Recipe

Great Granny Waymire’s Peach Cobbler

Bridget’s Great Granny Waymire’s Peach Cobbler has been a staple at Rabun family meals for generations. The piece of paper she so carefully typed it on many years ago has seen better days, but the flavor it produces is as spectacular as ever. While this dish is a favorite at summer birthday gatherings during peak peach season, our family has added it to our holiday lineup in recent years with the addition of a few dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg mixed in with the sugar.

Ingredients

Peach Cobbler

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 cups sliced peaches
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • ¼ cup butter or margarine, divided

Pastry

  • 1 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 to 1 ½ tablespoons ice water

Combine flour and salt in a mixing bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add egg and lemon juice; stir well. Sprinkly ice water evenly over surface, a little at a time, to make a soft dough. Knead dough on a slightly floured surface several times. Shape into a ball; wrap in waved paper and chill 30 minutes. Yields enough pastry for 1 double-crust cobbler.
