More peaches! Peach Cobbler

peach cobbler, piece, originally uploaded by cabanagirl.

Try this with your fresh peaches. I still have plenty of them. I started with this recipe but made a change in the peach preparation. I had already prepared my peaches last night adding fresh lime juice and just a bit of brown sugar to keep them from turning brown. Then I added some fresh ground ginger. I love lime and ginger together and they are a nice complement to peaches. I used my vanilla bean to "soak" in cream and then whipped it when the cobbler came out of the oven. Here's my starter recipe (Thank you Marjorie for your entry to inspire me) Peach cobbler recipe (Victoria magazine) Bon Appetit!!!
6 large ripe peaches, peeled, pitted, and cut into thin wedges
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and scraped, seeds reserved
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup buttermilk
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, 3 tablespoons melted and 3 tablespoons softened, divided
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 425 0. Lightly spray a 9x9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
2. In a large bowl, combine the peaches, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla bean seeds, and 2 Tablespoons flour, and toss until evenly coated.
3. Pour the peach mixture into the prepared pan, and bake for 10 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, in a separate large bowl, stir together remaining 3/4 cup flour, sugar, baking powder,baking soda, and salt. Whisk in buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
5. Remove peaches from oven, dot with the softened butter, and spoon the prepared batter over peaches. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.
