Peach Cobbler

* 1 cup sugar
* 4 tbsp flour
* 1/2 tsp cinnamon
* 3 cups fresh peaches, in chunks or slices
* 1 cup DIY Bisquick
* 1 tbsp sugar
* 1.5 tbsp melted butter
* 1/4 cup milk

Note: 1/2 recipe of Bisquick Shortcake (recipe below) can replace final 4 ingredients from above

Bisquick Shortcake ingredients
* 2 cups Bisquick
* 2 tbsp sugar
* 3 tbsp melted shortening
* 1/2 cup milk

1. Mix sugar, flour and cinnamon.  Blend this with the fresh peaches.
2. Pour the peaches into a greased 8x8 casserole or utility dish
3. Mix the final four ingredients together.  Chunk off pieces and "plop" it onto the fruit.  Don't worry about gaps, the dough will expand.
4. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 400 F, or until lightly golden brown.  Serve hot, with ice cream or fresh whipped cream, if desired!

We had my Aunt Helen's famous peach cobbler while traveling the US this summer.  It was a hit with the kids, and who doesn't love a fabulous fruit dessert!  The original recipe calls to roll the shortcake dough into the shape of the dish you are using, and place it over the fruit and prick it with a fork.  I decided it would be easier and more rustic to just put heaps of biscuit dough on the fruit.  It turned out great this way, but the original method was delicious as well! I have only made it with my DIY Bisquick, so if you have that on hand for making waffles, use some for this dessert and you won't be disappointed!
