Peach Cobbler

1/3 cup packed light or dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice
4 cups sliced fresh peaches, about 6 medium to large

1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cold butter
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium saucepan combine brown sugar and cornstarch. Stir in water. Cook, stirring continuously until thickened and bubbly. Add butter and lemon juice. Stir in peaches. Heat thoroughly; keep warm.

For topping, combine flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until dough turns a soft yellow. Add milk all at once. Stir just to moisten.

Pour fruit mixture into a greased 9-inch glass pie pan or square baking dish that is at least 1 1/2 to 2 inches deep. Spoon topping over fruit. Don't worry if it doesn't completely cover because the dough swells during baking.

Mix remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over topping. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. Serves 8.
