Great Stuff from Peach Country

So I started the day with water aerobics, but after a HEALTHY lo cal lunch, I was reading this recipe for peach cobbler.

Sounded easy and I live in Peach Country, and I have peaches. Out comes the pan, the bowls and the measuring cups...yep gotta do it!

Now, this recipe called for "canned" peaches. But, I used frozen ones which I got out of my freezer last night. I always use light syrup, so that was no problem.
So whether you use canned frozen or fresh, go for it! It is simple and simply delicious.

1/4 cup butter or
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
2 jars (24.5 oz each) sliced peaches in light syrup, drained, 1 1/2 cups syrup reserved

2 cups Bisquick Heart Smart® mix
3 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter, melted

Heat oven to 400 degrees F. In 4-quart saucepan, heat 1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup sugar and the cornstarch over medium heat 1 minute, stirring constantly, until butter is melted. Stir in 2 teaspoons cinnamon, the nutmeg, vanilla, lemon extract and peaches with reserved syrup. Heat to boiling; boil 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Pour into ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish.
In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, 2 tablespoons of the sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, the milk and 1 tablespoon melted butter until soft dough forms. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls over hot peach mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until peach mixture is bubbly around edges and topping is golden brown. Serve warm.
