Peach Cobbler

This time of year peaches are fresh and plentiful.

This recipe takes advantage of the abundance and is very simple to make.

The flavor is light and delicate and not too sweet.

A perfect ending to a late summer day.

  3. Karen,

    Your peach cobbler looks scrumptious and would be nice with my tea this week :-) I don't know how you find the time to do it all!

  4. Oh yum. This looks truly amazing, Karen! I'll be right over... :)

  5. Yum! I love cobbler!

    I think something is wrong with the internet over here - your posts don't show up until days after you post them. :( (It's ok - I don't mind catching up.) <3

  6. Oh that kills me! It looks amazing and you have just reminded me that I haven't made peach cobbler yet this summer. I better change that!


Thank you for stopping by! Your comments are important to me and are very much appreciated. xx Karen
