I have been wanting to make a peach cobbler for awhile now and couldn't decide which recipe to use. The past couple of times I have made one, it just didn't taste as fabulous as I thought it should have. After searching several recipes, I decided to try this recipe that I found on myrecipes.com that originally came from Southern Living. It turned out better than I could have hoped for! It may be the best cobbler I have ever had and I have been a tasting judge for many of contest. It was simple and I had all the ingredients already. The breading was perfect, not too doughy or dry. My husband declared it a definite do over! He wants to try the recipe with apples next.
I used the recipe exactly the way it reads, but I noticed afterwards in the comments that several made it with half the sugar. (1/2 cup for the dry mixture and 1/2 cup for the peach mixture) I do think I will try that next time to see if it compromises the taste too much.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we are!
