Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Beth Streeter


I have never had a better peach cobbler. It takes some time but it is worth it! Tastes like something your grandmother would make. I found it in a 1940's cookbook. You can freeze the peach mixture. Just leave out the corn starch. When you are ready to use it. Let it defrost in the refrigerator mix in the corn starch and bake normally. It's a great way to have wonderful peach cobbler in January!
