Peach cobbler is a Southern delicacy. Unlike pie, cobblers do not have a bottom crust and they are traditionally served hot with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. Cobblers come in many flavors such as blackberry, blueberry, and, of course, peach. Peach is definitely my favorite variety. The texture and sweetness of the peaches go perfect with the dough and then when you add ice cream and a hot cup of coffee on the side it’ll make you feel like you’re sitting on your grandma’s back porch talking about the good ole’ days. This recipe is quick, easy and will impress your guests.
4 cups sliced fresh peaches (approximately 6 medium peaches)
2 – 16oz packages of frozen, sliced peaches (thawed and well drained)
½ cup sugar *depending on how sweet you want it you can add a little more*
