Peach Cobbler

Being in the South, it's imperative to have these classics available.  Especially when the peaches here are some of the best you've ever tasted!  My daughter and I love to go peach picking at a local farm nearby.  Peach picking doesn't start here for about another month but the farm still had some available when we went there to pick blueberries.  I quickly brought them home and before we ate them all I knew I'd have to make this cobbler.  

Very simple to assemble, no fancy ingredients and even if you're not a baker, this one is easy. The finished result is wonderful.  Sweet crust with a tiny bit of chewiness around the edges.  The peaches are sweet, tender and juicy.  We topped this with some of the homemade ice cream I made recently and it was amazing. 

Peach season will be here soon!  Time to get ready!
