  • 12 sliced peaches 
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

Labor Day Peach CobblerTopping:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 3/4 cups cold butter, cut into small bits
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and grease a 4-quart baking dish. Toss the peaches with the 1/4 sugar, 1/4 brown sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch, 2 teaspoons vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, and pinch salt in the baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes. While the peaches bake, sift together the flours, sugars, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. Blend in the butter until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Right before the peaches are finished baking, add the water and vanilla and mix until just moistened. Drop the topping over the peaches evenly. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.
