This is my husbands absolute favorite dessert. It's also my own recipe. It is what he has requested for his birthday for the past 20 years.

His Granny always made hers this way. So, I had to learn to make mine like hers, which I've always said it's like a deep dish peach pie...I normally make this in a deep oval casserole dish, when having more peaches, and double the filling. He has actually admitted that mines better than his Grannies.


In my opinion the crust on this cobbler goes great with it..it melts in your mouth..Yum!

Make the crust and chill 30 minutes.

Assemble:


Once dough is chilled, remove from the refrigerator and roll each disk into a 9-inch square approximately 1/4-inch thick.

Place into a 9 x 13 sprayed baking dish. I used my fingers to press into place. Bring up on the sides of dish about an inch.

Pour the cooled filling into the crust. Roll out the top crust; place over the filling ( I roll the dough onto my rolling pin, then roll onto filling) does not have to be perfect.

I cut 4 - 6 slits to vent. I brush the top with heavy cream and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake until the crust is golden brown and the juices are bubbly ( about 45 minutes ). Let cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting and serving.

Enjoy! This is also great served with a scoop of ice cream.
