I made the following dessert during my Crisps & Cobblers cooking class, which you can read about HERE.
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
¾ cup half & half
3 cups sliced fresh peaches, peeled or skins left on
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Wash, peel and slice the peaches as thin or thick as you prefer.
Melt the stick of butter and pour into an 8-inch square baking dish.
In a medium bowl, stir together the 1 cup sugar, the 1 cup flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 3/4 cup half & half.
Pour the batter on top of the melted butter. Do not stir.
Without mixing, arrange the peaches evenly on top of the batter.
Evenly sprinkle the brown sugar over the cobbler.
Bake the cobbler for 40 to 45 minutes, until the top turns golden brown.
The batter will migrate from the bottom of the pan to cover the peach slices partially.
Serve warm or at room temperature; Yield 6 to 8 servings.
