Mom's Easy Peach Cobbler

Peachy and mildly sweet, Mom's Easy Peach Cobbler is the perfect ending to a summer meal.

Ok, we admit it. We are crazy about peaches. Every year we make sure we go to our favorite grower in Georgia to purchase peaches, even if it means a special (loooong) day trip to get there. This year we made a swing through Georgia on the way back from a work training trip to make sure we got our peaches.

So there we were with 3 bushels of fresh, marvelous peaches! Of course, we had to share, so one crate went in to work with me and everyone was happy to take a few. That crateful lasted a couple of hours, only until word spread that there were fresh peaches in the building. So we were down to two bushels. One more bushel was used for breakfast, lunch, dinner and occasional snacks throughout the day for a couple of very juicy, sticky, lovely weeks. Half of the last bushel were sliced and frozen for treats during the rest of the year. There are a few remaining in the refrigerator, but we also made some really nice peach dishes with them.

Mom's Easy Peach Cobbler is so simple to make. We made it for an Independence Day get-together at our friends’ house. One of our friends is from Georgia and when he saw the pan of peach cobbler, he mentioned that he really likes cobbler. He ended up having two large helpings.

Cobblers are so easy to make. This simple dessert shows off the fresh peach flavor wonderfully. We used a bit of vanilla to flavor the cobbler, but next time we make it I think I’ll try a little almond extract, too. We love almond and peach flavors together. Be creative and let us know how it turns out.

For an easy way to peel peaches, go here. Make sure your baking powder is fresh. Check the date on the container.
