Georgia Peach Cobbler

(Served by ARAMARK at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games)
Serves 6


4 cups fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
Cinnamon (to taste)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon cold water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine peaches, cinnamon, sugar and butter in medium saucepan. Bring to boil and immediately reduce heat. Simmer until peaches are tender and mixture thickens, about 20 minutes. Pour mixture into buttered 10-by-6-by-2-inch baking dish. Set aside. In mixing bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening with 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle water over flour mixture until ingredients are moistened. Shape pastry into ball. Roll out to 1/8-inch thickness on lightly floured board. Cut into 1-inch strips. Arrange 1/2 strips in lattice design over peaches. Bake 35 minutes. Remove from oven. Gently press remaining strips over baked strips in lattice pattern. Press pastry into peach mixture. Return to over and bake for another 40 minutes. Serve with peach ice cream.
