This was delicious. I ate it myself for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Then snack…and an inbetween snack. Yes I ate it all myself. Here’s how you can make it and do the same.
You will need:
1 can of peaches OR 8 fresh peaches peeled, pitted, and sliced (availability depending on the season, way to go Canada)
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp cornstarch
2 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder1
1 tsp salt
12 tablespoons of diced, chilled butter
1/2 cup boiling water
You’ll need to preheat your oven to 400F.
Combine 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Toss the peaches with this mixture and put into bottom of the pan to cook for 10 minues in preheated oven.
While waiting on the peaches in the oven, combine the flour, salt, brown and white sugar, and baking powder. Using your fingers, blend in the butter so that the mixture looks like dampened sand. Sort of like how you’d cut in shortening to a pastry mix. Stir in the water but only until it is combined, do not over stir.
Once the peaches are done in the oven, remove. Drop clumps of the mixture you just put together on top of these peaches. You’ll want to get some extra brown sugar and sprinkle it on top of the whole thing.
Depending on the pan you used, you’ll probably want to place it on a baking sheet as this has a tendency to pour over the sides with deliciousness. HAHA. Seriously though, I advise you take precautions.
Bake until the topping is golden brown, and enjoy!
Although I’d like to take full credit for this recipe, I cannot. I did a lot of web surfing and combined about 5 recipes until I made the perfect combination of one. This is the perfect combination, which I’ve entitled myself. Enjoy folks.
