Georgia Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler Recipe that Will Make You Drool!

peach cobblerGeorgia Peaches are inspiring anywhere but being in Georgia and getting to enjoy them locally is truly a treat. Peach cobbler, peach preserves and peach pie come to mind. Of course I over bought  and the peaches were getting a little soft. Time to bake a dessert. I scoured websites looking for a recipe that had ingredients that I had available. In the end, I  adapted this recipe from a few that looked good. We enjoyed it and I hope you will too. One step in this recipe is different than in other recipes. Baking the peaches for 10 minutes before adding the topping allows the peaches to cook long enough and not end up with over done topping. At least I think that is what is intended. Enjoy! I am sure your family and guests will be begging for more peach cobbler!

Note – I wrote this a couple years back while on an extended stay in Georgia. I made it quite a few times. Recently I pulled some peaches from the freezer to make this again. A taste of summer while the temperatures are frigid! If you also saved peaches from last summer, now is a good time to bake a delicious peach cobbler.
