Contest Winning Peach Cobbler

Contributed By: Parker


2 cans (29 ounces each) sliced peaches
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, optional
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
2 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Vanilla ice cream, optional


1. Drain peaches, reserving 1/2 cup syrup for the sauce. In a large bowl, combine peaches, brown sugar, tapioca, cinnamon if desired, lemon juice and vanilla. Transfer to an ungreased 11x7-in. baking dish. Let stand for 15 minutes.
2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in eggs. Drop by spoonfuls onto peach mixture; spread evenly. Bake at 350° until filling is bubbly and a toothpick inserted in topping comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes.
3. For butterscotch sauce, in a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, flour, salt, butter and reserved peach syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir until thickened, 1 minute. Remove from the heat; add lemon juice. Serve cobbler with warm sauce and, if desired, ice cream.
