Southern Peach Cobbler and Award

I found some beautiful white peaches the other day at the store.  We love peaches at my house.  In fact,  I put some away in a special hiding place so I could make one of my favorite desserts  - Peach Cobbler. I do love a good cobbler.  To me, it is just as good as pie and so easy to make.

In this recipe I found from "" a biscuit dough is made and dropped over the fruit mixture.   When making the biscuit dough, instead of cutting my butter into small pieces, I grate my butter.  I find it is easier to blend with my fingertips.   Then you sprinkle white sugar and cinnamon over the whole thing.  My it is good:)   The family loved this cobbler, too - not a crumb was left.

A great big THANK YOU to Caity from the Awkward Kitchenette Blog for nominating me for this award.  I greatly appreciate it:)

  6. Hi Geri! Congrats on your award! I am so happy and truly honoured that you thought of me. Continue the spirit of cooking and baking ;). I love peach cobbler, but I don't think I can get peaches at the moment from my local market. Love the simple crunch on top and served warm with a scoop of luscious creamy cold vanilla ice-cream. LOL.. xoxo
