Fresh Peach Cobbler II

Simple old-fashioned peach cobbler; just like Grandma used to make. Tastes great.

Original recipe makes 1 – 8×8 inch dish


3 cups sliced fresh peaches
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon almond extract

1 tablespoon white sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8×8 inch square baking dish.
  2. Place sliced peaches in prepared baking dish. Mix together 1 cup sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, and almond extract. Place in oven while preparing shortcake (heating peaches first helps prevent dough from getting soggy).
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk and egg; stir just until flour is moistened. Spread over hot peaches. Sprinkle top with remaining sugar.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until top is golden brown.
