With summer coming to a close, we found ourselves lucky enough to have a huge box of peaches. We cut some to freeze for the winter, nibbled on some as we cut, and then we went searching for a dessert to make for Cindy’s peach lovinghubby.

Peach Cobbler | Paula Deen
When we saw this Paula Deen recipe and the 1,637 postive reviews, we knew we found the one. And it did not disappoint! It requires few ingredients (like we LOVE), is easy to assemble (like we LOVE, and produces lots of  MMMMMMM (which we LOVE). So go ahead, pick up some peaches and feel the love!

Bring the peaches, sugar and water to a boil then simmer for 10 minutes.

Make sure the flour you use is SELF RISING! This can easily be found in the baking aisle.

The recipe calls for a 3 quart baking dish. We decided to use these little crocks for individual cobblers. Put the butter in each and set in a pre-heated oven to melt the butter.

After about 5-8 minutes, remove the bakeware from the oven.

After mixing the flour, sugar and milk, pour over the melted butter. Since we were using individual crocks, we just poured the batter evenly into each. We filled it not quite 1/4 of the way up. DO NOT STIR

Spoon the peaches evenly into each crock. If you use one baking dish, spoon the peaches on top and gently add the syrup.

Sprinkle a little cinnamon and bake for 30 – 45 minutes. These crocks took only 25 minutes. The batter will rise to the top and a little may bubble over. We used a cookie sheet under our bakeware to prevent a mess in the oven.

Top it with a little ice cream and enjoy!

Here’s the recipe:
Ingredients
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

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine 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 to 45 minutes.

To serve, scoop onto a plate and serve with your choice of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
