Ingredients

Peaches

  • 8 peaches pitted and sliced (the original recipe notes that the peaches should be peeled, but I got lazy and didn't)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice I omitted
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Crust

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter chilled and cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 3 Tablespoons granulated sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon I used Penzey's cinnamon sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the ingredients for the peaches. Toss to coat, then pour into a baking dish. Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine some of the ingredients for the crust: flour, sugars, baking powder, and salt. Blend in the butter with your fingertips or a pastry blender until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Finally, stir in the water until just combined.
  • Remove the peaches from the oven and drop spoonfulls of the crust mixture over the top. Sprinkle the entire cobbler with the sugar/cinnamon mixture and bake for 30 minutes until bubbly.
