Peach Cobbler

I got this recipe from the food network website and it's by Paula Deen. I "tweeked" it a little bit though... Little Bird is my baking mascot (she also doubles as my salt shaker).

Step 1: prepare the peaches.

4 cups peeled, sliced peaches (I eyeballed it and peeled 5 peaches)
1 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup water

Combine the peaches, sugar, vanilla, and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.

Step 2: preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 3: melt the butter.

8 tbsp butter
1/2 large lemon

Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish (I used a 2-quart glass dish to get really thick pieces) and place in oven to melt. Once it's melted, squeeze a half of a fresh lemon over the butter.

Step 4: prepare the cobbler.

1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp baking soda

Mix all the ingredients together until it's blended and smooth.
Pour mixture slowly over melted butter. Don't stir it. Spoon fruit on top and then gently pour in the syrup. (Batter will rise to top during baking like MAGIC.

Step 5: put it in the oven.

Bake for 30 to 45 minutes (I know this is a huge gap, but all ovens are not created equal). Check it at 30 and then monitor... take it out when you can see the juices bubbling and the top is browning. Then, relax and let it cool for a couple of hours.

Step 6: serve your peachy treat!

To serve, scoop onto a plate and serve with your choice of whipped cream and/or vanilla ice cream.
