"Tastes good, but cobbler never seems to be done-soupy. Don't know if it's because of altitude/CO. Better recipe is 1 cup flour, instead of 3/4- used 1/2 c butter in pan...rest of ingredients the same. Peaches easy to peel if you blanch first for a minute..then put in ice water bath. Skins come right off."
"I made as directed, even with the ice cream as topping....fell flat in our house. i love almond extract in recipes too, but for whatever reason, this was not a favorite for us."
"Make this every year. I cut back on the sugar in the peaches. Absolutely delicious!"
"My daughter and I who both love peach cobbler did not care for this recipe. The flavor was off. The texture and ease of making it were great. Next time I will not use almond flavoring in the peaches, it was very strong. I will add cinnamon with the peaches instead and see if that is better. Or I will just stick with another recipe."
"This is the first recipe I go to during peach season because it's so delicious and easy to make. I love to put it in the oven when the main meal is ready so that we can eat the hot cobbler for dessert. I've also added blueberries at times over the years."
