We had a great weekend! I got all the laundry done, moved a lot of my crafting things to the basement (hopefully that transformation will be in my next post!), enjoyed church on Sunday, and tried a recipe that I have been wanting to make for a long time.
This is one of those invaluable family recipes. My grandmother (Mom's mom) makes the best fruit cobblers, and I pinned her down one day with an index card & pen, and asked for the recipe. Like most recipes from our grandmothers, she had it all memorized. It's so easy, but so yummy! And, it's from scratch, so it's worth bragging about. :)
Mamaw Helen's Fruit Cobbler Recipe
(My Version is Peach Cobbler)
- fruit (peaches, berries, etc.)
- one stick butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup milk
Cut up the peaches...
Cover with a little water (or if canned, add juice from can), and sweeten to taste.
Stir fruit, water & sugar...
Take your 1 cup sugar, 3/4 cup flour & 1/2 cup milk...
...and mix together in a bowl...
Melt one stick butter in microwave in bowl you want to bake cobbler in...
Pour sugar/flour/milk mixture into butter. DO NOT STIR!
Add fruit on top. Again, DO NOT STIR!
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Your house will smell amazing!!
Also, a little tip my grandmother gave me (after my first attempt), when there are 10 minutes of cooking time left, you can melt a small amount of butter & spread on top. This makes for a crunchier (and less healthy :) ) topping. Also, I ended up baking mine about 10 minutes more than the time given, because it didn't look "done". I was so happy with my first attempt at this awesomely easy recipe (and Zach was too)!
