Yes, we realize full well that there are other peach cobbler recipes
in our archives. We do not consider this one superfluous, as we are
intrigued by the cream-cheese pastry crust. as well as by the fact
that it is Rick Bayless's grandmother's recipe. YUM!

Grandma Potter's Peach Cobbler
Saveur # 76

Saveur - One Year Subscription 

“Gladys Potter, Rick Bayless's grandmother,
was acclaimed in the family for this dessert.”

Serves 10

For the pastry:
2 2/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
16 tablespoons cold unsalted butter,
cut into pieces
6 ounces cold cream cheese, cut into pieces
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2–3 tablespoons milk or half-and-half
tablespoons sugar

For the filling:
5 pounds ripe peaches, peeled, pitted,
and cut into 1-inch pieces
1–1 1/4 cups sugar
tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2
tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice
Heaping 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
teaspoon salt
tablespoons unsalted butter,
cut into pieces

1. For the pastry: Put flour, salt, baking powder, butter, and cream cheese into a food processor and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal,
6–10 pulses. Drizzle in vinegar and 3 tbsp. cold water and pulse until mixture begins to clump together (it won't form a ball), 6–10 pulses. Transfer to a large sheet of plastic wrap, press dough together, gather plastic wrap over dough, then flatten into a 10" square. Refrigerate
dough for 1 hour.
2. For the filling: Combine peaches, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice,
nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl and set aside.

3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut off two-thirds of the dough, roll
out on a floured surface into a 14" x 18" rectangle, and ease into a
9x13-inch baking dish. Brush rim of dough with milk, fill pastry with peaches, and dot with butter. Roll remaining dough out on floured
surface into a 10x14-inch rectangle, cut lengthwise into 12 strips,
and lay on top of filling in a lattice pattern. Crimp and trim edges.
Brush strips with milk and sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake for
15 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees F, and bake until pastry is
golden brown, 30-40 minutes more. Let cool briefly before serving.
