easy peach cobbler

yummy peaches...they remind me of summer. i love a juicy, sweet peach on a hot summer day! how refreshing. about 45 minutes away from my house is a place you can pick peaches right off the tree. my mema and papa (my grandparents) came all the way from florida to go there and pick peaches. i would've loved to have gone with them and my mom, but little man was sick, and i didn't want to wake him up at 6 am to go (my little guy sleeps until about 8am). even though we didn't get to go pick them, we did get to enjoy them! i was brought back a half a bushel! that's a lot of peaches! so, we've been eating at least one a day each and i've made 3 peach cobblers! the hubs loved it! he's the reason i made 3! i didn't realize how easy peach cobbler was to make! hope you enjoy!

peach cobbler
serves 4

ingredients
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
cinnamon (to taste)
brown sugar
3-4 medium/large peaches sliced & skin-free

directions
1. heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. put butter in an 8-inch square, and set in oven to melt. when butter has melted, remove pan from oven.
3. whisk flour, 3/4 cup of sugar, baking powder and salt in small bowl. add cinnamon to your taste (i love cinnamon and added a lot!) add milk; whisk to form a smooth batter.
4. pour batter into pan (the butter will come up over the sides of the batter...that's ok! don't mix them together), layer fruit over batter (it's ok to layer the peaches over the peaches). sprinkle with brown sugar (i didn't measure the sugar, i just sprinkled a little bit over it)
5. bake until batter browns, about 55 minutes to an hour.
6. serve warm with some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream (or a tall glass of milk)
*since posting this, i made it again and added some {a lot} of blueberries and cut the peaches to 2-3 of them. it was excellent!!*
