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.

The peaches at the farmer's market have never been better than they are this year, and this is the perfect recipe to showcase them. My primary complaint about most peach cobbler recipes is that they have too much butter and too much sugar. I did take some liberties.

First, I used 1/3 C of brown sugar, left out the lemon juice, and used butter instead of margarine. I dropped the batter in smaller pieces. The cobbler turned out beautifully, and as a bonus, I can include this in my meal plan without shifting hardly anything around.

I would recommend this to anyone!
