Take advantage of sweet summer peaches with our delicious cobbler. The peaches are cooked down with sugar, cornstarch, fresh lemon juice, and bright cinnamon, and the topping comes together in minutes. The cobbler is even more flavorful when made with white-variety peaches if you can find them. You can enhance the peach flavor of this recipe even more by swapping 1 teaspoon of almond extract for the lemon juice, and stir 2 tablespoons of sliced almonds into the crumbly topping, if desired.

Ingredients

peach(es)

6 medium, peeled, pitted and sliced

sugar

6 Tbsp, divided

cornstarch

1 Tbsp

fresh lemon juice

1 tsp

ground cinnamon

½ tsp

all-purpose flour

1 cup(s)

baking powder

1½ tsp

table salt

½ tsp

reduced-calorie margarine

3 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine peaches, 1/3 cup of sugar (5 1/3 tablespoons), cornstarch, lemon juice and cinnamon; toss to coat peaches. Set pan over medium heat and bring to a boil; cook until mixture thickens, about 1 minute. Remove pan from heat; transfer mixture to an 8-inch square baking pan.
  3. To make topping, combine flour, remaining tablespoon of sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Work in margarine with a fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk; stir until flour mixture is evenly moistened.
  4. Drop 8 tablespoons of topping mixture over peach mixture. Bake until topping is golden brown and filling is bubbly, about 20 to 25 minutes. Cut into 8 pieces and serve.
