NOT Grandma’s Georgia Peach Cobbler

Sure, you’ve had peach cobbler before, but I’m willing to bet you’ve never had “NOT Grandma’s Georgia Peach Cobbler!”

I’m going to go out on a limb and tell you that THIS Georgia Peach Cobbler has a few secrets to it that make it by far one of the most delicious peach cobbler deserts you will ever have! Whats the secret behind this magical masterpiece of cobblery goodness? Read below to find out or heck, try it yourself and tell me if it’s not the best Georgia Peach Cobbler you’ve ever eaten!

Ingredients

Filling:
1/2 stick of butter
8 peaches, peeled and sliced (6 to 8 cups)
1/4 cup cinnamon bourbon whiskey
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Dough:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 sticks cold unsalted butter
3/4 cup heavy cream

Garnish:
1 quart vanilla-bean ice cream, for serving

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

For the dough, mix flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Cut 1 1/2 sticks of the butter into small pieces; add to the flour mixture and cut it in with a pastry blender or your hands until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Pour in the cream and mix just until the dough comes together. It is a little sticky…but resit the temptation to overwork the dough…only mix until just incorporated. Set aside.

For the filling, melt 1/2 stick butter in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat…combine the peaches, cinnamon bourbon whiskey, 1/4 cup sugar, the cornstarch and cinnamon simmer for about 5 mins.

*If you don’t have a cast iron skillet you can either send your hubby to the store to buy one…(like I did) or you can just cook the filling in a skillet of your choosing and pour it into a 2 quart casserole dish.

Now, drop the dough by tablespoonfuls over the warm peaches.

Bake in the oven on a baking sheet (to catch any drips) until the cobbler is browned and the fruit is bubbling, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm with the ice cream.

Don’t be alarmed when your neighbor’s knock on your door inquiring what that amazing smell is!!!
