Ingredients
  1. CRUST
  2. 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  3. 3 tablespoons white sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon salt
  5. 1 cup butter (you can also use shortening)
  6. 1 egg
  7. 1/4 cup cold water
  8. PEACH FILLING
  9. 3-4 15 oz packages of Dole Peaches in juice. (When peaches are in season use about 3-3.5 pounds. Boil them for 5 minutes to loosen the skin then peel, remove pit and slice.)
  10. 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  11. 1/2 cup cold butter
  12. 1 cup white sugar
  13. 1.5 cup brown sugar (I usually end up with adding two cups)
  14. 1-2 teaspoons ground nutmeg (to taste)
  15. 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon (to taste)
  16. 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  17. 1 tablespoon white sugar
  18. 1 tablespoon butter, melted
Instructions
  1. In a medium/large bowl, sift the flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, and salt. Add in the butter (must be very cold) cutting it in with a cold fork until it looks like peas.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the egg and cold water. Add in flour mixture a little at a time and mix with your hands to form dough into a ball. Chill 30 minutes or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out half of dough to about 1/8 inch. Place in a 9x13 inch baking dish, covering bottom and halfway up sides. Use fork to poke holes in it to keep it from rising. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  4. In a large saucepan, mix the peaches and lemon juice, once steaming add 1/2 cup butter, cook on medium-low until butter is melted and everything is combined.
  5. In another bowl, stir together 2 cups sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cornstarch, add to peach mixture on stove, then pour into baked crust.
  6. Roll remaining dough to about ¼ inch thick and cut into strips. Alternate layers of strips to create a lattice design over peach filling. Top with melted butter and sugar.
  7. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until top crust is golden brown.
Notes
  1. Wear loose pants and top with Blue Bell Vanilla Ice Cream – no other Vanilla ice cream is better with peach cobbler – Blue Bell is the absolute best. No shade Häagen-Dazs #shade.
