We love COBBLER and we’re not talkin’ about the guy who fixes your shoes. This is a man’s “pie” without all the fuss. Throw all the fruit in a casserole dish, top it with a simple topping and watch it bake! We like to wait to take it out of the oven just when the first juices are oozing over the side of the dish.
Peach and Cinnamon Cobbler
Butter for coating dish
6 cups peaches, halved, pitted, and sliced 1/4 inch thick
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup quick-cooking tapioca
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 2/3 cups all-purpose ß our, plus additional
3 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
2/3 cup heavy cream, plus additional for brushing
Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 2 1/2-quart baking dish. In a medium bowl, stir together the filling ingredients. Pour filling into the prepared dish; set aside.
For the topping, in a food processor or large bowl, pulse or whisk together the 1 2/3 cups flour, the sugar, baking powder, and salt. Pulse or cut in the butter until the
mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Slowly add the 2/3 cup cream, mixing until the dough just comes together. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and pat together. Form the dough into 2-inch balls. Flatten balls gently with the palm of your hand.
Evenly arrange the dough rounds on top of the filling. Brush a little cream over the rounds. Bake about 1 hour or until the biscuits are golden and the filling is bubbling.
