Chilton County Peach Cobbler

Thursday, July 20, 2006

Av and I had such a nice little "mostly 100-mile" (from the last post) supper tonight - I made chicken piccata (with local free-range chicken), and we had bell peppers (from the organic farm) for our vegetable. This afternoon, I picked up some gorgeous, sweet-smelling Chilton County peaches (Chilton County is where they have the famous peach water tower!), and decided to make a cobbler with them for dessert. This is my own recipe, enough for four to six servings.

8 small/medium-size peaches (soft...not too soft, but not at all hard)
1/6 c. sugar plus more to sprinkle over the top
1 c. flour
1/2 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
6 tbsp. butter (4 tbsp. for the dough, 2tbsp. for the peaches)
1/2 c. buttermilk

Directions:Preheat the oven to 400*
Peel, pit, and slice the peaches into bite-size pieces.
Add the peaches to a baking dish and add the 1/6 c. sugar, and stir.
Take 2 tbsp. butter cut into small pieces and dot over the top of the peaches.

In the Cuisinart, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the 4 tbsp. butter and process until it starts to resemble coarse meal.
Pour in the buttermilk, and process until it comes together into something of a sticky ball.
Take the dough out and place it over the peaches in the baking dish. Stretch/mash/push it over the peaches to form a cover, and sprinkle a little more sugar all over the top of the dough:

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the top is a nice golden brown:

Serve warm (add vanilla ice cream if you like!):
