Fresh Peach Cobbler

I know, it's 3 o'clock in the afternoon, but I am totally munching on a bowl full of peach cobbler right now.  I won't deny it...just don't tell my husband.  ha!  We had picked some peaches at a local orchard this past weekend and they needed to be eaten.  I love ripe, juicy peaches right off the tree, for lunch, a snack, etc.  But I would totally rather have them covered in sugar and surrounded by a light, sweet, buttery batter.  You, too?  See, I'm not crazy.  I remember asking my mom to make me a peach cobbler instead of a birthday cake one year for my birthday.  And I think I was 13, so I totally knew what I was doing!  I love warm desserts...and don't even think about asking me if I want ice cream on top of my cobbler.  I take after my father in that aspect, because I don't want the ice cream to "ruin" (his word, not mine) my cobbler.  (Can ice cream really ruin things?  I don't know.)  If I'm eating something warm and delicious, I don't want any ice cream "freezing" it up!!   Enjoy my most favorite dessert ever!!

Fresh Peach Cobbler
6-8 servings

6 Tbsp. butter
3/4 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
dash salt
3/4 cup milk
2 cups sugar, divided
2 cups sliced peaches

Preheat oven to 350.  Place butter in bottom of a deep baking dish and place in the oven to melt.  In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt.  Add milk; stir well.  Pour batter over melted butter.  DO NOT STIR.  Combine peaches with remaining sugar and spoon over batter.  Again, DO NOT STIR.  Bake for 1 hour and serve warm.

I guess you could scoop some ice cream on top...but only if you want to "ruin" it!!  :)
