6-8 peaches from Florida, cut into slices
⅓ A cup of sugar from Florida
⅓ A cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
½ lemon, seasoned and juicy
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup flour for all purposes
2 tablespoons Florida sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 tablespoons butter, chilled and diced
6-8 tablespoons milk (should be cold)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. First, assemble the topping so that the dough has a few minutes to relax. Combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Using your fingers or a pastry knife, cut the butter until the flour resembles large crumbs. Add the milk a few tablespoons at a time until the dough is collected. The dough will be slightly sticky; set the dough aside while the filling is done.
Cut the peaches and place them in a mixing bowl (the peach skin can be left on or removed). Add sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, lemon peel and juice, cinnamon and nutmeg; stir to combine. Spray the cast iron skillet (or 8-inch square skillet) with a non-stick cooking spray. Pour the filling into the pan and top with spoons of dough. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the filling boils and turns golden brown.
