Peach Cobbler and the Newlyweds

We had a very busy weekend.  The curly haired boy and our new DIL arrived on August 4 and toured around the state.  They came home on last Thursday and we had a little party for them on Friday night.  The menu was pulled porkcabbage salad, Dave made beans, fresh melon, Donna brought a selection of fresh veggies, and this peach cobbler for dessert.

Melt the butter right in the pan

This is one of those easy desserts that comes together easily, tastes delicious alone or with a topping, and you can make multiples quickly.  I made three for the night and I buy a case of these disposable pans so it is easy to do dishes afterwards...just toss when they are empty.
Pour the batter over the butter, no stirring
We had a conveyer system down.  The chick cut the fruit, I mixed the batter while the butter was melting, we threw it all together and let it bake.  We had three finished in no time.

The chick and her excellent knife skills.
Add the peaches to the top and toss in the oven.
We had about 20 people over on Friday.  It was fun visiting with everyone.  It was especially fun to have the house filled with laughter, I do miss having all my kids home.
Baked to golden perfection.
Easy Peach Cobbler
adapted from All-recipes
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 cup milk, I used almond milk
4-5 large peaches

Preheat oven to 350°F.
In 9x13" pan, melt butter in oven.
While butter is melting, peel and cut peaches in slices and then half the slices.
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and milk, pour over melted butter, do not stir.  Top with sliced peaches.  Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Bake for 30-45 minutes until the batter is cooked through, using a cake tester or toothpick to check the middle for doneness.  The tester should come out clean, with a few moist crumbs.
Enjoy with whipped cream or ice-cream.
