Peach Cobbler

Having southern roots, especially Georgia southern roots, peaches always remind me of my Southern Family’s Peach Cobbler.

peach cobbler Every summer trip to visit my mom’s family, one of my aunts were sure to make peach cobbler.  Every time I  eat some peach cobbler it always brings back some great child hood memories of our vacations to Georgia every year.

I don’t have the exact recipe from my aunts, but this one sure does remind me of those summer days.

 The one thing I hate about making peach cobbler is peeling the peaches.  So here is my tip on the easiest method to peel a peach without loosing the fleshy part of the peach.  

Easy method of peeling peaches

Bring a pan of water to a boil, emerge a peach in the boiling water for 30 seconds, remove and place the peach into a ice bath for 10 seconds.  Remove the peach from the ice water and pinch the peach skin and it should come right off.  No knives, simple!  The peaches will be slippery, so be careful when handling.  The picture above is what my peaches looked like after the quick boil method.  Remeber I am all about the simple way of doing things.  

Southern Peach Cobbler Recipe

I love my peach cobbler slightly warmed up with a serving of vanilla ice cream.  I think I eat most of the peach cobbler when I make it, my boys are not huge fans, but that is OK with me!  This is one dessert that I can actually get more than one serving.

  1. I love peaches. But I don’t like them cooked. So every summer when my mom would make cobbler I would just eat the crust with the cobbler juice on it. I’m sure this cobbler is delicious, maybe I’ll just make one with blueberries or blackberries!
