This was the first time I made this peach cobbler. It was a combination of 3 or 4 other recipes that I had found. It turned out beautifully! I had 2 lbs. of peaches so I wish I had put this is in a larger pan and doubled the crust ingredients.
1 stick of butter ¾ cup sugar
¾ cup flour ¾ cup milk
1 tsp. baking powder 5 medium peaches
¼ tsp. salt ¼ tsp. nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the stick of butter into a 2 qt. baking dish and place in oven until butter is melted.
Place the peaches into a small pot. Add 1 cup water and ¾ cup sugar. Cook on medium heat until syrupy. Remove from heat.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add sugar and milk to flour mixture until smooth.
Add this mixture to the 2 qt. baking dish when butter is melted.
Slowly add the peaches and syrup into the baking dish. Do not stir them after they are in the baking dish, because you will want the crust to rise to the top and cover the peaches.
Cook for 60 -75 minutes, checking often at the end.
