2 tablespoons white sugar

  2. In a large bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Toss to coat evenly, and pour into a 2 quart baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine ¾ cup flour, 2 Tablespoons white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, butterscotch pudding mix, baking powder, and salt. Blend in butter with your fingertips, or a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in boiling water until just combined.
  4. Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of butterscotch biscuit topping over them.
  5. Then sprinkle entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon sprinkle mixture.
  6. Bake until topping is golden, about 20 minutes or until topping is cooked through (you can tell when it has a cakey texture and no longer moist or when a cake tester or toothpick comes out clean)
  7. Serve warm, cold, with or without vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!
