    I've been looking for this type of cobbler recipe. Most of the recipes I've come across either the dough is too runny or it is made with dumplings but this recipe is the best one I've tried(and I've tried alot). I have used this recipe several times and it will be the only recipe that I wil use from now on. The only thing I added to improve the recipe is to sprinkle some cinnamon and nutmeg over the peaches and sugar on top. Other than that I would not change a thing! Awesome!!!!  -  25 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I like this. I changed things by cutting the sugar in half with splenda, adding 1 tsp of vanilla to the batter, and covering frozen peaches with 1/2 cup water and a half cup of splenda. This was good warm w/ light vanilla ice cream. And it was easy! This was my second time making it, so I am sure I'll make it again.  -  17 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
