Christmas Dessert Recipes

Peach Cobbler - a southern favorite

Peach Cobbler

-2-32 oz. cans of sliced peaches
-1 cup white sugar
-1 cup brown sugar
-2 tablespoons flour
-1/2 stick of butter 2 boxes of ready to bake pie crust
-Cinnamon & sugar mix

Pour juices from peach in a large saucepan, and cook over medium-low heat.

Stir in sugars and butter, continue to cook for 15 minutes.

Sift in flour and cook uncovered for another 15 minutes.

Add peaches and slightly increase heat. Cook until mixture starts to boil.

Take a casserole dish and coat the bottom with margarine.

Cover the bottom of the dish with 2 of the pie crusts, making sure they overlap in the middle to prevent the peaches and juice from seeping through.

Pour the peach mixture over the pie crusts.

Take another pie crust and cut into squares. Carefully place the cubes down into the mixture, which will form dumplings as they cook.

Take the remaining pie crusts to cover the mixture. Again, overlap them in the middle.
Melt about 1 tablespoon of margarine and brush over the crust.

Lightly sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mix over the top.

Bake at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes.

Let stand for at least 15 minutes after removing it from the oven, and serve warm.

For a really decadent dessert, serve with vanilla ice cream.

As the water is heating, frequently stir the morsels and cream until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.

Remove from heat.

Dip the entire strawberries (except the leafy green part), one by one, into the chocolate.
