JAMES JONES' PEACH COBBLER
For the filling:
2 cups of fresh or frozen peaches, sliced
(or one 16-ounce can)
1 stick of unsalted butter (at room temperature)
1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
2 tablespoons of heavy cream
For the topping:
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of buttermilk
1 cup of self-rising flour
For the preparing:
An oven, preheated to 350 degrees
One 9x9 casserole dish or pie plate
One big mixing bowl (the bigger the better)
A wire whisk
A plastic spatula or spoon
Spray your casserole dish with pan spray.
In your big mixing bowl, add in the sugar, buttermilk, and flour for the topping. Whisk all this together until it's all combined. Pour the mixture into your casserole dish. Don't worry too much about scraping the bowl clean (the peaches will pick up whatever remains of the batter)
Next, using the same bowl, add in your peaches, butter, sugar, dark brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and cream. Gently mix up the ingredients using your plastic spatula or spoon.
With your spatula or spoon, pour the entire mixture evenly over the top of your batter. This time you will want to cleanly scrape out all that remains into the cobbler.
Place the dish in the middle rack of your oven and bake until golden brown. This usually takes 45 minutes to an hour. My rule is to set the timer at 45 minutes and then cook it in ten-minute intervals until its ready to go.
Once the golden brown status has been achieved, remove cobbler from the oven and allow it to cool at least 30 minutes. Serve immediately, but take caution, this peach cobbler is filled with Delicious Goodness, and as such is highly addictive.
*Apples or Pears can be substituted for the peaches if you enjoy those better or have them on hand.
