Peaches are baked with butter and sugar under a biscuit-like topping. Serve warm with cream, custard or ice cream.
Here are some tips for this cobbler recipe. If you want to reduce the fat, you can reduce the butter to 1/4 cup and the oil to 1/2 cup without compromising the flavor. This is a crust-heavy recipe. If you want more emphasis on the peaches, just make half the topping ingredients or make two pans of peaches and divide one crust recipe over them. You can also add flavors to the crust (like vanilla or almond extract) or a splash of flavor to the peaches (like amaretto). You can change the cinnamon to nutmeg or a combination of spices if you like, or sprinkle the top with chopped nuts before baking. - 06 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was very good but I also altered it slightly after reading a few reviews. I cut the oil and butter in half. I aslo cut the white sugar to 1 1/2 cups. It was perfect, not too sweet at all. - 12 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very dissappointing. The first few bites were wonderful because I like sweet food. But then it was overpowering. If I use this recipe again, I'll only use half of the topping ingredients. Also, I'll use the butter for the topping and skip the oil. Right now I'm picking out the peaches to eat them. - 05 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
