4 lb. peaches, peeled and cut into ½-inch thick slices
2 Tbsp quick cooking tapioca
~ juice of 1 lemon
2 cups all purpose flour
½ cup sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
½ cup butter, cut into ½-inch cubes
½ cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Mix peaches, ½ cup sugar, tapioca, and lemon juice in a large bowl. Let sit for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, ¼ cup sugar and salt. Cut the butter in with a fork or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the milk and egg until just moistened.
Pour fruit into a 13x9 casserole dish. Drop the batter on the fruit. Bake in a 350°F oven for 50-60 minutes until fruit is bubbling and the cobbler crust is golden brown.
