Reviews for Cinnamon Biscuit Peach Cobbler
"I made this for a Bus tour that came to our Ranch and they could not stop raving about how unique & delicious this was. Some said they will never be satisfied with "Plain" peach cobbler again."
"I tried this dessert for a group of friends and we all loved it. I used frozen peaches for convenience. I will definitely make again. I might add a few more biscuits. :-)"
"This is one of my favorites!!!"
"I like this recipe because it's prettier than plain old cobbler. Sure it takes more work to make the biscuits but people love it because it's something different. It's always great to add flavorings if you prefer, too. I use canned peaches and it's just fine."
"This is good. But the peaches need more flavorings also. I added cinnamon and nutmeg and sugar to the peaches. I also added extra peaches. You can also make this with a frozen bread dough. Just let it thaw out, spread it out, add the filling and roll. Let it rise a bit and then slice. But, I like the idea of using the Cinnamon Grands. I will try that next. I used can , O"Sage Raggedy Ripe Freestone peaches. They are the best for anything you need peaches for. Hard to find, but when I do, I buy them all. Thanks for this recipe. I love peach cobbler and always looking for new ways to make it."
