Yield: 8 servings
Prep: 35 minutes including baking
4 cups peeled & sliced fresh peaches
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbs flour
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 tbs brown sugar
4 tbs sweet cream butter, cut into pieces
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 tbs brown sugar, for topping
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a bowl combine filling ingredients & mix well. Pour into 1 1/2 quart greased baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes.
While the fruit is baking, combine dry ingredients for crust in a bowl. Cut in the butter to make coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk & stir to form a gooey dough.
Remove peaches from oven & drop rounded spoonfuls of dough on top. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tbs brown sugar and return to the oven for 20 minutes. Top will be golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
