  1. Easy and great tasting!
  2. I have made this twice. It is easy and delicious. The first time I made it, I followed directions exactly as written but found it to be too sweet for my taste. The second time I made it I cut back on the sugar. The peaches were very sweet on their own so I only added the lemon juice and two tablespoons of sugar and half a cup of sugar to the cobbler. The family still loved it.
  3. I followed the recipe exactly. Its cooking right now. For some reason, the cobbler is bursting up and over the edges of my 9x13 glass dish and plopping on the the floor of the oven. Of course its burning and filling my house with smoke! Anyone else have this issue? Im at about sea level.
  4. Great and very easy!
  5. Everyone loved this recipe. I used a 9 x 8 Pan so that cobbler would be deeper, only change. Will make again and again.


<p>I'm a WAHM of 2. I paint and sell my original shabby and primitive signs in my online stores called the Shabby Sign Shoppe. Keeps me busy and helps keep the roof over our heads, but takes away from two favorite pastimes--cooking and working in the yard.</p> <p>To be in the kitchen uninterrupted is my form of relaxation and I try to get in there and cook at least 2-3 good meals a week. I'm trying to get healthier with cooking, but it is so hard with all these amazing Food.com recipes shouting Make Me, Make Me. I discovered Recipezaar in 2002. I tell EVERYONE about it and it's definately my go-to recipe site. Other sites pale in comparison.</p> <p>Whenever I search for a recipe, Recipezaar never lets me down. I typically ONLY try 5 star recipes, but sometimes will try unrated ones if I am feeling frisky and the recipe is from a chef I'm familar with. Kittencal, MizzNezz and Wildflour are 3 of my favorites.</p> <p>Diehard foodies tend to annoy. I should know because I used to be one! Culinary school will do that to you, but it's just not living in the real world.</p>
