Delicious! Just the right amount sugar. My husband does not like anything too sweet. He and I both really like this recipe, will add this recipe to our favorites.

I am not a big cobbker fan, but my son's love peach cobbler. This recipe has been a favorite for years. It's not a cobbler but close enough. I love topping it with french vanilla ice cream or french vanilla cool whip..

I use this recipe all the time and love it. Plus my kids can help make it. I use 2 whole eggs in the topping so I dont have leftover egg whites and it turns out just fine.

I found that adding 1 cup of Blueberres with the peaches really enhances the flavor, but it is terrific with just peaches!

This was okay, but I will not make it again. We each had a piece, and the rest was thrown out.
