Company's Here!

Our daughter, Erin and son-in-law Lucas, arrived safely from Denver on Sunday afternoon. Our whole family was together for dinner on Sunday evening. We chowed down on yummy roast and this peach cobbler was our dessert. It was good, if I do say so myself! All we needed to add was some Blue Bell vanilla ice cream and it was perfect!

Here is the recipe:

8 cups sliced fresh peaches
1/3 cup all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter, melted

Dredge peaches in flour; add next 5 ingredients, and mix well. Set aside.

Roll three-fourths of pastry to 1/8 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; fit into a 13 x 9 x 2" baking dish. Spoon in peach mixture.

Roll remaining pastry out to 1/4 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; cut into 1/2 inch strips. Arrange in lattice fashion over peaches. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup shortening
6 to 8 tablespoons ice water
Combine dry ingredients; cut in shortening with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle ice water evenly over surface; stir with a fork until all dry ingredients are moistened. Shape dough into a ball. Yield: Pastry for 1 cobbler.
