Hey did you guys know August is eat dessert first month? It is I swear! Well… who knows who makes this stuff up but I’m willing to run with it. 🙂
One of my favorite desserts, one I think is amazing all year round is a true comfort classic is – Peach Cobbler. I don’t know what it is about this sweet, melt in your mouth crispy little wonder but I love it! It’s amazing on cold nights served with some hot cider, tea or hot chocolate; and it’s super amazing during summer when you serve it alongside some delicious vanilla ice cream. You can’t go wrong!
Peach cobbler recipes are often really easy to make and are known for being a southern favorite. I lived in Texas for part of my childhood and I can say it never got old when we were down there. Almost every restaurant I visited had their own amazing version. So since I have such love for peach cobbler recipes I decided to share a super simple one I found with you.
So here you go, enjoy!
