This peach cobbler recipe was shared on our forum. The filling is made with fresh peaches, covered with pastry dough strips.
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 8 cups fresh peaches (sliced)
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract or vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- For the Pastry:
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 4 tablespoons ice water
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1/4 cup sugar
Butter a 9x13-inch baking dish. Preheat oven to 400° F (200° C/Gas 6).
Filling: Combine sugar and cornstarch; toss with peaches. Add the almond or vanilla extract and the 1/4 cup melted butter; set aside.
Pastry: Combine the flour, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. Cut shortening into the flour mixture until it is the consistency of cornmeal. Gradually add ice water, stirring, just until the dough holds its shape.
Roll out on a floured board and cut into strips.
Pour the peach filling mixture into the prepared baking pan.
Criss-cross dough strips over the filling and brush pastry generously with remaining butter. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 30 minutes or until the crust is brown.
