Southern Peach Cobbler

8 Fresh Georgia peaches - peeled, pitted and sliced into wedges
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons conrstarch

For the biscuit topping:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/4 cup boiling water

For Topping:
3 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F

In a large bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch.  Toss to coat evenly, and pour into a 2 quart baking dish.  Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour, both sugars, baking powder, and salt.  Blend in butter with your fingertips, or a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Stir in water until just combined.

Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of topping over them.  Sprinkle entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon mixture.  Bake until topping is golden, about 30 minutes.
