The Monday Recipe Blog
This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
Oklahoma produces great peaches, particularly in the Stratford and Porter areas, but this year the pickin's were pretty slim. For anyone anywhere who were lucky enough to snag and freeze some fresh peaches, here is a great Lois Elaine recipe for Peach Cobbler!
Lois Elaine's Peach Cobbler:
1 c. sugar
2 T. cornstarch
1/2 t. cinnamon
1 c. water
2 T. butter (or butter substitute)
5 c. sliced, pared fresh peaches
1 1/2 c. biscuit mix (Bisquick, for example)
4 T. sugar
2/3 c. light cream
2 T. grated lemon peel
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Blend sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon in a 2 qt. saucepan; add water. Bring to boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add butter and peaches. Pour into a shallow baking dish. Combine biscuit mix and 2 T. sugar; blend in cream with a fork. Drop dough in 6 mounds around the edge of the baking dish. Combine the 2 remaining T. of sugar and the lemon peel. Sprinkle on the dough.
Bake 25 minutes or until peaches are tender and biscuits are golden brown. Serve warm with plain or whipped cream (or vanilla ice cream!)
Makes 6 servings.
