This has been a family staple at the Underwood house for years. While this is usually a task we put my Dad up to, I just made it the first time myself this past week. The outside gets perfectly crisp and the inside is soft & gooey! AMAZING. It is best served warm... and a little whipped cream or vanilla ice cream never hurt anyone!
Burrer's Peach Cobbler adapted modestly via the Smokestack Lightning Cookbook:

2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter & flour a 9x13 baking dish. Pour melted butter into dish. In a saucepan, slowly cook peaches with 1/2 cup of brown sugar until soft. Add cinnamon & nutmeg to taste. Combine flour with remaining brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk in buttermilk and pour mixture into pan over butter. Gently pour cooked peaches evenly over batter. Cook for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
