Peach and Cinnamon Cobbler

In an attempt to bribe my husband to watch the premier of "The Next Food Network Star" tonight I made him peach cobbler, something he has been wanting me to make but I just never anyway, this week at work we had a book sale and they had "The Deen Bros." cookbook so I bought it because they had this recipe in it that looked good and many here it goes:


Butter for coating dish


6 cups peaches, halved, pitted, and sliced 1/4 inch thick

3/4 cup sugar

1/4 quick-cooking tapioca

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

Pinch salt

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour, plus additional for dusting
3 1/2 tsp sugar
1 1/2 Tbs baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
6 Tbs cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
2/3 cup heavy cream, plus additional for brushing

1. Preheat over to 350*. Butter a 2 1/2-quart baking dish.

In medium bowl, stir together the filling ingredients

Pour filling into the prepared dish; set aside.

2. For the topping, in a food processor or large bowl, pulse or whisk together the 1 2/3 cups flour, the sugar, baking powder, and salt. Pulse or cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Slowly add the 2/3 cups of cream, mixing until the dough just comes together. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and pat together. Form the dough into 2-inch balls. Flatten balls gently with the palm of your hand.

3. Evenly arrange the dough rounds on top of the filling. Brush a little cream over the rounds. Bake about 1 hour or until the biscuits are golden and the filling is bubbling.

You are the baking queen. :-) Looks good and a nice choice for the spring with lots of fruit! Yum! So did you watch the first episode? I already hate the girl with the "Posh-Katie Holmes" haircut. She seems like an idiot.
