just peachy

Guess what my sister did today? Her and her fiancee went to Knotts Island North Carolina and picked peaches. No fair I want peaches. I want to make THIS:

Peach Cobbler
1/2 c brown sugar firmly packed
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 20 oz. pk. frozen peach slices-thawed
1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 c all purpose flour
1/2 c granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c butter
1/2 c. milk
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Heavy cream, Optional

Prepare filling
In a 2 qt, saucepan combine brown sugar, cornstarch and 1/2 c. water. Bring to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in peaches and lemon juice. Spoon mixture into 1 1/2 qt round backing dish. Heat over to 350ยบ

Prepare Topping
In a medium size bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk until well blended. Spread dough over peach mixture in backing dish. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Bake 30-35 minutes until golden
