Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler (A.K.A. Peach Puzzle)
The recipe is adapted from the Peach Cobbler recipe found in The Malone Cook Book produced by the ladies of the First Congregational Church in Malone New York and The Peach Puzzle recipe in Cook's Illustrated America's Best Lost Recipes.
Note: You can use 7 medium peaches or 6 large peaches. Each person should get a full peach. Using freestone peaches will allow you to use a knife to make a small slit to easily remove the pits prior to serving. For best results select peaches that give just a little (neither too hard nor too soft). Overly ripe peaches will produce an excess of juice that will thin your syrup.
