Peach season is definitely a highlight of summer & an old-fashioned peach cobbler hits the spot!
- 4 cups sliced ripe peaches
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 stick butter
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup milk
- cinnamon sugar
- vanilla ice cream (optional)
- whipped cream (optional)
Stir together peaches, 3/4 cup sugar, & salt in a large saucepan. Heat over medium heat until it starts to bubble. Remove from heat.
While the peaches are heating, turn oven to 350 degrees.
Place stick of butter in a 9×13 pan & place in oven. (If the butter is cold, cut into 8 pieces. If it is room temperature, you can cut it or leave it whole.) As the oven heats up, the butter will melt.
Remove pan from oven once the butter has melted.
While the butter melts, stir 1 cup sugar & flour together. Add milk & stir just until blended. There may be small lumps.
When the pan of melted butter is out of the oven, pour the flour mixture into the pan & spread evenly.
Spoon peaches & the juice from the saucepan evenly over the flour & butter.
Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over peaches.
Return pan to oven & bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden & bubbly.
Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
