15 Jun Peach Pie & Cobbler

Cobbler Crust Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup ice water

Peach Filling Ingredients:

  • 3 pounds peaches
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 stick butter

Directions:

  1. Slice the peaches and combine with the lemon and orange juice to prevent discoloration.
  2. In a bowl, combine the sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cornstarch.
  3. Put peaches and butter in a non-aluminum pan. Heat until butter is melted, then stir in the sugar mixture. Remove from heat.
  4. For cobbler: Roll half of dough into 1/4″ thickness. Cut into 1/2″ wide strips. Pour filling into pan and cover top with lattice-woven strips. Sprinkle with sugar then melted butter.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes and then at 350 degrees 35-40 minutes until crust is light brown and cobbler is bubbly.

Makes 7 pounds cobbler. 10-12 servings.

Note: This same filling can be used to make a pie. You can use a full crust or the lattice-woven strip crust.
