We've said it before and we'll say it again:
"Yes, we realize full well that
there are other peach
in our archives. We do not consider this one superfluous..."
This time we are intrigued by the fact that this is a Bourbon
peach Cobbler, but much more than that, by the fact that it is
Tyler Florence's recipe! (Or maybe it's the butter and cream!)
I noticed he did not call it the 'ultimate'
peach cobbler, but
perhaps he should have! You decide...

8 peaches, peeled and sliced,
bout 6 to 8 cups
1/4 cup bourbon
3/4 cup sugar, plus more for dusting
2 tablespoons corn starch
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
16 tablespoons (2 sticks) cold
3/4 cup heavy cream, plus
more for brushing
Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl add the peaches, bourbon, 1/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon and mix well to coat the peaches evenly; set aside.
Prepare the dumplings: Into a bowl sift together the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) butter into
small pieces. Add it to the flour mixture and cut it in with a pastry blender
or your hands until the mixture looks like coarse bread crumbs. Pour in
the cream and mix just until the dough comes together. Don't overwork;
the dough should be slightly sticky but manageable.
In a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium-low heat, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons butter. Add the peaches and cook gently until heated through, about 5 minutes. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls over the warm peaches. There can be gaps, the dough will puff up and spread out as it bakes. Brush the top with some heavy cream and sprinkle with some sugar; put it into the oven on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Cook for 40 to 45 minutes until
the top is browned and the fruit is bubbling.
