Our recipe for peach cobbler is something we make every summer. My mother got me a Betty Crocker cookbook many years ago, and I still use it for great recipes like this one. It’s just not summer without peach cobbler.
Enjoy! And don’t forget to check out the other people who are also posting #HotSummerEats recipes today too:
