Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F

2. In a large bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Toss to coat evenly, and pour into a 2 quart baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.

4. Blend in butter with your fingertips, or a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in water until just combined.

Personal Notes:
I normally cut way back on the amount of sugar used to coat the peaches and in the cobbler itself, without any ill effects. The amount that I reduce by depends on how sweet the peaches are, and is usually to personal taste/preference.

I also use frozen peaches in the fall/winter months. I defrost them to almost room temp, and continue on with the recipe as noted.

If I'm short on time, you can adapt the baking of the peaches (Step 2) to be done on the stove top in a medium pan over medium/medium high heat.
