Fresh Peach Cobbler

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Radio Reno, Jul 28, 2007.

  1. A few weeks back there was a thread with some ideas for fresh berries. I have a good crop of fresh peaches this year and was looking for a good cobbler receipe. My grandmother made one in a cast iron skillet with Bisquick batter mix that was like heaven. I can't seem to get it right. Wish someone would have written that down. Any thoughts?

  2. I took the family blackberry picking yesterday & picked a few gallons. My wife makes a mean cobbler. First covers them with water in a pot & cooks them until the berries loose their color. Then mashes & strains them through cheesecloth or a metal screen strainer. This gets rid of all the little seeds. Add sugar to taste & heat until dissolved. Then she pours them into baking pans and drops spoonfuls of Bisquick dough/ batter into the juice. Then Roll out some dough and lay out a criss/cross pattern on top . She then brushes the top with egg & bakes until browned. Great stuff. Just warmed some up for breakfast. Also froze alot of berries. Freeze singly on cookie sheets & pour into freezer bags, lasts all year.

    i couldn't stand it any longer.had to bake one this morning and woofed down a big piece:D
    i have a real sweet tooth so i add a little extra sugar to the batter and peaches.also always add vanilla to the batter.
    i almost forgot how good that stuff was:D
     
  10. I just wanted to remind you that I hate you. :p Sounds good but like I said I don't care too much for peaches. I'll leave a key under the mat and you can come on down and fix me up a nice apple cobbler for desert for tomorrow. Laura and I would both appreciate it. :D

    This thread inspired me to make a peach cobbler last night. The only thing, the peaches weren't ripe enough and were still had a little "bite" to them. Got a topping recipe from mom - super easy and tasty!! Scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. YUM!!!!

    couple more cups of sugar will solve that:D :D

    ps........let's hear the topping recipe.

    If I could have let them bake a while longer (crust was browned) I think they would have softened up more. By bite I meant "tender crisp". The flavor was outstanding!! We had an entire hillbilly supper and that cobbler was the best part!

    The recipe - from memory here :D.

    Peaches:
    I had about 8 peaches sliced up.
    about a cup of sugar
    about 1/4 cup cornstarch
    pinch of salt
    (Mix the sugar and cornstarch together before putting over fruit to avoid clumping)

    Crust:
    2 cups flour
    2 Tb sugar
    2 t baking powder
    1/2 t salt
    4 Tb butter

    Mix the dry ingredients together then cut in the butter until mixture is "mealy".

    Add 1/2 - 3/4 cup milk until the consistancy of drop biscuit dough (nice and sticky).

    Drop chunks of dough over the fruit and bake 30-40 minutes at 350.

    Good idea mushroomman!!!

    Mom said she puts a little cinnamon in the fruit but I wasn't to keen on that idea. Nutmeg would be perfect.
