What do you need to know about making a simple cobbler? Well it is very simple indeed folks, so simple and…simple. If you go to Youtube you'll find a lot of videos on making cobblers. So why am I repeating what others are saying or how they make a cobbler? I don't know…maybe it's because I haven't written a blog for a while and found time tonight to do it, by the way I am in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii writing this blog post, and it's kind of chilly for a local boy here, I think it's like 63 degrees outside.

Anyhow, let's look at some of the ingredients for a cobbler, and I'll use peaches for this one. And this will take about an hour or so give or take a few minutes, maybe you are quick with your hands, maybe you're slow with your hands, maybe you need to pick junior up at school and have to leave this for a while, you get the picture.

Here we go folks!

7-8 fresh organic peaches cleaned and cut into some wedges
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of white sugar
1/2 tsp. of cinnamon powder
1/4 tsp. of nutmeg powder
2 tsp. of lime or lemon juice
2 tsp. arrow root or cornstarch

1 cup AP flour
1/4 white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. or so of baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 stick of unsalted butter, chilled and minced
about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of boiling water

Mix 3 tbsp. of sugar with a good tsp. of cinnamon powder

1. Preheat oven to 425 deg. F.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the peaches, 1/4 cup of the white sugar, 1/4 cup of the brown sugar, the 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder, lime or lemon juice, arrowroot. Mix to coat well, and place it inside of an 8x8 inch baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
3. In a larger bowl mix flour, 1/4 cup of white sugar, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, baking powder and salt, and mix in the butter with your fingers, until the mixture becomes like bread crumbs.
4. Take out peaches from oven, and drop some of the crumbled flour mixure over the peaches, with the sugar and cinnamon mixture, return pan to oven and bake for half an hour.

There a simple peach cobbler, not bad for a kid from the islands..okay so I ain't  some southern cook, but I love me some cobbler from time to time.

Take it easy!
