Williams Family Reunion 2001 Peach Cobbler

The ingredients of this peach cobbler, I am told, should be altered by taste, what you are eating that day, and how much you have had to drink. You may alter the amount of peaches to taste, i.e. do you like your cobbler thick or thin, and bake it until it looks the way you like it. This recipe is what was made at our Williams Family 2001 reunion, but is just an outline for all you cobbler lovers.


Peal and Slice Peaches, place in bowl and cover GENEROUSLY with sugar, cover and let peaches sit until they juice up.
Place peach and juice mixture into a pot and add lemon juice, cinnamon and one stick of butter. Simmer for 15-20 minuets until peaches are tender, but not mushy.
Pour peach mixture into a 9 X 13 inch cake pan
Sprinkle cake mix evenly over peach mixture. Use your hands and crush any chunks. I guess you could sift it first, or mix it up with a fork, but we're all family, go ahead and use your hands.
Melt your last stick of butter and sprinkle it evenly over cake mixture, it should cover plenty, but hey I like butter, if you wanted to add another stick who am I to say no.
Place cobbler (now it's officially cobbler) into preheated oven (did I forget to tell you to pre heat?) at 350 degrees. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until it is as brown as you want it.(I have heard that the 30-40 minutes is almost always an hour, the LARGE one at the reunion baked an hour and a half.
Serve Ala mode with vanilla ice cream because I love it like that.

Remember, this recipe is a guideline. Make it this way the first time and adjust it to your liking. Add more cinnamon, add more Ice Cream, add more of what ever you like. Now I know what your thinking, "it's perfect, why would I change it?" and that is exactly what I would ask you.
Love to all
