Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 large peaches cut into thin wedges
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

For the topping:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 stick cold unsalted butter cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup boiling water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Toss peaches with sugar, lemon juice, and cornstarch in a 2 quart baking dish and bake in middle of oven 10 minutes.
  3. While the peaches bake, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in butter with your fingertips or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in water until just combined.
  4. Remove peaches from oven and drop spoonfuls of topping over them. Bake in middle of oven until topping is golden, about 25 minutes. (Topping will spread as it bakes.)
