Happy Independence Day! and Peach Cobbler


Happy Independence Day, Everyone! I hope you're taking this opportunity to thank God for the blessings we have living in a country that's free and for the brave men and women who have and are giving their lives so we can remain so.

I feel our personal liberties are being slowly eroded away so we must be ever vigilant and prayerful.

Now about this hot, bubbly delight.....
Mmmm, remember these peaches? Well, as promised, here's the cobbler...still bubbling and hot from the oven. I used the Perfect Pie Crust recipe here and cut it into uneven strips. I just think it makes it look more homemade.

The recipe for the cobbler filling is super simple:

8-10 c. fresh peaches, washed, peeled and sliced
2 c. sugar
4-6 T. cornstarch (depending on the juiciness of your peaches)
1/2 t. freshly grated nutmeg
1 t. vanilla
3 T. butter

Place sliced peaches into a 13x9 baking pan. Mix sugar, cornstarch, nutmeg together in a small bowl. Sprinkle over peaches. Drizzle vanilla over peach mixture. Toss peaches gently, dot with butter. Cover with strips of pie crust or leave the crust whole and cut vent holes with a knife.

Bake at 450 degrees for about 25-30 min. or until the peaches are tender. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

Yum!

Blessings!!

Goodness, Charlene!!! You are making me hungry for some peach cobbler and I just got done eating some ribs, mac&cheese and baked beans {rolls eyes}. I think I'll have to create a folder on my computer with the best ever Charlene recipes :D:D:D:D. I think I'll have to stop at the store tomorrow after church and pick up some peaches (I know they won't be as good as the ones you've used ;D) Thanks for sharing the recipe and yes, you are right about keeping in prayer and counting our blessings. Be blessed, Sabrina

Oh, YES! So glad you mentioned the nutmeg, I've never tried it with peaches before. This is an awesomely beautiful creation, almost a shame to cut and eat!
