Updated: Easy Peach Cobbler




So, the other day I was craving peach cobbler. I really love peach cobbler. I really love peaches. This is one of my favorite times of year just because peaches are fresh. As much as I love making cobbler with fresh peaches, sometimes you just don't have the time or the ingredients to do so. That's where canned pie filling comes in handy.

I found a recipe online that I adapted because I just wanted to make enough cobbler for my husband and me. The original recipe was for a 13 by 9 inch pan, but I wanted to use my 10 Vision Corning Ware frying pan.




Ingredients:
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
ground cinnamon to taste
1 can peach pie filling
Cooking:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Melt butter in a 10 round pan or 8x8 square baking dish.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Add milk, stirring until moist.
Pour the batter into the pan with the butter. 
Pour the can of pie filling over the batter
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until the cobbler starts to turn brown
Realistically you should be able to get 8 slices of cobbler, but Charles and I only got 4 deliciously large slices. 





Edit: I made this again today but instead of canned pie filling I used fresh peaches. Here's what you will need to make your filling.
Peach filling:
3 large firm peaches peeled and sliced into large chunks
2 Tbs sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbs bourbon
Peel and slice the peaches into a bowl.
Add sugar, cinnamon, and bourbon. Toss together until peaches are coated.




Let the peaches macerate in the sugar mix while you mix together the topping.
