Peach cobbler... with a "happy twist"
We had some friends over and wanted to make a special dessert with some fresh ripe peaches I had around the kitchen. The result, a very delicious southern treat with a little twist!
2 generous cups sliced, ripe, fresh peaches
1 Tbsp. Dark Rum
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup self-rising flour
3/4 cup cold milk
1 tspn. vanilla extract
Mix peaches with 1 cup of sugar and the rum. Let soak for a few minutes. Melt butter in the microwave.
Combine remaining sugar, flour, milk and vanilla. Stir in melted butter. Mix well. Pour onto a 2-quart shallow baking dish.
Spoon peaches on top of the batter (juice included). DO NOT STIR.
Bake at 325ºF for 45 minutes. Sprinkle some more sugar on top and let it bake for 15 more minutes or until golden brown.
