I’m a New Georgia Peach Cobbler

Well, it has been awhile! I still have been cooking, dancing, and singing in the kitchen. However, we have an addition that has joined in on the fun. My beautiful baby boy loves to bounce with Mommy in the kitchen. Also we have a new kitchen, in a new state, where our adventure has continued.
It seemed fitting to make a dessert that honors my new home. Georgia Peaches are just as sweet as all the songs proclaim them to be. This cobbler is so simple. Pop it in the oven when you begin dinner. It will be ready to make its appearance when you are ready for dessert.
Enjoy!
(Thanks for waiting patiently for new recipes! There are more to come between raising my sweet boys and setting up our new home.)

I’m a New Georgia Peach Cobbler

1/2 cup sugar
Juice and rind of 1 lemon
1/4 t almond extract
2 cups sliced and peeled Georgia peaches
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
2 t baking powder
1/2 cup butter, melted

Combine 1/2 cup of sugar, lemon juice, lemon rind, and almond extract in a bowl. Mix well. Sprinkle mixture over peaches. Set peaches aside.
Mix 1 cup sugar, flour, milk, and baking powder in a bowl. Melt butter in a 2 quart baking dish. Spoon the batter into the baking dish. Spread the peach mixture over the top; do not stir.
Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour.
It just seems right to serve this peach cobbler with vanilla bean ice cream.

Merry Christmas Cobbler

Seriously, Cobbler is just happiness.  And top it with ice cream- enough said.  Merry Christmas Cobbler is a holiday favorite in this house.  Basically if you want to taste Christmas- here you go!  Perfect to pop in the oven as you sit down to dinner and it’s ready for dessert.  Serve in fun individual containers.  (This is such a favorite that Chris requested it for his birthday in March!  And we still called it Merry Christmas Cobbler.)
Happy Christmas Eve! -Amanda
