Peach Cobbler

Helping us usher in the last days of summer.

With the last of our local summer peaches we made the best cobbler you can. Ina Garten inspires us, but we always end up tweaking things here and there…

For The Peaches:

8-10 large peaches peeled and cut into wedges

1/3 C orange juice (freshly squeezed)

1/2 t grated orange zest

3 T cornstarch

3/4 C sugar

1 T butter

• In a medium saucepan stir the sugar, cornstarch, OJ, zest and butter together and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until it thickens. Pour over cut peaches.

• Spray with cooking spray (or butter) a baking dish. We used a rectangular 8 1/2 × 11 1/2 × 2” dish.

For The Topping:

1 C all-purpose flour

3/4 C sugar, plus 2 tablespoons, divided

1 t baking powder

3/4 t kosher salt

12 T (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, 1/2 inch diced

2 large eggs

1 t pure vanilla extract

Vanilla Ice Cream, such as Blue Bell, for serving

• Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper

• For the topping, put the flour, 3/4 cup sugar, the baking powder, and salt into a food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse to combine. Add the butter and pulse 15-20 times, until it’s pea sized. In a small bowl, beat the eggs and vanilla, add to the food processor. Pulse just until the mixture is evenly moistened. Spoon dollops of the dough onto the peaches. It won’t cover the peaches completely, but spoon it out evenly and it will melt as it bakes and cover the peach filling perfectly.

• Combine: 2 tablespoons sugar and 1\4 t cinnamon and sprinkle on top.

Put the dish on the prepared sheet pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, cover loosely with a large sheet of aluminum if it starts getting too brown. Bake until the topping springs back in the middle when lightly touched. The edges and the middle should spring back in the same way. Allow to cool for 30 minutes (I know! But it’s too hot.) serve warm with ice cream.

And as usual and for always, Ina Garten is “the man”.
