katie lee joel's peach cobbler

thought i would try her peach cobbler since i love her cookbook. so far i have only made this and her deviled eggs which were delish! i usually make paula deen's peach cobbler (which i love-sticky/yummy) that uses canned peaches, but since i have fresh peaches i wanted to try something different. this cobbler isn't as sweet as paula's, but it is still very good.

katie lee joel's peach cobbler


4 cups peeled, sliced fresh peaches (about 4-5 peaches)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup milk
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3/4 cup boiling water


preheat oven to 325. place the peaches in a 9 by 9 baking pan.
in a medium bowl, mix together 3/4 cup of the sugar, the flour, baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. add the milk and melted butter and mix well. pour the batter evenly over peaches.
in a small bowl, mix the remaining 1/4 cup sugar, the cornstarch, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. sprinkle over the batter. evenly pour the boiling water all over. bake for 50 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling.

eleuthera: thanks for calling the typo to my attention. i changed it to 3/4 cup boiling water. i think this helps it to get crispy on the top, but i am not sure what the deal is. i thought it was a little weird, but i did notice the batter was so much thicker than with the paula deen recipe i normally use so it made sense to add water, even if it was just pouring it on top. as far as the sugar goes, i could have stood for this to be a little sweeter. but like i said i am used to the paula recipe which called for canned peaches in syrup, so it's just not what i was used to. plus i don't think my peaches were too terribly sweet. i don't like it when cobblers taste like fruit and biscuits so this recipe works well for me.

I also have some wonderful fresh peaches right now, and I was going to look for a good cobbler recipe today. Thanks for saving me the trouble!!

While I am sure this recipe is delicious, I have to wonder why it employs so much sugar. For example, in a similar cobbler recipe, I use 3 lbs (maybe 9 or 10) of peaches with less than 3/4 cup of sugar. My recipe calls for a full cup, but the rest is used for the biscuit dough. I think sugar amounts should be adjusted according to the fruit. The peaches I have had this summer are incredibly sweet. Also in this recipe, it calls for "3/4 boiling water." Do I assume correctly that this is 3/4 cup? In addition, I have never seen the technique of adding boiling water atop a batter. What is the desired reult of adding this boiling water?
