I collect cookbooks. I love trying new recipes. I have found that recipes compiled by volunteer groups yield the best recipes for everyday cooking. I discovered this particular recipe in a cookbook complied and sold by mothers of twins. This has to be the most used recipe from that cookbook. It was an easy recipe for my kids to make on their own when they hit their tweens.
I am particularly fond of recipes that are versatile. I like to be able to make substitution without changing the integrity of the recipe itself. For desserts, like cobbler, I also like to be able to double or triple them without changing the consistency. This recipe gives me the best of both worlds.
Not only does this make a tasty peach cobbler, it also works extremely well for cherries, blueberries, raspberries and apricots. My mother in law likes to use fruit cocktail. Even though the recipe doesn't call for it, I like to add 2 teaspoons of vanilla; however, the recipe stands on its own as listed below.
I attend several functions that require taking food. This is a wonderful dish to prepare ahead of time, child and take to an event. It also freezes well.
When my children were younger, I used to do one a month cooking. This cobbler could be made and frozen without degrading flavor or texture.
I enjoy this cobbler served warm with vanilla ice cream and a hot cut of tea. It is a winter favorite.
