Campfire Peach Cobbler

2 sticks butter (1 cup)
6 cups peeled and sliced fresh peaches
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1⁄2 cups heavy cream 

Topping

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
7 tablespoons salted butter, cold and cut into chunks
1⁄2 cup plus 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar, divided
3⁄4 cup half-and-half 

To make cobbler, melt butter in cast-iron pot. Add peaches, sugars, cinnamon and cream. Bring to a boil, then move pot out of direct heat and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes, stirring throughout.

While peaches are cooking, make the topping. In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add butter and work in with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add 1⁄2 cup sugar and blend well. Gradually mix in half-and-half until dough just comes together.

Spoon dough over peach mixture in pot. Sprinkle remaining sugar on top. Cover.

Rake out thin layer of coals. Set pot on coals and cover lid with thick layer of coals. Let bake for about 20 minutes, checking after 10 minutes.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream.
