This Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler is a nostalgic dessert filled with home spun comfort. Fresh sliced peaches tossed with cinnamon and sugar then arranged over a simple homemade buttery batter and baked. Baked until puffed and golden it must be served with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream, if you’re so inclined. It’s the dessert equivalent of homemade Southern comfort food.
