Mom’s Peach Cobbler
Mom’s Peach Cobbler is awesome. It’s so simple really. Just a handful of ingredients, yet the outcome is amazing. Mom’s simple recipe was made over and over again at our home growing up. Anytime peaches were in season, peach pie or peach cobbler was on the menu.
Mom used to can and freeze a lot when fruit was in season, so we always had wonderful fruit desserts all year ’round. While I use pecans rather than walnuts, this was a family recipe she grew up making. Several versions of it are very common nowadays, as I’m sure other mothers passed down their traditions to their children and grandchildren as well.
We had company over for dinner a couple of weeks ago. Phil and Linda are our “movie” friends. Although they are in our Sunday school class as well, we’ve gotten together several times for dinner and then go to a movie. I love to cook and they love to eat. It’s a wonderful combination. Actually Linda is an excellent cook, too. I’ve sampled plenty of her fixin’s. We just enjoy being together and hanging out.
Our peaches had just started to come in that week and John had brought me a couple of bushels to start using up. This was actually the first thing I made with with our own home-grown peaches. So I made two peach cobblers for dinner that night. Easy Peach Cobbler was also on the menu since I was trying to use up peaches.
Since then, including the four peach things I’ve made today, I’ve made 30 additional peach desserts! Cobblers, muffins, pies, cakes, brownies, cookies–our house has smelled heavenly over the past couple of weeks! And, yes, I’ve gone through tons of flour, sugar, cinnamon, eggs and butter!
I have a few more days of baking ahead of me, but my freezer is stashed with all kinds of cookies and brownies, and John’s work place has been treated to all kinds of delicacies over the past few days as he hauls boat loads of stuff out there for everyone to sample.
I know you’re going to be tired of peach recipes after I post about 40 more, but I hope you’ll bear with me. All these peach recipes have turned out so fantastic I’m sure I’ll be able to tantalize you with one or two before I’m finished. So here’s a look at Mom’s recipe.
As I noted earlier, this is probably one of the quicker and easier recipes of the 31 recipes I’ve made to date. If you’re in the mood for peach cobbler than Mom’s Peach Cobbler is mouthwatering and delicious. If you have an abundance of peaches growing in your back yard like we do, then stay tuned, there will be lots of ways to use those peaches up in posts to come!
