Mary’s Peach Cobbler

Prep: 40 minutes Bake: 20 minutes Cool: 1 hour Oven: 400°F 6 servings

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
11/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
¼ cup butter or margarine
6 cups peach slices
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 egg
1/4 cup milk

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. For topping, in a medium bowl stir together flour, the 2 table spoons sugar, the baking powder, salt, and, if desired, cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside.

2. For filling, in a saucepan combine 1/3 to 2/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup water, and 1 tablespoon cornstarch. Stir in 5 cups peach slices. Cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly.

3. In a small bowl stir together egg and milk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened. Transfer hot filling to a 2-quart square baking dish. Using a spoon, immediately drop topping into six mounds on top of filling.

4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Let cool in pan on a wire rack about 1 hour.
