In season, there's a plentiful supply of peaches from our own small orchard. That means enjoying them not only at breakfast but also for dessert(s).
This past weekend, Pat made a peach pie as neighbors joined us for dinner on Saturday night.
On Sunday, he made a peach cobbler as we were invited to another neighbor's for dinner. That dinner invite unfortunately was cancelled due to a last minute family emergency, but not before Pat had already made the dessert. That's when we called former neighbors who were in town for the week to come and join us for dessert. Nothing like spreading the sweet treats around; besides it saves us from over-indulging.
This peach cobber recipe is fairly simple. If you don't have fresh peaches (or when they're out of season) use the best brand of frozen peaches available and reduce the amount of sugar. And, use a self-rising cake flour if you leave out baking powder and salt.
