fresh peach cobbler

i've never been a fan of peach cobbler.  when i've had it in the past, it's been doughy and dull, bland yet overly sweet.  THIS cobbler, however... this cobbler changed my mind forever.  and has probably ruined me for every other cobbler.

get ready for your life to improve significantly.

8 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tbsp lemon juice

1 cup self-rising flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp salt
1 stick salted butter, chilled and cut into small piece
1/4 cup water that's been microwaved for 2 minutes

3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon

-preheat the oven to 425'.
-in a large bowl, combine ingredients from first list in a large bowl, tossing to coat evenly.  pour into a 9x13" pan and bake for 10 minutes.
-while that's baking, combine the flour, sugars, and salt.  blend in the butter using your fingers until it resembles a coarse meal.  stir in the water until just combined.  you still want to see streaks of butter.
-remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of topping over.  sprinkle the top with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
-bake until topping is golden- between 20 and 25 minutes.
