Fresh Warm Fruit Cobbler

Are you hungry for some fresh-baked dessert? When the heat of summer passes, making baked goods comes naturally with the cooler temperatures and the onset of the holidays. This recipe reminds me of my grandmother who was a world-class cook. She always had something delicious baking in the oven. Even if you're not an experienced cook this dessert is easy to make and a dish your family will enjoy. The ingredients are basic and can be found in most pantries.Baked Peach CobblerCredit: PegCole17

Start by combining one half cup of brown sugar with one and a half tablespoons of cornstarch.

Add half a tsp. of cinnamon to the mix.

Drain the canned peaches reserving half a cup of the liquid or use one half cup of water in place of the peach syrup.

In a medium saucepan combine the sugar spice mixture with the liquid.

Cook this over medium heat, stirring until the sauce becomes thickened, about five minutes.

Add the peaches to the thickened syrup mixture and heat until the peaches are warm. Set this aside while you prepare the crust or biscuit topper.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and mix the pie crust topper together. I like to make mine from scratch using a family pie crust recipe, but it's faster to use a ready-made pie crust from a can and a lot easier.

Roll out the crust on a floured surface and sprinkle a light coating of cinnamon and sugar over the surface, if desired. Using your favorite shaped biscuit cutter or the rim of a small glass, cut the dough into individual pieces.

Use the pieces of pie crust to line the bottom of a lightly greased oven proof dish, overlapping the edges slightly to cover the base of the dish.

Pour the heated peach mixture into the oven proof dish over the bottom crust.

Bake the prepared dish for 20 to 25 minutes until the crust turns golden brown and the filling is bubbly.  Remove it from the oven and let the dish cool for about five minutes.

Serve it warm with whipped cream or ice cream. We like it with both!

Be sure to refrigerate any leftovers if there are any. The next day, the cobbler is great either chilled or briefly warmed in the microwave.

Preparation time is about twenty minutes and baking time around twenty-five minutes, which means you'll have a hot, fresh dessert in less than an hour.
