Recipe: Eleanor's Easy Peach Cobbler

I was able to share this recipe with a table of grateful friends at a birthday party. Homemade jam makes it even better.

Filling:
    • 1 pint peach jam

OR:

    • 3 pounds peaches, halved, pitted, and sliced into wedges, mixed with 2/3 cup sugar and 2 tablespoons bleached, all-purpose flour

Topping:
    • 2 cups bleached all-purpose flour
    • 6 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 1/2 sticks of butter (12 ounces), melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a deep-dish, nine-inch pie pan and fill with the peach jam or peach-sugar-flour mixture. To make the topping, combine flour and sugar in a medium bowl; stir well. Stir in melted butter. Using your hands, combine mixture and break into quarter to half-inch crumbs.

Scatter crumble topping evenly on peach filling. Place pan in middle rack of oven and bake for 30 minutes.
