Simple Recipe for Old-Fashioned Peach Cobbler

The Recipe Ingredients

1 All-Purpose Pie Crust, homemade or purchased already-made
6 cups of sliced Peaches
1/2 cup of light or dark Brown Sugar - or you can use Splenda
2 teaspoons of Ground Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons of Cornstarch
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla

How to Prepare

You can use either a prepared pie crust to make this delicious reduced fat cobbler OR you can make your own dough. Be sure to roll it out as thin as possible. Next, cut into strips one-inch strips and set aside on wax paper.

Cook the 6 cups of peaches in water on the stove top until tender. It shouldn't take long to reach that state - about five minutes after they reach a boil. Take care not to overcook. They are ready when they are fork-tender.

Use a mix of cornstarch and water to thicken the peaches. Add the ground cinnamon and 1/2 cup of brown sugar to the mixture.

Layer the strips of raw dough with the cobbler mix, ending with the dough. You can arrange it where it creates a lattice on top for a beautiful display.

Brush the dough with slightly beaten egg white for an eye-popping display.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until the crust is golden brown.
