KITCHEN SCOOP: Fresh Peach Cobbler

It's already august and that means it's getting even hotter. But Alicia Ross has a good way to keep cool with a homemade peach cobbler.

Fresh Peach Cobbler

8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup whole or reduced fat-milk
6 cups fresh sliced peaches
Ice cream, optional for serving

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place butter in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish and place in the preheating oven. When butter has melted, about 3 minutes, carefully remove dish and set aside. Let oven continue to preheat.

In a medium-mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, vanilla and milk, whisking well to combine. Pour mixture evenly over butter in baking dish, but do not stir. Place peaches over the crust mixture but do not stir.

Bake, uncovered, 45 minutes or until crust is light golden brown. Cool 10 minutes and serve warm, with ice cream if desired.
