Just Peachy

I've had an up-and-down last few weeks with small health upsets and the loss of a long lost love, so I went into the kitchen looking for comfort. You'd be proud - I bypassed the Hershey Kisses. Instead, I put together a terrific peach cobbler that was less like cobbler and much more like a custardy thing. I can't explain it other than it was divine.

Peach Cobbler
2 lb. peaches
1 c. sugar, divided
1/2 c. flour
1 stick butter, cut into bits
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a square pan (I used a glass one). Slice peaches and mix them with half the sugar.

In a food processor, mix together flour butter, baking powder, and sugar. Stir in egg and vanilla.

Spread a small amount of the dough on the bottom of the pan. Put peaches on top. Drop remaining dough onto the top without spreading it. Bake for about 45 minutes.

Cool and eat.
