Prepared with fresh peaches, this dessert is out of this world. I was raised in Oklahoma, and we used Elberta peaches right off our trees when we made this outstanding cobbler. —Virginia Crowell, Lyons, Oregon
"We love the combination of fruit as well as the ease of preparation for this dessert," shares Carmen Edwards of Midland, Texas. "Sometimes I double the recipe and serve it to guests. Everyone is always happy when they arrive at my house to find these comforting cobblers waiting for them."
“I have such a sweet tooth that even when I’m trying to cut calories, it’s tough to skip dessert. So I adapted one of my favorite peach pie recipes to make this light, no-crust delight,” writes Susan Wilson from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
My mother received this recipe from a friend of hers many years ago, and, fortunately, she shared it with me.
With Boise situated right between two large fruit-producing areas in our state, peaches are very plentiful in the summer-and who ever gets their fill of fresh peaches?
"This is great for a large family group or church dinner during peach season. The rest of the year canned peaches are fine, but, of course, fresh is best. As we say, 'Jersey Fresh!'" -Marguerite Shaeffer of Sewell, New Jersey
Canned peaches make this cobber quick to assemble. The tender cake-like topping pairs nicely with the sweet fruit filling and butterscotch sauce. The sauce should always be served warm. —Ellen Merick, North Pole, Alaska
