Author Notes: In that brief moment of time when the best peaches are available, this variation of a cobbler really shines. The topping is not doughy in the least and bakes up with a light, sugar snappy crunch. And the leftovers, if there are any, make for an illicitly good breakfast. Call it a fruit serving.marynn

Serves 4-6 (sometimes 2)

  • 3 cups peeled, sliced, perfect peaches
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 pinch nutmeg (4-6 swipes on the grater)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 cup AP flour
  • 6 tablespoons butter--melted and cooled a bit
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint, either whole or chiffonade
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 375 and have the rack in the middle. On the lower rack, have a Silpat-lined sheet to catch any dribbles.
  2. Place peaches in a greased or sprayed 8 X 8 baking dish--I use Pyrex. Sprinkle lemon juice over all.
  3. Sift dry ingredients; add egg, tossing the mixture with a fork until crumbly.
  4. Sprinkle flour/egg mixture over peaches and drizzle with butter. ALL of it.
  5. Bake for 30-40 mn 'till golden brown and delectable. Let it sit about 15 mn before serving. Ice cream? Of course. Add mint chiffonade, if you wish.

as nola2nooga commented this recipe is missing ingredient... probably baking power

well, this did not turn out even though I followed the recipe to a T. looked like a buttery wet mess. no light and fluffy topping out of our oven. So. proceed with caution. me thinks something was left out of the ingredient list!

Thanks! I hesitated to post this because it is so basic. But we love it and I really do think the topping sets it apart. Sometimes I put some cinnamon in the crust, as well.
