6-8 Florida peaches, sliced
⅓ cup Florida sugar
⅓ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
½ lemon, zested and juiced
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash of nutmeg
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons Florida sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
6 tablespoons butter, chilled and cubed
6-8 tablespoons milk (must be cold)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Assemble topping first so the dough has a few minutes to relax. Combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Using your fingers or a pastry cutter, cut in the butter until the flour resembles large crumbs. Add the milk a few tablespoons at the time until the dough comes together. The dough will be slightly sticky; set dough aside while the filling is made.
Slice the peaches and place in a mixing bowl (the peach skin can be left on or removed). Add the sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, lemon zest and juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg; stir to combine. Spray the cast iron skillet (or 8-inch square baking pan) with nonstick cooking spray. Pour the filling in the skillet and top with spoonsful of dough. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the topping is cooked through and golden brown.
