YUM! We went peach picking this weekend and had lots to use up. We made a double batch of this but cooked each one individually. One we have double wrapped to freeze. We used whole wheat pastry flour and a tablespoon of flax meal in the crust. Very good cobbler. Nice spiciness and sweetness.

This was great right out of the oven with a little whipped cream on top. I must have added too much milk in the biscuit topping but it was still very good. I will definately make this again. I might add some blueberries with the peaches.

I accidentally used nectarines but still was good! I had been craving a cobbler for some time so this helped tremendously to stop it and without the guilt! I had to add water to the saucepan and also added ground ginger & ground cloves for more warm spice. I used room temp virgin coconut oil to mix with flour and after cooking 20 min at 375F I upped it to 450F for 7min and got the golden brown crust I was looking for. Came out delicious! Topped it with cottage cheese to stay away from ice cream and enjoyed it with family for mothers day!
