Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler
8 cups Sliced fresh peaches
2 cups Sugar
1/4 cup Flour
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Ground nutmeg
1/3 cup Butter, melted
Pastry for double-crust pie
Preheat oven to 475°F.
Combine the peaches, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in a Dutch oven.
Allow to set until sugar is dissolved and a syrup forms.
Over medium heat, bring the peach mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low
and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in melted
butter. Set aside and keep warm.
Roll out half the pastry as for a pie, but cut it into an 8-inch square.
Spoon half the peach mixture into a lightly buttered 8-inch square Pyrex
dish. Cover with the pastry square. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until
lightly browned. Remove from oven and spoon remaining peach mixture over the baked pastry.
Roll out the remaining pastry, and cut into strips about an inch wide.
Arrange strips in a loose lattice weave over the peach mixture. Sprinkle
lightly with granulated sugar, if desired. Bake an additional 15 to 20
minutes or until browned
