This is hands-down the best cobbler I have ever had! And I have tried the famous peach cobbler at "Peach Days" in Brigham City, Utah!
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar, divided
1 tablespoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 cup milk
4 cups fresh peach slices
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Ground cinnamon or nutmeg (optional)
*Melt butter in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish.
*Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt; add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter over butter (do not stir).
*Bring remaining 1 cup sugar, peach slices, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly; pour over batter (do not stir). Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.
*Bake at 375° for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm or cool.
