Southern Peach Cobbler

I subscribed to the local newspaper for the Sunday papers for couponing. It comes all the other days as well. In each newspaper, there's a recipe of the day! I happened upon this one a few days ago and made it last night. LOVE IT!!!! Especially when my sister-in-law gives me free peaches from their peach tree! Thanks Shera!

8 fresh peaches-peeled, pitted and sliced into thin wedges
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp fresh lemon juice (I used the store-bought refrigerated kind)
2 tsp cornstarch

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
6 tbsp unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/4 cup boiling water

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a 2 qt baking dish, combine first round of ingredients. Toss to coat evenly and bake in oven for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in water until just combined. Remove peaches from oven and drop spoonfuls of flour topping over them. Continue baking for about 20-25 minutes until slightly browned on the top. Let cool or a few minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
