Passed down the generations.....

As you might have guessed from my last few posts... I LOVE history, I LOVE cooking and I LOVE family! Put those three things together and you get this Cobbler recipe that comes from my Great-Grandmother, given to my by my Grandma. You can use this recipe with peaches or apples.... just depends on what is in season. Right now my peach trees (I have two) are LOADED!!! YUMMY!!! They are small and take forever to "put-up" so we mostly enjoy them fresh. This desert is a MUST make during peach season. Enjoy! Using "in season" fruit is a great way to save money. I try to "put-up" as many types of fresh produce as I can to enjoy over the winter. In the winter I enjoy making mixed fruit cobblers.... a little of every fruit in my freezer! We have had some interesting combinations and it is ALL good! I am going to type up the recipe the exact way it was given to me.... I use whatever fruit is in season. The boy's and I picked some blueberries tonight at a local farm... they are yummy to add in! For more frugal ideas go to Biblical Womanhood for Frugal Friday.

Great-Grandmother's Cobbler

Fill a 9x13 pan with peeled and sliced apples (about 5-7 cups)

Cut together the following ingredients until crumbly and spread over the apples:
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar (more for tart apples) (can use 1/2 cup brown and 1/2 cup white)
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 unbeaten egg
1/2 stick butter

After you spread this mixture over the fruit sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg over topping.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.

I wish I had peach trees.

I made Strawberry Shortcake tonight and it was almost this same exact recipe. The peaches sound so good! I used whole grain flower and I really believe it has so much more flavor than the white flour.

Thank you!!! I just bought some peaches on sale, but my kids won't eat them whole. I hoped to make a cobbler and needed a recipe. Looks good!!! ~ Jennifer
