Peach Cobbler

8 cups sliced Georgia peaches
2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1/3 cup butter or margarine
Pastry for double-crust pie
Vanilla ice cream

 

Combine peaches, sugar, flour and nutmeg in a Dutch oven. Set aside to allow syrup to form, approx. 15 minutes. Bring peach mixture to a boil then reduce heat to low, and simmer 10 minutes or until peaches are tender. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and margarine.

Roll half of pastry to 1/8" thickness: cut into a circle to fit a two-quart baking dish. Spoon half of mixture into lightly buttered baking dish; top with pastry. Bake at 475°F for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Spoon remaining peach mixture over baked pastry.

Roll remaining pastry to 1/8" thickness and cut into 1" strips; arrange in lattice design over peaches. Bake an additional 15-20 minutes until browned.

Allow to cool slightly before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
