Peach Cobbler with Praline Biscuits

Recently my family and I went to my parent's house (also known as Granna and Poppa to their grandkids!), and ate some peach cobbler. This recipe was a variation that I hadn't had before, and everyone (my 11 month old son included) thought it was delicious!  My 3 year old daughter (pictured) helped her Granna dish up the treats!  My oldest son, age 5, liked his cobbler so much he was licking the bowl afterwards!  Ha!  Suffice it to say, if you love peach cobbler, you must try this variation!  The 'praline biscuits' (which looked and tasted like little cinnamon rolls) on top were a great addition to the sweet peaches underneath!  Thank you, Granna, for the yummy cobbler recipe! (my Mom saved the recipe from a Southern Living magazine a few years ago)

Peach Cobbler with Praline Biscuits

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup water
8 cups sliced fresh peaches (about 5 1/2 pounds)
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
2 cups self-rising flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup buttermilk

1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a pot, and add peaches. Bring to a boil, and cook 1 minute, stirring often. Remove from heat. Pour into a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine butter, brown sugar, and pecans. Set aside.

3. Combine flour and 2 teaspoons sugar. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.  Add buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.  Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and knead 3 or 4 times.

4. Roll dough to a 12 x 8 inch rectangle; spread with pecan mixture, leaving a 1/2 inch border. Starting with long side, roll up jellyroll style. Cut roll into 1/2 inch slices. Arrange slices over peach mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until lightly browned.
