peach cobbler and roasted garlic…. not together…

So when husband and I 1st got married he would talk about how much he loved peach cobbler and how his mom used to make it for him. blah blah blah. I broke down and hustled the lady for her recipe. here it is.

M.I.L. peach cobbler.

1/2 Cup sugar

1 tsp lemon juice

1 Tbls cornstarch

1/4 tsp cinnamon

4 Cups sliced peaches

1 Cup flour

3 Tbls shortening

1 Tbls sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 Cup milk

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix 1/2 cup sugar, the cornstarch and cinnamon in 2 qt. sauce pan. Stir in peaches and lemon juice. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute. Pour into ungreased 2 qt. casserole; keep peach mixture hot in oven.

Cut shortening into flour, 1 tbls sugar, baking powder and salt until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in milk. Drop dough by 6 spoonfuls onto hot peach mixture. Bake until topping is golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream!

I made this again tonight. It is so good and so simple and easy.  I use frozen peaches ( defrosted of course) But I have used canned and it turns out just as good.

I also made some devilishly good roasted garlic smashed potatoes.

step one chop  the top of the garlic off. About a quarter of an inch in to the cloves.  wrap the whole thing in foil and bake at 400° for 30 min or until squishy. I do not recommend doing this at the same time your cobbler is cooking. you risk having garlicky peach cobbler. Uhm thats not yummy.

When i t is cool enough to handle squeeze the goodness out of the whole massive garlic then smash into some taters. MMM Oh add butter and milk… and whatever else you like in your taters. Ova heeya we like a little cream cheese. mmmm i think i am hungry again and need to go eat some left overs.
