Easy-Peasy Peach Cobbler

I don’t know what it’s like where you live, but here in Texas, the produce aisles and fruit stands are full of peaches. Last week, I bought two pounds and I’ve enjoyed them immensely — to the point I had juice running down my chin! Yesterday, however, I noticed some of the peaches were extra soft and a couple had some brown spots. Obviously, they were past their prime and needed to be eaten quickly. So I did what any expectant mama-to-be would do on a day she’s not feeling well and skipped the gym: I made peach cobbler.

My great-grandmother, Nannie, used to make peach cobblers that would make a grown man sink to his knees. Her recipe has a thick, biscuit-like dough and makes enough to feed a village. When I decided to make this cobbler, I also discovered the all-purpose flour container was empty and there was just enough Bisquick to save the day. Needless to say, I had to tweak Nannie’s beloved recipe since I had very little batter and just a handful of peaches. Disclaimer: I was too lazy to get my big camera so I took these photos with my tablet. Also, there’s a reason my bowl of cobbler looks like soup — more on that later.

***** CONFESSION *****
I didn’t wait 30 minutes before diving into this cobbler.
I didn’t wait three minutes either.
I waited less than three seconds. Thus, my bowl of cobbler looks like soup!

      Taylor, I hope you enjoy it. Of course, I need to go to the grocery and re-stock certain pantry “staples” before making it again but it still turned out great. LOL

      Husband won’t eat it either, says it’s too sweet. That’s okay, MORE FOR ME!!!!!! Actually, since I’ve become pregnant and completely eliminated sugar and caffeine from my diet, this cobbler is really sweet, but I still enjoyed and savored every bite ……. until my sugar rush crashed and I had a belly ache! HAHAHAHAHAHA

    I called my great-grandmother Nannie, too! And I love the peach cobbler recipe handed down from her 🙂
    (Mine also has a lot of sugar!)

      Awwww Nannie’s are the best! She was a jewel of a woman, I miss her dearly and wish she were here to meet Husband and our son (due in December) but her quirky personality and Nannie-isms live on!!!!
