   This must be baked high in the oven. Adjust oven rack to 1/3 of way down
   and preheat oven to 375F. You will need shallow 2 qt casserole, butter it
   and set aside. Blanche peaches in boiling water (15 seconds if ripe)longer
   if not quite ripe. Peaches are done if you can push your thumb across the
   surface and skin wrinkles. Place in bowl of ice water, then peel with
   fingers. Return partially peeled peaches to boiling water if necessary.
   slice into wedges. Wash and drain berries and set aside. Place peaches in
   casserole, cover with berries. sprinkle with 2 Tbsp sugar (reserve the
   remaining 3/4 cup & 1 Tbsp). In mixing bowl, sift together flour, 3/4 cup
   sugar, baking powder and salt. Add unbeaten egg. Beat with fork, then
   switch to pastry blender. (You may use food processor). Mix until well
   combined (all dry ingredients incorporated and then do not mix any more).
   With large spoon, sprinkle topping evenly over berries, should be a thin,
   uneven layer (not too thick in any one place). Drizzle melted butter over
   topiing. Mix the cinnamon with the remaining 1 Tbsp sugar and sprinkle over
   the top. Bake uncovered for 15 minutes. Then increase the temperature to
   400F and bake 12-15 minutes more until topping is lightly browned. May be
   prepared ahead of time, refrigerate it and let it stand at room temperature
   for about half an hour and bake while eating dinner.
