Uncle James' Peach Cobbler

Uncle James' Peach Cobbler
When the men of our family cook, it is always a godsend to the women and children. When our men cook... we cook!

One of the favorite dishes Uncle James was famous for was his Peach Cobbler and a big bowl of vanilla ice cream. It's undoubtedly seventh heaven. Crust:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup milk or water

Mix all ingredients together. Kneed into a ball. Roll out 2/3 of dough and place into a pan.

  • 3 cups peaches (canned or fresh)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. ground mace
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

Mix all ingredients together.

You will not need to add any liquid to the peaches as they will make their own juice.

Pour mixture into pie pan. Place about 4 to 6 slices of butter on top of the mixture before you add the top to it.

Roll out the remaining dough and place on top of the pie. Insert holes into the pie top.

You may want to lightly brush the top of your pie with milk, sugar, and butter.

Bake at 375 degrees for one hour.
