Texas Peach Cobbler
Cooking Light Annual Recipes 2008 Copyright 2007
4 cups sliced peeled ripe peaches (about 2 pounds)
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 tablespoons butter
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (about 5 1/2 ounces)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
Dash of ground cinnamon
1 cup 1% low-fat milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon turbinado sugar (I used regular sugar)
Preheat oven to 350°.
To prepare filling, combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl; set aside.
To prepare batter, place butter in an 8-inch square baking dish. Place dish in oven 5 minutes or until butter melts. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients (through dash of cinnamon) in a medium bowl. Combine milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla; add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Spoon batter over butter, spreading evenly (do not stir). Spoon peach mixture over batter, gently pressing peaches into batter. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar, and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until crust is golden.

I bought the most incredible peaches on Friday. I can't remember the last time I tasted such a good peach. They were so good, I wasn't going to use them in a recipe but as good as they were, I couldn't really eat them all before they were past their prime so I made this. Not only were these peaches flavorful and juicy, they were incredibly well-behaved and let me peel their skins right off of them, making this a cinch to prepare. I served this with Green's Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream, which is one of my favorite vanilla ice creams, outside of Häagen Daz. It was definitely worth using those perfect peaches in this recipe.
