Enjoy the seasons ripest peaches in this classic Peach Cobbler dessert and it’s perfect with a side of ice cream.
Well last Thursday was my mother-in-laws birthday, I asked her what kind of cake she wanted or if there was some other treat she would prefer and she told me she wanted peach cobbler. Which obviously is a fantastic choice!
I absolutely LOVE fruit desserts, especially when they’re served warm with vanilla ice cream. Maybe it’s another great taste of summer, or just that it reminds me of my childhood. I’m not sure? But if you love peaches and you’re feeling like some cobbler, I suggest you give this recipe a try; enjoy and happy baking!
