●2 tsp vanilla extract
●3 tbsp all purpose flour
●1 cup butter flavored shortening
●2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
●2 tbsp sugar
●1 tsp salt
●1/3 cup ice water
The Step-by-Step Process:
Add 2 cups of sifted all purpose flour into a mixing bowl, then add the shortening. Use a pastry cutter, or dough hooks to combine the ingredients.
Once the mixture resembles crumbs, add in the 1/3 cup of ice water.
Form a ball, then cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 45 minutes.
Place the peaches in a large pot.
Add the water, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg, then turn the heat to medium high.
Once the peach mixture starts to bubble, add in the butter, and vanilla. Stir
With the remaining 1/2 cup of water, sprinkle in 3 tbsp of all purpose flour then mix.
Pour the water/flour mixture into the peach mixture. Stir, and reduce the heat to low.
Roll out the dough, the cut in half.
With one of the dough halves, roll out, and cut into inch squares then place on a cookie sheet.
Bake the square for 7 minutes on 375 F.
Pour the peach mixture into a 13 x 9 baking dish.
Remove the squares from the oven then toss them into the peach mixture and fold in.
With the last ball of dough, roll it out, and cut it into strips ( watch video)
Place the dough strips on top of the cobbler, lattice style then bake for 40 minutes on 375 F.
Let cool down, then serve with vanilla ice cream.
Pro Tips for Success :
- Use ripe and juicy peaches for the best flavor. If fresh peaches aren’t available, canned peaches (in juice, not syrup) can be used as a convenient alternative.
- Adjust the sugar level in the filling according to your taste and the sweetness of your peaches. You can reduce the sugar slightly for a less sweet dessert or increase it if you prefer it sweeter.
- Don’t overmix the cobbler batter. Mix it just until the ingredients are combined to maintain a tender texture.
- Serve the Peach Cobbler Pie warm for the best experience. Reheat individual slices in the microwave for a quick treat.
