This fresh-from-the-oven cobbler, loaded with juicy cooked fruit and topped with flaky golden biscuits takes us right back to Grandma's house.


Ingredients

  • 8 cups sliced peaches , cut 1 in. thick (8 to 10 medium)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 4 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg , (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Biscuit

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter , melted

Instructions

  • PREHEAT oven to 350F. Place an 8 × 8-in. square baking dish on a baking sheet.
  • FILLING: Toss peaches, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, nutmeg and salt in the baking dish.
  • BISCUIT: Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Stir milk and butter in a small bowl with a fork, then stir into flour mixture until just combined. Dollop large spoonfuls of batter over fruit, flattening them slightly but without covering all the peaches.
  • BAKE until topping is golden and fruit is bubbling, about 1 hr, covering with foil after 45 min if biscuit is browning too quickly. Let cool 20 min, then serve warm.

Tips

  1. Gently lift the middle biscuit to check that topping is cooked through.
  2. The biscuit will absorb the juices from the fruit as it cools. A cobbler is best enjoyed warm and juicy, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
