Birthday Peach Cobbler
by Krystal Webb from the Worldwide Ward Cookbook
1 c. sugar
1 c. water
12 fresh peaches, pitted and sliced OR 2(32 oz) cans sliced peaches with juice.
Blackberries and raspberries (optional)
1 white, yellow, or lemon cake mix
1/2 c. butter
1 (8oz) package cream cheese not in the tub
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350*. Butter a 9x13 inch pan. If using the fresh peaches, combine the 1 c. sugar and the water; stir until sugar is fully dissolved; set aside. If using canned peaches, drain the peaches and save 1/2 c. of the syrup. Spread the peaches evenly along the bottom of buttered pan. If using the berries add them also. Sprinkle the dry cake mix over the peaches. You may not have to use the entire mix, just evenly cover all the fruit. Cut the butter and cream cheese into small pats and dots and evenly spread across the pan. Pour the sugar mixture or the syrup over the cake mix. Combine the sugar, cinnamonm and nutmeg. Sprinkle across the top evenly making sure to cover the entire pan. Bake at 350* for 45 minutes. And then turn on the broil for your oven and broil for 5 minutes. You can serve this with whipping cream or vanilla ice cream.
This is a great treat when you want something different for a birthday or dessert.
