Peach Cobbler

Cobbler Filling
2 cups canned peaches
½ cup sugar
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. vanilla

Cobbler Crust
½ cup whole wheat flour
½ cup white flour
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ cup shortening
2/3 cup water

In an ovenproof baking dish, add the peaches and cover with sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Mix together and bake for 10 minutes at 400° F. While peaches are baking, mix together all the dry ingredients for the cobbler crust. Cut in the shortening with your fingers or a pastry cutter until it forms a coarse texture. Add the water and mix well. Remove the peaches from the oven and carefully spoon the batter over the top of the fruit. Do not stir (the batter will form a nice crust over the peaches).

Bake for 20-30 minutes until the fruit is bubbly and the crust is nice and golden brown.

If available butter and milk can be substituted for the shortening and water for more flavor.
