A visit to the Hot Springs Farmers Market revealed a great surprise: newly picked Arkansas peaches! It’s the first crop of the season, and a week early. Today’s guests at Lookout Point enjoyed an appetizer of fresh Arkansas peaches, blueberries, topped with a splash of cream and mint sprig. Oh, the peaches are so sweet, with a heavenly fragrance. Not it’s time to make peach cobbler.
The farmer from whom I bought the peaches joyfully provided his best recipe for Fresh Peach Cobbler. I made a batch, and it’s so easy and yummy. Enjoy!
3/4 stick butter
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup all purpose unbleached flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
dash of salt
3/4 cup milk
2 cups peaches, peeled and sliced
Melt butter in a 2 quart deep baking or casserole dish.
In a small bowl combine sugar, flour, baking powder, satl, and milk. Whisk until well mixed. Pour this batter over the melted butter. Do not stir.
Combine peaches with another 1/2 cup sugar (or less, if peaches are sweet). Spoon peaches over batter. Do not stir.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Serves 8. Or one, if it’s the first fresh peach cobbler of the season. 🙂
