How to make it

  • For the Pastry, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle cold water (one tablespoon at a time) evenly over surface. Stir with a fork until dry ingredients are moistened. Shape into a ball; chill.
  • For Fruit, combine peaches, sugar, flour and nutmeg in a dutch oven or large saucepan; set aside until syrup forms. Bring peach mixture to a boil; reduce heat to low, and cook 10 minutes or until tender. (This can be tricky, because if the peaches cook too long, they will turn to mush once baked in the Cobbler. You want them just tender - the equivalent to pasta al dente). Remove from heat. Add vanilla and butter, stirring until butter melts.
  • Roll half of pastry to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; cut into an 8-inch square. Spoon half of peaches into a lightly buttered 8-inch square pan (I use a 2-quart dish). Top with pastry square. Bake at 475 for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Spoon remaining peaches over baked pastry square.
  • Roll remaining pastry into 1/8-inch thickness, and cut into 1-inch strips. Arrange in a lattice design over peaches. Bake an additional 15 to 18 minutes or until browned.

    Cooky, this is a really good recipe which I made earlier this week. The only thing I did differently was add a little fresh lemon juice and substitute almond extract for the vanilla. Loved the crust,expecially having a middle layer crust! You get my 5 rating for this dish!

    texaswomyn, your comment just reminded me that at least once my mom cut the interior square of dough into circles (probably about 2" across) that she arranged over the first layer of peaches. Thanks for the memory!

    Cooky, I'm so grateful to have found this recipe. For years I've sought a cobbler recipe like my mom's, which had thin dumplings baked inside the fruit. Your's is the first recipe I've found which is similar. I'm going to make it tonight (though I'll use apples). Thanks.
