You're Welcome

I don't know if I've shared this recipe on the blog before but I feel like it merited another go if so.

This is a recipe from my Great Grandma Lytle, her food was second to none. Whenever people asked for her recipes she said, "Oh its just a little of this and a little of that." She was born in 1900 and lived through the depression so I don't doubt that she just made do with what she had most of the time. So we're lucky to have this recipe.

My dad uses this recipe when he cooks dutch oven, but it can easily be made in the oven and it is quite literally the best cobbler I've ever tasted. Maybe one of my favorite things to eat, ever.

Without further ado, I present to you:

Daisy's Deep Dish Pie
Serves 10
¼ cup butter
1 cup sugar
Dash salt
1 ½ cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
Fruit Mixture:
3 cups fruit, any kind (We use canned peaches and reserve the juice.)
2 cups juice from fruit
¼ cup butter, cut in small pieces
Mix batter—pour into 9x13 pan.  Put fruit on top of batter—dot with butter.  On stove, heat juice to boiling.  Pour hot juice over fruit.  Bake at 350 degrees  for approx 1 hour.  Serve hot with whipped cream or ice cream on top.
*Note: If you use fresh peaches, reduce your juice by at least 1/2 cup. I just make a syrup with sugar and water and bring it to a boil on the stove for the "juice".
