Meal Planning: Easy Five-Star Peach Cobbler
One of my long-time clients had a sweet tooth rivaled only by mine, and she frequently asked about easy dessert recipes. She was in her mid 70s and didn't cook much, so one day I surprised her with this homemade peach cobbler. It takes about 10 minutes of prep and uses a few simple ingredients I almost always have on hand. She raved about it and requested the recipe so I wanted to share it with you too!
A few tips to remember:
- I melt the butter in the 13 X 9 baking dish in the oven while it's preheating.
- It's important to spoon the batter on top of the butter but do not stir them together.
- When adding the peaches, spoon them on top of the batter and don't stir them in either!
- You can sprinkle on a little brown sugar with the cinnamon to deepen the flavor if you like.
- I use frozen thawed peaches but you can use other fruits too. We've tried it with berries and apples which are equally good, but for me, it's hard to beat a good peach cobbler in summertime.
- It's delicious served warm with or without a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but it's also good at room temperature. It makes a nice breakfast treat too. Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 375. Add the butter to a 13 X 9 baking dish and place in the oven while it preheats.
