8 to 10 peaches , peeled, cored and sliced (about 8 cups)
½cup(100 g) granulated sugar
½cup(100 g) brown sugar
¼teaspoon(1.25 g) salt
1- 1 ½tablespoon (8-11 g) cornstarch
¼teaspoon(0.65 g) cinnamon
¼teaspoon(0.65 g) nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350℉ (175 degrees C)
Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with baking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together until fully combined. Add the butter either by using your hands, a pastry cutter, or two forks, then cut the butter into the mixture until it resembles a coarse meal.
Slowly add in the buttermilk and mix until evenly combined. Do not overwork the dough.
Next, add the sliced peaches, sugars, salt, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg into a saucepan and cook over medium heat for about 6-8 minutes mixing frequently until the sugar has dissolved and juice oozes out from the peaches. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
When cool, transfer the peach into the prepared baking pan and smooth it out into an even layer. Drop the dough by a handful over the peaches allowing some gaps as the dough will puff up and spread as it bakes. Brush the top with some heavy cream or egg wash and sprinkle with some chopped pecans.
Bake for about 40 -45 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and cooked through and the filling is bubbly.
Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
If you do not want to use fresh peaches, you can use about 2-3 29-pound canned peaches, drained. If using canned peaches, do not cook the peaches, pour it in a bowl and all the rest of the ingredients to it, mix to combine then transfer into the baking pan.
To determine if your biscuit topping is ready, stick a toothpick into the biscuit, if it comes out clean– it is cooked through and the cobbler is ready.
If you don’t have buttermilk, you can add 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice to a cup of whole milk, stir and let sit for 5 minutes. This can be used in place of buttermilk.
Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
