           ---           ------BUTTERMILK BISCUIT
                         CRUST-----------------
    3       c            Self-rising cake flour
      3/4   c            Unsalted butter
    1 1/4   c            Buttermilk
                         -----FILLING-----
    3 1/2   lb           Peaches -- peeled and sliced
      3/4   c            Sugar
    2       ts           Finely grated lemon zest
      1/2   ts           Freshly grated nutmeg
      1/2   ts           Ground cinnamon
    3       tb           Unsalted butter
                         -----FOR FINISHING-----
                         Buttermilk
                         Sugar
 
   FOR THE DOUGH, PLACE FLOUR in a bowl and rub in butter
   until fine and mealy. Do not allow to become pasty.
   Stir in 1 cup of the buttermilk, adding the remainder
   if necessary. Press dough together on a floured
   surface, wrap in plastic wrap and allow to rest while
   preparing filling. Preheat the oven to 450F and set a
   rack in the middle level. Place the peaches in a bowl
   and add the remaining filling ingredients, except the
   butter. Toss well to combine and pour filling into a
   2-quart gratin dish or other baking dish. Distribute
   pieces of the butter evenly on the filling. On a
   floured surface, with the palms of the hands, press
   out the dough to the size of the baking dish and slide
   a thin cookie sheet under it. Slide the dough onto the
   filling. Cut 3 or 4 vent holes in the crust with the
   point of a knife. Paint the top crust evenly with the
   buttermilk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake the cobbler
   about 20 minutes, until crust is well-colored and
   filling is bubbling. Cool slightly on a rack and serve
   warm or at room temperature.
