Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe

I love summer! The long days and the warm temperatures. The thought of going on vacation somewhere—be it the beach, the mountains or somewhere in between. I love the feeling of almost being a kid again when I get the chance to splash in a pool, or eat an ice cream cone, or swing on a porch swing. But most of all, I my favorite part is the fresh produce from the garden and the fruit trees.

There have always been gardens in my life. When I was younger, my parents had an enormous garden. We had the staples of green beans, corn, cucumbers and tomatoes, with varying extras of okra or squash, peanuts or other items my dad might be trying to grow. I learned how to tend and harvest a garden when I was young, and also learned how to preserve the bounty in delicious ways.

The harvest always seems to come at the same time, or at least that is how it feels. There are always those weeks when your kitchen counter is piled high with beans, tomatoes, squash and okra—it looks like deconstructed gumbo! I'm also a sucker when friends call to say "Hey, we've got this, do you want some?" I'll never say no to free food that can be preserved for my family to use during the winter. And that's exactly what happened to me not too long ago.

My sister-in-law called to say someone had blessed her with a bounty of peaches. She wanted to know if I would like to have any to put up for the winter. Of course I jumped at the chance, thinking it would only be a few. Upon arriving at her house, I found two bushel baskets waiting—I can only hope the shock I felt didn't show on my face!

When I got home, I decided I would can a good portion of them, dehydrate a few and make peach cobbler. I love peach cobbler; it’s definitely a favorite dessert of mine. I think I could eat an entire cobbler and not feel guilty—at least not right away. I have the easiest peach cobbler recipe ever and thought I would share it with you, in case you're blessed with an abundance of peaches, or any other kind of fruit. This cobbler can be made with any fruit that you may have on hand.
