Praline Peach Cobbler
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 25 min.
- 1-1/2 cups plus 2 teaspoons sugar, divided
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup water
- 8 cups sliced peeled fresh peaches
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- In a large saucepan, mix 1-1/2 cups sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon. Stir in water until smooth. Add peaches. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Pour into a lightly greased 13x9-in. baking dish; set aside.
- In a bowl, combine flour and remaining sugar; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk and stir just until moistened. If needed, add additional buttermilk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough clings together. Turn onto a floured surface; knead gently 6-8 times. Roll into a 12x8-in. rectangle.
- Combine butter, brown sugar and pecans; spread over the dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Starting with long side, roll up jelly-roll style. Cut into twelve 1-in. pieces. Place on top of the peach mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
Editor's NoteAs a substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.

This is a wonderful cobbler, with a lovely flavor combination plus it was very easy to prepare. It is nice to find different way to make peach cobbler and this is a real change of pace from the typical cobbler recipes. We served it with vanilla ice cream and it was a huge hit!

Absolutely incredible. Easy to make. In fact, we bought extra peaches so we could make several batches. We then froze the peach sauce to re-use later. This also allows us to make as many as we want (especially helpful since there are only two of us at home).
