sliced fresh peaches
grated lemon zest
1 1/2 cups
My family loved this recipe. I used 4 cups of fresh peaches (which are easy to peel by dipping in boiling water for about 20 seconds and then dipping in cold water). I substituted vanilla for almond extract.
I wasn't too terribly impressed with this version of cobbler. Firstly, I felt it was to "eggy" tasting and secondly the juice from the peaches made it watery. I should have tossed the peaches with either flour or cornstarch before I placed them in the pan. As written, the topping seemed rather bland, so I added cinnamon for some extra flavor. Next time I'll leave out the egg and make more of a crumb topping and also use brown sugar along with the white. With a few adjustments this recipe has a lot of potential.
I thought it was delicious and not too hard or long to make. I already had all the ingredients at the house which made it easier too! One note about the directions...in step 2, after mixing the sugar, lemon, etc. Spread on top of peaches and put all in the oven while making the shortcake.
This Peach Cobbler really is good. I did not have Lemon Zest and Almond Extract. Instead, I decreased the sugar to 1/2 cup and added 1 tablespoon Vanilla to the dough. My family thought, it was sweet enough - and the taste of the Peaches was not hidden under Sweetness.
This was great! The only thing I did differently was to add about a tsp of cinnamon and a 1/4 tsp of nutmeg to the shortbread batter. I would definitely make this again!
I recommend adding this to your repertoire of recipes for desserts using fresh peaches! I doubled the ingredients in order to bake the cobbler in a 9x13 pyrex dish. I used my food processor to quickly mix the biscuit crust. So easy, so yummy. Be sure to have vanilla ice cream or whipped cream as a topping. Your family will love it.
I used 4-5 cups peaches and only 2/3 c.sugar(1/3 c brown sugar;1/3 white) plus 1/2 t. vanilla. For topping sugar I added a sprinkling of nutmeg. This is very good warm with milk.
The filling was great. Tossed it with a little flour per previous suggestions. Also sprinkled extra sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon on topping but it just wasn't very good in general. Am trying to find some kind of streusel cobbler topping...none of the batter ones I've made have been very good. oh...used 8 fresh peaches and it made a big 9x13 pan..glad I didn't double the batter.
