    Oh, wow, Mama!!!! Thank you so much. These are going to help me tremendously. The cobblers that my grandmother made were 'chewy' and not all 'cakey' (I hope you understand what that means as I seem to be at a loss for the proper definition here) and I loved them. How can you tell by looking at a recipe whether it's going to turn out 'chewy' or 'cakey'?

    trying to "define" and explain is hard on line - try the recipes that take more work - don't use the recipes with the cake mixes in them - and you may have to combine a few different recipes to get what you are looking for - that is why I posted different ones

    Default Old, old recipe

    I was tooling through my aunt's recipe box today. She died last year at age 90. I found this recipe pasted on a yellowed card. It was cut from a newspaper clipping and must be at least 50-70 years old. I have no idea of course from which newspaper or who may have been 'Hope'.

    Hope's Crusty Peach Cobbler

    Arrange in greased 8-in. square baking pan
    2 1/2 cups sliced, drained canned peaches

    Sprinkle with a mixture of:
    1/4 cup peach syrup, 1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
    1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind, 1/2 tsp. almond extract

    Heat in oven about 5 minutes while preparing batter.

    Sift together into bowl:
    1 cup sifted flour, 1/2 tsp. salt
    2 tsp. double-action baking powder


    Cut in with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture looks like 'meal':
    1/4 cup shortening

    Stir in: 1 egg, well beaten, 1/2 cup peach syrup

    Stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.


    Spread dough over mixture in pan. Sprinkle with 2 tbsp. sugar. Bake 30 minutes in moderately hot oven (400). Serves 9.
