Grandma's Peach Cobbler Crisp Recipe
On a recent trip visiting family, my mother-in-law sent us home with two Ziploc baggies of frozen peaches. They sat in our freezer for a few weeks while I tried to figure what exactly I was going to do with them. While my husband is a fan of peaches, I do not particularly care for the fruit. (Strawberries are my favorite!) So, I rifled through my big binder of secret family recipes looking for inspiration. I found a simple recipe for peach pie, but that wasn't speaking to me. Then, I found one for a cobbler crisp combination. I'm a huge fan of apple crisp in the fall. It's one of my favorites, so I thought I would give this a try.
It was easy to follow and didn't take a ton of effort to prepare. While it was baking, the entire house was filled with the aromas of cinnamon and brown sugar. When I pulled it out of the oven, it looked divine. It was hard to let it sit and cool. I wanted to dive right in and taste it! When I finally was able to dish it up, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I loved it! I couldn't keep my face out of the pan. It was at that moment that I knew this recipe was gold! My husband and son both echoed my sentiments and the pan of peach cobbler crisp was soon almost gone.
This is the perfect dessert to whip up as summer comes to an end. It would be great for backyard BBQ's, company potlucks, family reunions, or as a take-along dish for a holiday get-together. It's sure to be a hit!
