Peach Cobbler

  • 1 c. lightly packed brown sugar
  • 6 c. sliced fresh peaches
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 4 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 piece (3 inches) stick cinnamon
  • 3 T. granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 c. chilled margarine
  • 1 tsp. grated lemon peel
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1 1/4 c. half and half

Combine the brown sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Stir in the peaches, cloves, and cinnamon. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is clear and comes to boiling. Cover and cook over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the whole spices. Cover and keep warm.

Blend the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Cut in the margarine until the crumbs are fine. Add the lemon peel and milk; mix lightly with a fork until just combined. Bring the fruit mixture to boiling and pour into a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Drop tablespoons of batter onto the fruit mixture, spacing evenly.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes. To serve, pour half and half over individual servings of warm cobbler.
