Step 1

For Cobbler: In food processor, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Pulse to combine. Add cold butter and pulse until mixture is crumbly. Drizzle most of buttermilk/cream over flour mixture, pulse to combine. If mixture seems dry, add a little more. Dough should be just moist.

Gather the dough and spread out onto lightly floured parchment or waxed paper. Pat into a disc a little less than 1/2-inch thick; chill for 1/2 hour.

For Fruit: Slice peaches into wedges, toss with lemon juice. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch, spices, pinch of salt and lemon zest. Toss with the peaches and pour unto lightly greased 8-inch baking dish.

To assemble: On a lightly floured surface, using a fluted cutter or any shaped cutter, cut out biscuits gently re-rolling scraps. Arrange biscuits over fruit, slightly overlapping. Brush biscuits with cream.

In a small bowl, combine almonds, brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over dough. Place in the oven and cook until fruit is bubbling, biscuits are golden, and a skewer poked into the center of the biscuit dough comes out clean. Serve warm with ice cream, heavy cream or creme anglaise.
