Carrie Gable and her mother-in-law Doreen are boarding several A-list actors in Doreen’s family home while they film in their hometown.
Unfortunately, rising star Juliet Ramirez refuses to be nice, making life miserable for Carrie and constantly insulting Doreen.
So when Doreen finds out the weight obsessed starlet’s biggest weakness is Peach Cobbler, she makes this recipe as part of her sweet revenge.
Preheat oven to 425°F.
4 C fresh peaches pitted and cut into slices (about 2 1/2 pounds)
3/4 C sugar
2 T butter
4 drops almond extract
pinch of cinnamon (optional)
1 C flour
1/2 t salt
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/4 C butter or shortening
1/2 C milk
Place peach slices in a shallow baking dish, sprinkle with sugar and almond extract. Dot with butter.
For topping, whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder. Cut in shortening using a pastry blender or fingers. Stir in milk with a fork until dough clings together. Pat out dough to 1/4″ thickness and place over peaches. Trim edges, crimp to seal.
Cut a hole in the top center for steam to vent.
Bake for 15 minutes and then reduce to 325°F. Bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until peaches are cooked and top is golden.
