ~ Henry David Thoreau
