Apple Peach Cobbler / Pie
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. This is a great combination of fruits, and a bit easier to assemble than a traditional double crusted pie.
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Butter a 9 or 10 inch round glass or ceramic baking dish or casserole. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the apple slices in the buttered dish, and sprinkle with the maple syrup. Cook in microwave 5 minutes to precook the apples. Add the sliced peaches to the hot apples. Sprinkle with the sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice and 1 tablespoon flour. Set aside. In food processor, blend together the 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar, cinnamon, and salt. Add the butter in chunks and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the milk and process just until the dough can be pressed together. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead several times by hand, the dough should be stiff. Pat or roll the dough about 1/2 inch thick and using a 2 inch cutter, cut rounds and place on top of apples and peaches, barely touching each other. Sprinkle with the sugar and bake in the center of the oven for 35-40 minutes. Let cool about 15 minutes before serving.
