Peach Cobbler Recipe

I promised to post the recipe for the Peach Cobbler that I served at the party. It is a great recipe from an old neighbor. My family loves it and I hope that you do too!

4 C peaches, sliced (fresh are best)
1/2 C butter
3 1/2 C sugar
2 C flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 C milk
2 T cornstarch
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
2 C boiling water

Place peaches in 9x13 baking dish. Cream butter and 1 1/2 cup sugar. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add to cream mixture alternately with milk. Spoon mixture over fruit.

Sift or mix 2 cups of sugar with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and nutmeg. Sprinkle this mixture over batter.

Pour boiling water over top. (Yes....that sounds strange but it works. Makes a nice crust over the top) Bake at 350* for 1 hour. You may need to bake longer-check for gooey center and color of crust. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. YUMMY!
