For an old-fashioned treat, there's nothing that beats my mom's peach kuchen. With a melt-in-your-mouth crust and a lightly sweet filling, this dessert is perfect after a big meal. —Cathy Eland Hightstown, New Jersey

"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."

"I made this for my dad's birthday celebration - he loves kuchen; and I have to say it is outstanding. I don't even like it and I thought this was fabulous! I did lighten it up some...but not much, instead of four egg yolks I used two egg yolks and 1/2 cup of egg beaters. Next time around I think I could even cut back some of the sugar since most recipes you seem to be able to cut out 1/4-1/2 without noticing. The crust I don't think I'd change a thing, it was wonderful!"

"Delicious recipe. I made two changes with using fresh peaches and doubling the topping. Everyone raved about it!"
