Servings: 8 People
- 3 (30 ounce cans) peaches in juices drained well
- 1 large lemon zested and juiced
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup white sugar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ cup cold, salted butter grated
- 1 cup half and half
Preheat 25 briquettes.
In a medium-size mixing bowl, toss peach slices with lemon zest and juice, cornstarch, vanilla, and white sugar. Spread them out in a 12 inch (6 quart) cast iron dutch oven.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, powdered sugar, baking powder, and salt. Use a cheese grater to grate butter into flour mixture and toss to combine.
Pour in half and half and stir to form a thick batter. Scoop the batter in large clumps on top of the peaches to form a nice cobbler crust.
Place the lid on the dutch oven and place the dutch oven on top of 8 briquettes. Place the other 17 briquettes in an even pattern on top of the lid.
Let cook, covered, 45-60 minutes until cobbler crust is lightly browned.
