Ingredients
  

Peach Filling

  • 6 tbsp. butter melted, plus additional for the dutch oven
  • 3 lbs. ripe peaches 5-6 large ones or 8-9 medium/small
  • c. honey
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger

Topping

  • ¾ c. sugar
  • c. flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ c. milk

Instructions
 

  • Start by heating your oven to 350°F and placing the butter into the bottom of the dutch oven and placing this into the oven. Allow the butter to melt in the dutch oven. When it's melted, remove from the oven.
  • Peel the peaches! You can do this easily by bringing a large pot of water to a boil and preparing an ice bath. When the water is boiling, gently lower the peaches into the pot and boil for 1 minute before removing the peaches and putting them into the ice bath. The skin should now easily peel off the flesh.
  • Once the peaches have been peeled, cut into slices about ⅓" thick and place in a large bowl. Add the honey, cornstarch, vanilla, cinnamon, and ginger to the bowl and stir to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. Then whisk in the milk and slowly pour the batter over the melted butter. DON'T STIR. Next, gently spoon the peaches and juice over the top of the batter. Then bake for 50-60 minutes or until the topping is golden brown on the edges and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. The topping is going to naturally rise up over the peaches so you have a beautiful cobbler on top of the fruit. Serve with whipped cream, ice cream, or even a dash of heavy cream and enjoy!
