My mom’s been making this peach cobbler for as long as I can remember and when I asked her where it came from, she said it’s been in her family for years. As promised, here you go, a good ole’ Southern Peach Cobbler recipe that is about as easy as they come.
It has a stick of butter, maybe that’s one reason why it’s so good. We don’t shy away from butter here in the South. Just ask Paula!
With vanilla ice cream, it’s a real treat! Mom and dad buy boxes of peaches at a local place when they are driving up to their house in the mountains and the boxes are $5 for over-ripe peaches. Mom puts them all to good use and not many are ruined.
She also adds a little sugar to her peaches when they are peeled, so you can do that or skip that step if you don’t need it that sweet. I think the sugar in the topping would be enough.
Out of the oven and ready to eat, after cooling a bit.
Mom is such a great cook, she has fed her family for years and years.
And she also has a green thumb too and grows the prettiest African violets on her back porch.
Hope you enjoy my mom’s Peach Cobbler!
