A Delightful Summer Dessert
There’s no better dessert during the summer months than one made with sweet, juicy, fresh peaches. Great on their own and enjoyed just as nature intended, we love a dish baked with a butter crust like this Classic Peach Cobbler and it couldn’t be simpler to make!
The peaches become even more decadent when baked and the buttery topping is the perfect contrast…like a crispy, sweet blanket.
Melted butter, a quick batter and tender sliced peaches tossed with sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg are all baked until golden brown.
This easy peach cobbler recipe courtesy of Kellie Hemmerly of the Suburban Soapbox will be your go-to summer dessert for any occasion.
It’s a fantastic end to any summer cookout….and don’t forget the vanilla ice cream.
