Peach cobbler seems like one of those comforting desserts. There's something very homey about it. The sweet fruit filling with a dumpling like topping conjure images of country living. I modified a recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook by increasing the peaches, sugar and cinnamon. And the proof is in the tasting, my version is just right for my tastebuds. I stumbled upon the combination of cinnamon and peaches a little while back and have paired the two ever since.
Recently I received a free copy of Cook's Country magazine and on the front cover was Texas-Style Fruit Cobbler. It never occurred to me that different parts of the country might make cobbler in a different way. I know, very narrow minded of me. I was tempted to try this new version but liked my current method so much that I passed, this time. But there's always next summer. Here's how my cobbler looked a few wks ago when I made it fresh. Yum! Enjoy.
