Peach Cobbler

With cooler weather comes fuzzy PJ's, hot chocolate and warm cozy meals and last night was a perfect night for all of the above. During the day while thinking about dinner I wanted to make a warm dessert and decided on peach cobbler. Have I ever made one before? "No." Did I know what was in one? "Well... peaches and maybe some flour." But I didn't hesitate I have many Southern family members and a few B.F.F.'s who can cook and well... it's good. So good, in fact, that no one is a size 4.. or 6 but that's as far as I'm going with that:)
Any who, I did remember seeing my cousin, Melissa, making a cobbler once and it seemed so easy. So, after heading over to Google I found a recipe. It was easy to make and delicious to eat. Although I do wish the crust was crunchy. So if you have any suggestions please let me know. Below is the recipe I made.

1 stick (4 ounces) butter, melted
1 cup plus 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 to 4 ripe peaches, peeled, pitted, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Heat oven to 375°.
Pour melted butter into a 2-quart baking dish (11x7 or 8-inch square). In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of the sugar, the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir to blend. Stir in the milk and vanilla until blended. Pour the batter over the melted butter. Toss the peaches with the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Arrange the peach slices over the batter. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. The top will be browned and the cake will begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Serve warm with a little heavy cream, whipped topping, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
