Over the years I've tried out a few peach cobbler recipes but haven't really loved any of them. Mainly this is because I have such high expectations after having my grandmother's wonderful, perfectly crusted peach cobbler around all this time.
So the recipes I have tried have failed to live up to hers. Paula Deen's I had really high hopes for. As a Southern lady I just knew hers would be perfect. But the crust was like a thick cake on top, way overpowering. So today I set out on google to find a good recipe and instead of looking at the ingredients I just google image searched "the best peach cobbler" and looked through the results. Not too cakey, a little crisp, gooey, ....
After some not so impressive photos and some really random photos of things not even related to peaches or cobblers I came upon the winning photo and recipe that can be found here on this blog. It's good to discover recipes on other food blogs, I mean that is the whole reason of creating one right?
It looked a lot like my grandmother's so I decided to search no further. Very easy to make. I forgot the cinnamon, which I was sure was a necessity, but after tasting it I didn't notice. Soooo good.
And I actually had a real occasion to make this dessert for and a new taste tester! I'm pretty sure he enjoyed it.
So, I'm sort of impressed that I found so much to write about on a simple peach cobbler but I think this will be my official peach cobbler recipe from now on.
