Grandma’s Peach Cobbler pie

Yummy dessert the whole family can enjoy.

This was my great grandma’s peach cobbler recipe from the 1940s and earlier. It’s so easy to make. I remember this being my favorite dessert from when I was a child. This is delicious when hot and served with ice cream or I enjoy it cold by itself. Enjoy!

My grandmother made this Peach Cobbler for many family events and holidays. It quickly became one of my favorite desserts.

I remember her telling me she got the recipe out of a newspaper more than 50 years ago. When I got married she shared the recipe with me.

This is so quick, easy and delicious all wrapped in one! Your family and friends will think you worked on it for hours.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
