Praline Peach Cobbler

 Praline Peach Cobbler
This recipe from the Missouri Ozarks represents our area well because so many farms have peach trees. Cobbler is a delicious dessert for picnics and potluck dinners. It can be served cold or warm, and is especially good topped with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream.
