"I used fresh peaches in season. This one will not disappoint. The texture is really good and with good peaches it can't fail."

"I like the easiness of the recipe, but it has excess amounts of butter and sugar. You can halve the sugar and butter, and it comes out beautifully without being too rich or cloying."

"I have to say I was disappointed in this cobbler. I thought I would make a different one from my usual but I found this one wasn't as rich as I am used to. Its ok but I won't make it again. And yes, I followed the recipe exactly."

"Best peach cobbler recipe I have tried. Not as SWEET as others. Just right consistensy of the cake portion on top and that sweet sauce on the bottom - with the peaches. It was PERFECT! My family raved over it!"

"We loved this recipe! I ended up using 5 peaches (they would have been ranked medium to small). Also, I may have overcooked it a bit, so the bottom edges were a little well done (so watch for that!).

Everything else was great. The taste and the texture were both right on!"

"It's really good, but mine turned out more like a spiced peach cake than it did a cobbler. I don't know why, maybe I used too much baking powder. I used cinnamon and nutmeg and added extra peaches. It's tasty, but not what you would expect cobbler to be."

"I just made this. It was my first cobbler. I cook a lot, but I don't bake a lot of desserts.

I was nervous that I did something wrong because it looked so weird when I put it together.
It turned out perfect. I did use 6 peaches and I added cinnamon to the batter because I was out of nutmeg. I am no longer afraid to make a cobbler. Thank you."

"I might have messed this recipe up just a tiny bit. (I was forced to use canned peaches, for one, because my store wasn't selling fresh peaches.) I somehow ended up with a cobbler that wasn't fully cooked. I think, next time, I will use two or three large cans of canned peaches, and double or triple the sugar to match, and then cook it just a little longer. I think if it hadn't been undercooked, this would have been a fabulous recipe. (Afterall, all the edge pieces tasted great!)"

"This cobbler was very good. I did add some cinnamon to the flour mixture and cut down the butter and sugar a bit. It is pretty sweet even though I did that. I would make it again but think I am more of a "crisp" fan than a "cobbler" fan. But it was delicious!"

"Very Very Good! Easy and very tasty. I doubled everything and baked in a 13 x 9 pan. Didn't run over like some people mentioned. Will make again, but maybe with a little less sugar and butter. If I try with blueberries or apples, do I need to alternate anything. Would love to try with those fruits as well."
