Coconut Peach Cobbler22


Page 23: Peach Cobbler recipe.

There are three corrections to the recipe: (1) The filling should include 1 Tbsp. cornstarch, added to the peaches with the sugar, 1/2 cup of the coconut, and the ginger. If using frozen peaches, completely thaw the fruit to room temperature and use 2 Tbsp. cornstarch instead of 1 Tbsp. (2) The amount of buttermilk in the biscuit topping should be 3/4 cup. (3) The cobbler should be baked 45 minutes before the biscuit topping is brushed with milk and sprinkled with the final 1/2 cup of coconut, then baked until a toothpick inserted in the center of the biscuit topping comes out clean, about 15 more minutes.
