"I just made this, yummy!!! Made a few minor tweeks, cut the sugar in half and added a little cinnamon and vanilla, very good!!!"

"I felt this was a total waste of ingredients and also time. Very disappointed. Gooey texture, unlike any cobbler I have tried."

"I wasted some very good peaches and the rest of the ingredients, not good"

"This recipe is certainly as fast as the title implies. Unfortunately the resulting cobbler is only ho hum. The dough is overly sweet and heavy, firming up at the pan's edges and staying loose in the center. If I were to try this again I would add less sugar and only half the juice. This cobbler is tasty in a pinch, but it won't be winning any cobbler competitions."

"I have and will continue to make this peach cobbler recipe forever. I mix it up and pop it in the oven, while family and friends are eating supper. The nutmeg makes the house smell wonderful and it is ready to eat by the time, we are done eating our meal. It uses canned peaches and makes it easy to prepare in the winter, when fresh peaches are not in season for me, here in Ohio"
