Peach Cobbler

Fresh peaches, sugar and a simple biscuit topping make up this comforting dessert.  Top it with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream topping and you're good to go!
8 large peaches, peeled and sliced into thin wedges
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/8 cup light brown sugar
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/8 tsp cinnamon
2 tsps. cornstarch
Biscuit topping:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 tsp salt
3/4 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup boiling water
Toss peaches with sugars, lemon juice, cinnamon and cornstarch in a 2 quart baking dish and bake on middle rack of oven for 10 minutes.  Make the topping while the peaches bake.  Stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Blend in butter with your fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Stir in water until just combined.  Remove peaches from oven and drop topping by spoonfuls over them.  Bake about 25 minutes until topping is golden.  Let cool a little bit, then serve warm topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.  If not serving immediately, let cool, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate.  When ready to serve, remove wrap and heat in a 375 degree oven until warmed to your liking.
