6 large peaches, pitted & sliced thin
1/3 cup sugar
½ tsp. almond extract

1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt

½ cup milk

Cook sliced peaches with sugar over medium heat in a saucepan until the peaches soften and a liquid forms, about 10 minutes. Add almond extract.
In a bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in 3 Tbsp. butter with your fingertips or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk until just combined.
Butter a 9” x 13” pan with 2 Tbsp. softened butter. Add batter, then peaches on top.
Bake 425 degrees F. for 20 minutes. If need be, bake a few more minutes until the crust is golden brown.
If you like, serve with vanilla ice cream.
