Vintage Recipe Thursday -- Lucky 13th Edition Peach Cobler Recipe

Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers or your own original vintage family recipes. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?


I thoroughly enjoy cobblers and of course, peach cobblers. They also remind me of my college days. We were pretty lucky to have a tasty college kitchen and peach cobblers were among the favorites and most requested. Our cafeteria director was happy to oblige our requests and listen to our suggestions, likes and dislikes. We were lucky indeed.

Peach Cobbler Recipe
1 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter
6 halves canned peaches
1 teaspoon baking powder

Sift flour, measure, and sift with baking powder and salt. Cut in butter with 2 spatulas. Add milk. Turn onto lightly floured board. Knead lightly. Pat in sheet 1/3 inch thick. Place peaches in a casserole. Sprinkle with sugar. Place dough on top of peaches. Cut slits to allow steam to escape. Bake in hot oven (450 F.) 30 minutes.
Boil 1/4 cup sugar in 1/4 cup water 4 minutes. Add 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract. When cobbler has baked 20 minutes add syrup. Bake 10 minutes. If desired, serve with cream. 6 servings. Mrs. M. D. Mycue, Huron, S. D.
