    Directions
    • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    • In a medium saucepan, melt butter and sauté the onion until tender but not brown, for approximately 5 minutes.
    • Remove the pan from the heat and add the muffin mix, milk, sour cream, chiles and then the egg. (Do not add the egg first or it will scramble in the hot onion mixture.) Then add half of the cheese, salt and dill.
    • Stir to combine and pour into prepared muffin tins.
    • Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of each.
    • Bake muffins for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    • Allow to cool slightly before removing them from the tins.
    *Note: These can also be made into a bread when baked in an 8x8 baking pan instead of muffin tins.

    Ingredients
    • PEACH FILLING:
    • 6 cups fresh sliced peaches
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons lemon juice
    • TOPPING:
    • 1 1/3 cups flour
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 cup shortening
    • 2/3 cup milk
    Directions
    • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Remove the skins and pit from the peaches and cut into slices.
    • In a saucepan large enough to hold all the peaches, combine the 3/4 c. of sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Add the peaches and lemon juice and then stir the entire mixture until the peaches are evenly coated.
    • Cook the peaches over medium heat, stirring continually. Cook until the mixture boils and then continue to boil for 1 minute.
    • Pour the peaches into a 9" square or 8" x 10" rectangle baking dish. Keep the peaches hot by placing in the oven until the topping is ready.
    • Mix the topping by combining the flour, 1 1/2 tbsp. sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and stir thoroughly with a fork. Cut the shortening until the mixture is in fine crumbs.
    • Pour in the milk and stir until all the ingredients are evenly mixed.
    • Add the topping to the hot peaches by dropping spoonfuls evenly over them. There should be enough topping for 8 to 10 large spoonfuls.
    • Place the cobbler back in the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the topping is golden brown.
    • When the cobbler is done, serve it warm. It can be eaten on its own or served with ice cream.
