Hi veg foodie! How have you been? Did the video play for you, because it's not playing for me? :-( Admin uploaded it this time for me, so I'm not sure. Isn't this a cool recipe? My other cobbler recipes, you have to add the biscuits to the top, but not with this one. This recipe has been in the family for years and it always amazes me that the dough rises to the top and makes a beautiful crust! It's almost like Magic! Guess the baking powder really does the trick! I hope you can give this one a try... just be sure to drain off the peaches first. This is even better the next day when it has soaked up the juices. We usually eat it up before the next day, so it's rare to have any leftover though, LOL. Have a beautiful weekend my friend! Big hugs to you!!!! ~Amy

this peach cobbler recipe is my all time favorite! Amy, can i use cheese instead of butter? I think cheese makes a dish more light and elegant...

Hi perceptiveeye! (Love your name... very cool!!!) It's so nice to meet you! Thank you for commenting! I've never tried cheese instead of butter, so I'm not much help on this one. I'm so sorry. However, this particular recipe has been in our family for years, and everyone just gobbles it up. I made the mistake once of not draining the peaches... it turned out too moist with lots of liquid, but it was still delicious. We ate it anyway, LOL, but you really need to drain the peaches first. I hope you can give this recipe a try sometime... it's fast and easy. :-) Have a beautiful day! Hugs, Amy

Hey Amy! I love peach desserts and this Peach Cobbler gotta be someting truly delicious and fool-proof as it is coming from you! Also, I would like to serve it with some extra peach slices! :) By the way, I am not pretty clear about the baking powder side of it - is it something I can skip or is it a must?

Hi Prezi! How have you been? I hope all is well! Awww... you are sweet to say such kind words. Thank you! I really appreciate it! :-) Be sure not to skip the baking powder... it's a must. It helps make the dough rise to the top. This recipe is really neat in that the dough mixture is placed on the bottom, followed by the peaches and boiling water on top. Something magical happens in the oven and after 30 minutes or so, the dough has risen to the top. This recipe has been in the family for years and it still amazes me, LOL. I hope you can give this a try! Have a beautiful rest of the weekend and a great week ahead! Hugs to you my friend! Amy

Hi healthyeating! It's so nice to meet you! Thank you for posting! I actually had to shoot this video twice, LOL. The first video, I forgot to drain the peaches. It was so runny under the crust... I still ate it though, hahaha. We re-shot the entire video and I drained the peaches. Can you believe I've been making this recipe for years and yet I still forgot to drain them? How bad is that? LOL. I love how the crust comes to the top! I'm so glad you gave this a try. Have a beautiful day! Hugs, Amy

Hi Amy-peaches and strawberries are my favorite fruits:-)! I am glad that you posted this recipe ...easy to make..definitely gonna try you have similar recipes with strawberries..or maybe i can replace the peaches with strawberries you think that will work?
USAFireAndRescue's picture
Hi ifoodiee! How are you? Strawberries will work great! You can even use apples, cherries, blackberries, etc. Just add 2 1/2 to 3 cups of the fruit sliced and one cup of sugar (to sweeten it). I've made this with apples before and it was great, but I think peaches are my favorite. :-) Hmmm... I just thought of something. The warehouse clubs have big bags of frozen mixed berries... I bet that would work too as long as you add the cup of sugar! I need to make a run to Sam's or Costco, LOL. Have a beautiful day! Hugs, Amy
