Ingredients for the Peach Cobbler
4 pounds of peaches, peeled and sliced
3.5 cups of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
Juice of one lemon
1/2 teaspoon of almond extract
How to Make the Cobbler
Peel the peaches, by placing them in boiling water with a slit in the skin for just a few minutes, till the skins peel back slightly.
Remove from the boiling water and place in a cold water bath. Quickly remove the skins and slice the peaces.
Place the peaches in a large bowl with the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Place the peach mixture in a buttered 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Place four pats of butter on top of the peaches.
Cover with the pie dough and seal all the edges. Fold the dough over the edge of the baking pan and turn under the edges.
With a fork or small paring knife, make some incissions in the dough for air.
Brush the top of the pie crust with some melted butter and sprinkle with some cinnamon and sugar.
Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 45-60 minutes.
Let the cobbler set for 20 minutes, before cutting and serve warm with some homemade ice cream. See the recipe below.
Perfect Pie Crust
Place two cups of flour in the food processor with 6 tablespoon of shortening and 1 stick of butter that is cold and cut into chunks. Add in a pinch of salt and pulse until the mixture is very fine. Slowly add in 1/4 cup of ice cold water. Keep pulsing till the mixture forms a ball. Remove from the food processor and knead slightly and put in the refrigerator for one hour.
