Peach Cobbler is one of my favorite desserts. I like the crust for my cobblers to have the pastry crust instead of the batter crust. The crust for this cobbler may be rolled in cut into strips or crumbled over the top of the peaches. A scoop of vanilla ice cream is the crowning touch to this yummy dessert.
Homemade Peach Cobbler
4 cups sliced fresh peaches
1 cup sugar
½ cup boiling water
1/3 cup butter or oleo
1 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup Crisco shortening
¼ cup water
Place peaches in a large flat baking dish.
Cover with sugar; add boiling water.
For pastry, cut Crisco shortening into flour and salt, then add water.
The pastry should be well chilled, it is best to make it the day before.
Crumble or slice pastry over top of peaches and dot with butter.
Bake at 400 degree for about 30 minutes.
You may use canned or frozen peaches in place of the fresh peaches, but the fresh peaches are outstanding.
