Homemade Peach Cobbler

Written by Amanda Quimby, CVB Marketing Director
Recipe provided by Delinda Coleman

One thing we all love about summer is the yummy dishes and desserts made with fresh, hand-picked Ruston peaches! And our administrative assistant's mother has the perfect recipe for homemade peach cobbler. Thanks for sharing with us, Ms. Delinda! 

5-6 medium fresh peaches, sliced 
1 stick butter or margarine
1 ¼ cup sugar 
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup whole or 2% milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Melt butter in 9x11 dish. In a small saucepan, combine peaches, lemon juice and ¼ cup sugar. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. 

Pour peaches into the dish with the butter. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour and 1 cup sugar. Whisk in milk until creamy. Add vanilla. Pour mixture into dish with peaches and butter.

Place into preheated oven. Cook for 35-45 minutes, until dough just starts to become firm.
Remove from oven and sprinkle top with ¼ cup sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon (if desired).

Place back in oven under broiler to brown the top. Do not leave it because it will get too brown fast!

Serve hot with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
