Delicious Fresh Peach Cobbler
8 to 10 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced (about 4 cups)
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Juice of 1 lemon (about 3 tablespoons)
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 pouch Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon almond extract or vanilla
Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 13 x 9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Place peaches in dish. Sprinkle sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and lemon juice over peaches; mix lightly with spoon until coated. Dot top with 3 tablespoons butter.
In large bowl, mix topping ingredients with spoon until soft dough forms. With hands, shape golf ball-sized balls of dough into 1/4-inch-thick disks. Place disks over peaches, covering most of the top. (With any remaining dough, make and bake cookies.) Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown. Cool 10 to 15 minutes before serving. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
NOTE: Placing the fresh peaches whole in a pot of boiling water for a minute helps the skin to easily peel off. Just boil them in boiling water for 1 minute and remove them, then peel and slice.
