Crispy Crust Peach Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream

Renée G.


This cobbler has been made and the recipe passed around in my family for generations. It can be enjoyed any time of year, even when fresh peaches aren’t available. My Grandmother, mom and aunts all canned peaches when they were ripe and growing up, we got to have this all year round.

Fresh peaches may be substituted for canned peaches. Just peel and slice enough to make 3 cups.
