Today I baked a peach cobbler pie. First I peeled 3-4 large ripe peaches. Then I combined 1 table spoon of corn starch with 1/4 cup of cool water. I stirred it until the corn starch was dissolved. Then I added 1/2 cup of organic granulated sugar. To that I added 1 tsp of vanilla and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. I also added a dash of salt to the fruit. I put all of this into a sauce pan and brought that slowly to a boil, stirring, until thick. I placed the fruit into a large deep pie dish.
I prepared a buttermilk biscuit topping. Spooned the topping onto the fruit. Then I baked it at 350 deg. F. for 40 min. After 40 minutes I brushed the top with butter and sprinkled turbinado sugar on the top. I baked it on a covered cookie sheet to prevent spills from burning in the oven.
Its a very rustic look. In retrospect, I could have rolled out the biscuit, but whatever!
