Peach Cobbler


8 fresh peaches - peeled, pitted  and sliced into thin wedges

¼ cup white sugar

¼ cup brown sugar

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons cornstarch

1 cup all-purpose flour

¼ cup white sugar

¼ cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons unsalted butter,  chilled and cut into small pieces

¼ cup boiling water


Step 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

Step 2. In a large bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup  brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Toss  to coat evenly, and pour into a 2 quart baking dish. Bake in preheated oven  for 10 minutes.

Step 3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup white  sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in butter with  your fingertips, or a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Stir in water until just combined.

Step 4. Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of topping over  them. Sprinkle entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Bake until  topping is golden, about 30 minutes.
