Fresh Peach Cobbler

Summertime means great fresh peaches from the farmers' markets

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar, divided 
1 tablespoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup milk 
5 cups fresh peach slices
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Ground cinnamon 

Melt butter in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt; add milk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter over butter (do not stir).

Bring remaining 1 cup sugar, peach slices, and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly; pour over batter (do not stir). Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake at 375° for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Serve cobbler warm or cool. Ice cream would be good.
