Colorado Peach Cobbler

My husband and I have lived on our ranch/wheat farm for over 40 years. I've served this dessert for family, hired help and special guests many times. I've used other fruits that are in season, but we like peaches best.

    The recipe was great and easy to follow! although a day or two after i made the recipe , the crumble on top got soggy and mushy. I added plums into mine to get a small variety of fruits and i turned out great!

    Yummy! We had some delicious local peaches getting ripe, so i found this recipe with solid ratings. I followed others and cut sugar to 1/2 cup in the peach mixture. Good flavor, great crust crust thickness and easy recipe to follow. Would make again.

    I just made this with fresh peaches, and it is absolutely divine. I can hardly wait until after dinner so I can have some with ice cream on it (still too early in the day for me to do it now.)

    Based on all the review comments, I felt that I had to start somewhere "new". This is one of the better cobblers I have had! So...the secret to my success is: cut down the sugar in the fruit mixture to 1/2 cup. I used canned peaches that were put up by a friend and I knew they were not overly sweet. I drained all the juice from the peaches before I put them in the mixing bowl. I deleted the nutmeg and replaced with 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. For the topping, I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup and the salt to 1/2 teaspoon. The result was great! I wouldn't change a thing from my "new" version of this recipe.

    OVERLY SWEET MUSHY MESS !SORRY the peach cobbler did not taste as good as it looks.Recipe is TOOO SWEET and I love sweet, sooo decrease sugar before making this.PEACH JUICE?? Peaches became very juicy following addition of sugar. No guidance on whether to add the juice along with peaches (or how much of it) so I included all of it.Ended up with a OVERLY SWEET MUSHY MESS. Waste of my time and my fresh peaches !!But WHO READS all the comments before making a recipe?CHANGE the recipe to include options so people are aware !

    Made this recently and served warm with ice cream. The only change I would make is to add my sugar to peaches to sugar and let them set awhile to get more juice.Other than it being a little drier than I would like ( my peaches probably were not as ripe and juicy as I would have liked) it was delicious!
