Sweet! Sweet! Peachy Finish for Just Plain Cooking!

We are down to the last two recipes for Memaw's Just Plain Cooking. These last recipes are for peach cobbler.  I love cobbler! Easy peasy! (And I usually have a can of peaches on the pantry shelf!)

Quick Peach Cobbler (Memaw's)

4 tablespoons margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 No. 2 can peaches
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk

Place margarine in baking dish and melt in oven.
Heat peaches, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/2 cup water in saucepan until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, 1/2 cup sugar and milk together in mixing bowl and stir until smooth. Remove baking dish from oven when margarine has melted.
Add flour mixture, then peach mixture.
Bake 20 to 30 minutes at 375 degrees F.
Crust will rise to the top and brown.
