If I had a peach tree in my back yard I would make this delicious cobbler with fresh peaches, but alas I don't. So second best would be that I had purchased and home canned peaches for my pantry. Well unfortunately, no that didn't happen either, so........
Sometimes (well let's be totally honest here....) or even possibly more than sometimes, we will use canned (read that commercially canned), purchased from the grocery store foods. And at the end of the day, it is OK. Do you want to know why? (I shall at this point just proceed like you nodded yes, in response to my question).
Not every recipe or meal will fit most food plans/budgets when you only cook with fresh from the market foods. It would be wonderful to only have the freshest of everything on your table, to serve to those you love and care for. But it is not possible for most families. There are other financial responsibilities, and again, it is OK.
So, want to make a wonderful peach cobbler calling for commercially canned peaches? OK! Let's take a look.....

Pleasing Peach Cobbler
adapted from: One Perfect Bite
4 - 16 oz cans of sliced peaches (or 2 qts of home canned peaches) drained, reserve juices
2 c flour
1 1/2 c sugar
2 t baking powder
1 c buttermilk (or 1 T cider vinegar in the bottom of glass measure and enough milk to equal 1 cup, let sit)
1/3 c melted butter
1 1/4 c sugar (FYI: you could cut this measure back to 1c and not lose any flavor at all)
2 T cornstarch
1 t salt
2 cups boiling reserved syrup
2 T sugar
1 t cinnamon
Prepare a 9X13 baking pan, add drained peaches, spreading evenly in the bottom of the pan.
Combine all topping ingredients (flour through melted butter), combine well. Drop in spoonfuls over the peaches.
Stir together the sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Make sure all corn starch lumps are mixed in. Sprinkle over the peaches.
Bring the reserved syrup to a boil, pour evenly over the dropped topping.
Combine the final sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the syrup. Do Not Mix.
Bake 55-65 minutes or until tests done in your oven.
Let cool, serve with vanilla ice cream or a spoonful of vanilla yogurt or whipped cream.
Serves 8-12 (you will make this again.....)
