  • 3 heaping tablespoons sugar, plus extra for sprinkling over the top

Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream, for serving

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a baking dish.

  • For the fruit: In a bowl, combine the peaches, sugar, flour, lemon juice and salt. Stir and set aside.

  • For the topping: In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir together. Add the butter and shortening, and then cut together with a pastry cutter. Beat the milk and eggs together. Pour into the flour mixture and stir with a fork until just combined.

  • Pour the peaches into the prepared baking dish.

  • Tear off pinches of the dough topping and drop it onto the surface of the fruit, creating a "cobbled" texture. Sprinkle additional sugar over the top.

  • Bake until golden brown and bubbly, 30 to 35 minutes. Allow to sit for 10 to 15 minutes before serving. If the cobbler is too juicy, use a turkey baster to remove a little of the juice (or spoon the juice over ice cream). Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
