Ingredients

  • 8 fresh peaches - peeled, pitted, and sliced into thin wedges

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces

  • ¼ cup boiling water

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  2. Combine peaches, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch in a large bowl. Toss to coat evenly, and pour into a 2-quart baking dish.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, combine flour, white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Blend in butter with your fingertips or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in water until just combined.

  5. Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of flour mixture over them.

  6. Mix together 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Sprinkle entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Bake until topping is golden, about 30 minutes.
