Praline Peach Cobbler
(Taste of Home)

1-1/2 cups plus 2 teaspoons sugar, divided
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup water
8 cups sliced peeled fresh peaches
2 cups self-rising flour*
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans

In a saucepan, mix 1-1/2 cups sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and water; stir until smooth. Add peaches; cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Pour into a lightly greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish; set aside.

In a bowl, combine flour and remaining sugar; cut in shortening until mixture resembles course crumbs. Add buttermilk and stir just until moistened. If needed, add additional buttermilk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough clings together. Turn onto floured surface; knead gently 6 to 8 times. Roll into a 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle.

Combine butter, brown sugar and pecans. Spread over the dough within 1/2 inch of the edges. Starting with the long side roll up jelly-roll style. Cut into 12 pieces 1 inch each. Place on top of pecan mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

Yield: 12 servings.

(*if self-rising flour is not available, substitute 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt.)
