I'm getting hungry just looking at this! Cobbler is one of my favorite dishes!

I loved the cobbler topping. It wasn't too sugary, and it balanced the peaches very well.

This was delicious! The crispy crust contrasted perfectly with the gooey peach filling.

Oh my gosh, this was so tasty! The topping was perfectly flavored. Can't wait to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream next time!

A delicious way to use end of summer peaches. Reminds me of my mom's peach pie!

This is such a good recipe! I would make it again in a heartbeat.

The crust for this cobbler literally melted in my mouth - what more could you ask for?! The brown sugar and cinnamon really took the peaches to another level. Yum!
