Peach Cobbler

I should first say that no peach cobbler will ever touch my Grandma's peach cobbler. Seriously. Every time she makes it, I find myself standing by it taking "one more bite". So good!!
When in search of a quick and easy cobbler that we could use for our first cooking lab at school, I was also looking for something that the kids could do nutritional modifications to. (First unit after safety and sanitation is nutrition). This one fit the bill and although no Grandma's peach cobbler, it was really darn tasty! Believe it or not, it's from Paula Deen and we were able to adjust the nutrition stats to make them at least better than the original!

4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
1 cup sugar, divided
1/2 cup water
6 tbsp butter
1 1/2 cups self rising flour
1 1/2 cups skim milk
ground cinnamon, optional

Preheat oven to 350 F. Melt butter in bottom of 9x13 in the oven.
Combine peaches, 1/2 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
Combine flour, sugar, and milk and stir together to get rid of any clumps. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit mixture, including syrup, over top of the dough. Do not stir. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon and bake for about 30 minutes.
