As I was updating this site there were many posts like this one that I contemplated deleting. But the Lord said (impressed to me) that there’s a lesson in this. My Mom passed on to glory in 2014, however, I look back to the date of this post in 2010 and truly wished that I was consistently a six figure earner because it would have made it possible for me and hubby to have more moments like this, where I could just show up and do fun things with my Mom without having to worry about not having enough money to do things. Thankfully I’ve broken through to the realm now where lack will never be a part of my life again. Enjoy the post and the recipe.
I made peach cobbler for my Mom on Thursday. Funny thing was that I was one of the first ones to dig in. I am addicted to peach cobbler so much so that I don’t make it often because I fear eating an entire pan myself. I always have it with vanilla ice cream. Delicious! I made the crust from scratch (which isn’t that difficult). I don’t even have a recipe. I’m like my Mom and Grandma, we just wing it! I think there’s a corner of a pan left. Guess who’s going to polish that off in less than 10 minutes!
You can pretty much say that it’s going, going, gone!
Here is the flaky butter crust recipe:
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter, chilled and diced
- 1/4 cup ice water
- In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water, a tablespoon at a time, until mixture forms a ball. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
- Roll dough out to fit a 9 inch pie plate. Place crust in pie plate. Press the dough evenly into the bottom and sides of the pie plate.
Here is a great “Southern” Peach Cobbler Recipe from AllRecipes.com. I’m going to try this one next time.
