This peach cobbler recipe comes from my mom, and it is a family favorite recipe she made for us all the time growing up!

The best part about it is that it literally takes 5 minutes to throw together! My mom often used a quart jar of homemade canned peaches, but you can also use fresh peaches!

Ingredients:

2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons white sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup shortening

1 egg

¼ cup of cold water

3 pounds fresh peaches – peeled, pitted, and sliced

¼ cup lemon juice

¾ cup of orange juice

½ cup butter

2 cups white sugar

½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 tablespoon white sugar

1 tablespoon butter, melted

Directions:

In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, and salt. Work in the shortening with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and cold water. Sprinkle over flour mixture, and work with hands to form dough into a ball. Chill 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Roll out half of the dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Place in a 9×13 inch baking dish, covering the bottom and halfway upsides.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

In a large saucepan, mix the peaches, lemon juice, and orange juice. Add 1/2 cup butter, and cook over medium-low heat until butter is melted.

In a mixing bowl, stir together 2 cups sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cornstarch; mix into peach mixture. Remove from heat, and pour into baked crust.

Roll remaining dough to a thickness of 1/4 inch. Cut into half-inch-wide strips. Weave strips into a lattice over peaches.

Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar, and drizzle with 1 tablespoon melted butter.

Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until top crust is golden brown.

And Enjoy...!
