Paula Deen's Peach Cobbler

This Thanksgiving was celebrated between my family and Duncan's family.  Since I love cooking, I wanted to try a new recipe, along with some traditional ones.  I wanted to do sweet potato pie, but unfortunately, only a few people like sweet potatoes, so I had to nix the Thanksgiving-themed dessert.  Peach cobbler seemed to be the winner for everyone.  And, so, I baked.

4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
2 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup water
8 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 cups milk
Ground cinnamon, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combines the peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well. 

Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.  Remove from the heat.

Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt. 

Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping.  Pour mixture over melted butter.  Do not stir.  Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup.

Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon, if using.

 Batter will rise to top during baking.  Bake for 30-45 minutes.

We served this with french vanilla ice cream.  I am such a fan of a hot dessert with cold ice cream.  Mm, delicioso!  

Everyone loved this recipe and Duncan has asserted that this should become a new Thanksgiving tradition -- I love traditions!

Enjoy, my friends!
