Happy 4th of July to all of my U.S. compatriots!
Today is a day to celebrate our freedom and our country's history. My street had a neighborhood picnic and except for an unexpected shower, it was a really great gathering with some wonderful people and delicious food. One of the things I made for it was Peach Cobbler. The peaches this time of year are so sweet and juicy that they're perfect for this very simple recipe. I can't remember who I got the recipe from, but every time I make it, people ask me for it.
- 2 cups sliced peaches
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 stick butter or margarine
- 3/4 cup flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 3/4 cup of milk
Mix the peaches with 1 cup of sugar. Put the butter in a very deep pan and set in a 350 degree oven to melt. Stir up batter of 1 cup of sugar, the flour, baking powder, salt and milk. Pour over the melted butter. Do not stir! Spoon the peaches on top. Bake for 1 hour or until the crust is golden brown. The batter rises to the top during baking.
For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don't use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.
Galatians 5:13 (NLT)
