Recipe by TxBluebonnet
A wonderfully tangy peach cobbler that I found in a supplement to the Sunday newspaper years ago. I don't think I've ever served it to anyone who hasn't liked it. The filling is also great for a pie. For a really decadent dessert, serve this with a scoop of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream! YUM!! The preparation time is approximate since I've never timed it. The cook time includes chill time for the dough.

Oh my gosh this is good. I have so many peaches and I'm trying to come up with different recipes for them. I'm so glad I picked this one as one of them. My crust kinda fell apart but I put it back together best I could. Brought it to work to share and I'm having some right now. I'm sure I will make this one again. Thanks!!
