Peach Desserts
Here are two delicious peach desserts we have enjoyed through the years. The one I make when fresh peaches are in season and the other when fresh aren't available, or at their peak.

Fresh Peach Cobbler

3 cups peeled & sliced fresh peaches
1 cup sugar (I find 3/4 cup is plenty)
1/4 tsp. almond extract
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. sugar
1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp. sugar
Preheat oven to 375°.

Arrange sliced peaches in greased 8 inch square baking dish. Combine 1 cup sugar, almond
extract, lemon juice and lemon rind and sprinkle over peaches. Heat in oven while preparing the cobbler topping. Mix together the flour, salt, baking powder and 1 tbsp. sugar. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender to make coarse crumbs. Add milk and beaten egg at once and stir just till moistened. Spread dough over hot peaches. Sprinkle with 2 tbsp. sugar. Bake at 375° 35 to 40 minutes till topping is golden brown and peaches are tender. Is best served warm with whipped cream.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Peach Crumble

1 large can (20 oz.) can sliced peaches
(drain and reserve 1/4 cup syrup)
2 tsp. grated lemon rind
2 tsp. lemon juice
6 tbsp. flour
6 tbsp. granulated sugar
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
3 tbsp. butter

Arrange drained peach slices in a small buttered casserole dish, or 8 inch square pan. Mix lemon rind, juice and the 1/4 cup reserved peach syrup; pour over peach slices. Mix flour, sugar and spices and cut in butter with a pastry blender till crumbly. Sprinkle over peaches.

Bake at 375° for 35 minutes. Serve warm or cold. It's excellent served with whipped cream.
Makes 6 servings.

NOTE: If using a casserole dish and is deep so top does not brown well, put under the boiler till brown and bubbly. Judy (in Alaska)
