Southern Peach Cobbler
I love to make desserts from scratch as often as I can. (I've been called a dessert snob a time or two.) But I'm also a wife, a mother of an active five year old, and a realist. After a month of being quarantined and having to cook many more meals than I used to, I'm taking all the shortcuts I can without sacrificing flavor. I used to call this my "Company's Comin' Peach Cobbler" because it's so quick and easy to make when you have people coming over, but since having company is technically illegal right now, I had to make a little adjustment.#shrug This Southern Peach Cobbler recipe uses canned peaches and frozen pie crust (don't knock it til you try it!), brown sugar and cinnamon, and best of all, it's baked to a flaky, golden brown in a cast iron skillet. I don't know about y'all, but I'll eat just about anything that's cooked in a cast iron skillet. It just makes you feel real Southern and warm inside. You can taste the years of history in every single bite. In my opinion, a girl can never have too much cast iron cookware. Hope y'all enjoy! Bon appetit!
