tnonameIt’s hot and I’m eating recklessly!  Love the summer and love southern comfort food.  Not a huge fan of sweets but when I discovered this baby below, I had to rethink my views on Peach Cobbler.  Enjoy with a tall glass of milk…it does your body good!


3 cans (15 oz) sliced peaches, packed in juice, drained and 1/4 cup juice reserved
1/2 cup Golden Blossom Honey
2 Tablespoons instant tapioca
1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 cup flour
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/2 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons chilled butter, cut into pieces
1/2 cup sour cream


Preheat oven to 425°. Place peaches and reserved juice in large bowl. Toss gently with next five ingredients. Pour into a 9x13x2 inch pan. Set aside.

For biscuits: Place dry ingredients in food processor. Add butter, pulse until mixture forms small crumbs. Add sour cream and pulse again until dough forms a ball. Remove dough to a floured surface. Using floured rolling pin, roll out dough to ½” thickness. Cut dough into circles using cookie cutter or top of a glass. Should yield 10-12 biscuits.
Place biscuits evenly over top of fruit. Bake 25 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown and juice is bubbly.
Serves 10-12.
