Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

I was searching for a peach cobbler recipe that reminded me of the yummy dessert I ate as a young boy in Southeast Missouri. No shortcuts here. Fresh peaches and homemade crust...but worth every minute! Absolutely delicious served warm with vanilla ice cream! Never any leftovers with this dessert!

  •     2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  •     3 tablespoons white sugar
  •     1 teaspoon salt
  •     1 cup shortening
  •     1 egg
  •     1/4 cup cold water
  •     3 pounds fresh peaches - peeled, pitted and sliced
  •     1/4 cup lemon juice
  •     3/4 cup orange juice
  •     1/2 cup butter
  •     2 cups white sugar
  •     1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  •     1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  •     1 tablespoon cornstarch
  •     1 tablespoon white sugar
  •     1 tablespoon butter, melted


In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, and salt. Work in the shortening with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and cold water. Sprinkle over flour mixture, and work with hands to form dough into a ball. Chill 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Roll out half of dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Place in a 9x13 inch baking dish, covering bottom and halfway up sides. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

In a large saucepan, mix the peaches, lemon juice, and orange juice. Add 1/2 cup butter, and cook over medium-low heat until butter is melted. In a mixing bowl, stir together 2 cups sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cornstarch; mix into peach mixture. Remove from heat, and pour into baked crust.

Roll remaining dough to a thickness of 1/4 inch. Cut into half-inch-wide strips. Weave strips into a lattice over peaches. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar, and drizzle with 1 tablespoon melted butter.
Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until top crust is golden brown.
