Mrs. Hastings Peach Cobbler

by Karmel Larson

Here’s my favorite recipe that I’ve acquired this month.  I had to track down Mrs. Hastings, mother of my childhood friend Julie, to get this recipe that was brought to memory by eating a quart of home canned peaches.  (we have 6 peach trees now, so we’ll be eating this one a lot) ENJOY!

Mrs. Hastings Home Canned Peaches Cobbler

Mix together:
1 C sugar
1/2 C soft butter
2 C sifted flour
4 tsp. Baking Powder
1 C Milk
Spread mixture evenly in a 9×13 baking dish.
Drain peaches, and save juice. Over batter, place halved peaches, flat side down. Over fruit, sprinkle  1/2 C sugar. Over all, pour 1 C of reserved fruit juice.

Bake at 375 for 45-50 min.

Great with vanilla ice cream (or mint chocolate chip if you have kids like mine).
