  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place the peaches in a medium bowl. Sprinkle lemon juice over them. Mix together 1/2 cup of sugar and cornstarch. Sprinkle over the peaches, and stir to coat. Spoon into a 2 to 2 1/2 quart casserole dish.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter with a fork or pastry cutter until it is in fine crumbs. Make a well in the center, and pour in the cream. Stir with a fork until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  4. Roll out dough on a floured surface until it is just big enough to cover the baking dish. Cut a 2 inch cross in the center. Place over the peaches, and tuck in the dough around the sides. Turn back the corners of the cross to reveal the filling.
  5. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until filling is bubbly, and top is golden brown.

I love the peach mixture in this---the taste was a little sweetened vs. a little tart. However, the dough on top was a bit like thick pie crust, and I thought it could have been a little sweeter...

Crust came out all wrong. It was more like a very dense cobbler. I was thinking I'd get a pie crust like topping, I may alter this until I get that. Good if you're in a hurry though.

Simple and fantastic!!! The top is a tender, soft and sweet biscuit like rolled dough. The filling is just heavenly with only four ingredients. This is a true Southern classic peach dessert. ...

I love this recipe and have been making it for years, but never thought to make it in a cast-iron pan. The perfect complement is home-churned ice cream. It isn't meant to be a pie at all, so do...

My mom makes this for me on my birthdays. SHe uses a can of peaches and milk instead of cream and substitutes part of the milk for the juice in the peach can. its sooo good.

This recipe was very good. My children loved it! I used frozen peaches. Thank you for the recipe!

I had some perfectly ripe peaches to use up, and my search led me to this. Very easy to put together, even for me, and I am not exactly known for my crusts (well, not known in the good sense of...

Wow. I stirred until my arm was aching and even had someone help stir... How in the world are you supposed to roll out that sticky mess? I had to add WAY more flour to even get it to a consiste...
