peach cobbler

it seems like everyone in the world "knows" my lovely sister-in-law, NieNie - since she and my brother were in a horrible plane crash, especially.

the first time I met stephanie I remember thinking she was practially perfect in every way. it seemed like everything she touched was beautiful and sweet. I was 16 and desperately wanted to be like her when I grew up. when she and my brother got married a few short months later, we went to utah to meet the family. at her parent's home on fir avenue, we had a delicious dinner which ended with stephanie's famous peach cobbler. it was so beautiful and though I had never been a "baked fruit dessert" type of gal, I tried some. that's when I fell in love with peach cobbler. I can't wait for stephanie to get back into the kitchen and make her yummy food again, encouraging so many people to make beautiful dinners, beautiful homes, beautiful lives.

two rules for peach cobbler:
1. fresh peaches only
2. vanilla bean ice cream on top

nienie's peach cobbler

8 fresh peaches
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shortening
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder

Grease an 8" square pan (or pie pan). Peel and slice peaches into the pan. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl. Crumble on top of the peaches. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top.

That looks too good. I actually need that right now.

Isn't the Fir Ave house the best. Good memories there as a teenager. Lots of sleepovers on that trampoline.

Too bad you couldn't have been at the Nie 5k today. It was so rad.
