Hubby’s Peach Cobbler Birthday

Today is my hubby’s 30th birthday. He’s not one for cake so I get to bake something random for his b-day treat. He decided on peach cobbler or as he called it “peach pie”. What excites me about this recipe is that it’s my g-ma’s and it’s awesome stuff! It has a hard crust on top like a pie. (That’s probably what confuses the hubby)

WARNING: Before you think about making this dessert, I want to be kind and let you know that this does not turn out well in a gas oven. Don’t know why but my mom’s many failed attempts are enough proof for me.

RECIPE
Top:
1 cup Flour
1/2 cup Shortening
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
Filling:
32 oz Frozen Peaches
2 tablespoons Flour
1/2 cup Sugar

Throw all the filling ingredients in a sauce pan and heat. G-ma says until boiling but since I’m using frozen peaches I wait until they are squishy.

At this point, go ahead and preheat the oven to 350. It should be good to go after you make the dough. Take the peachy filling and pour into a 8×8 dish.

The top is a whole three ingredients. Not too much work there! I take a fork and cut the shortening into the flour and baking powder. It eventually all works together. G-ma says she would add milk to her dough but I don’t because mine isn’t dry enough to need anything else. It’s definitely something that you can determine on your own.

You can see from the pic above how it’s working together. Once it’s all combined just squeeze it together with your hands into a nice ball.

Roll the little dough guy out on a floured surface just like you’re making a pie crust. You’re going to roll it into a 8×8 square. Before covering the peachy goodness put a few small squares of butter on top of the peachy filling. Then lay the freshly rolled dough on top.

Bake the cobbler for 35-40 minutes. And it should come out like below. The top will not be crusty. Not yet! When it cools a little bit, pop it in the fridge for a while. After it completely cools pull it back out and give that crust a poke. Crusty perfection.

Top with vanilla ice cream (my fav) or reddi-wip (hubby’s fav) and enjoy!
