Simply the Best Peach Cobbler


Peach cobbler is a Southern favorite when it comes to desserts! If you have a few fresh peaches, you can make this amazing dessert in about an hour. I like making peach cobbler with fresh peaches because I grew up seeing my mom cook with only fresh ingredients. You can use canned or frozen peaches, but fresh is best. I think what makes this cobbler completely amazing is the crust on top. It's perfection because of the cinnamon sugar that is sprinkled on top before it's placed in the oven. Hope you're as peachy keen on this recipe as I am! Enjoy!

8-10 (depending on the size) peeled and sliced into thin wedges

4. While the peaches mixture is in the oven, in another bowl combine flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. 5. Blend in butter with a fork or a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in boiling water until all is combined.

6. Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of topping over the semi-baked peaches. Sprinkle entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon mixture before placing cobbler in the oven. Bake about 30 minutes until the top is golden brown.
