Peach Cobbler Time

This recipe and the photos are mostly for my kids... My middle son took some peaches home and made two cobblers already...and I  made one for Moma's house and one for my house, so far.


We have a tree outside our bedroom window, with the best peaches.  We used to have two.  I didn't plant them and I don't do much to take care of them, so I just think it is the most awesome present each spring when I see the blossoms and know the good fruit God is preparing for us.



Separate your dough. Sometimes, I have 4 or 5 balls, depending on the size of the cobbler.


I pat the dough ball out to resemble the shape of the pan, then


Continue rolling the dough, keeping the shape...
I use my MIL's rolling pin.  Everything seems to "make better", when I use the things we inherited from her.


Cut the dough into strips.

I really didn't take the time to lattice the top, as I usually do, because I was in a hurry to go with my sisters to decorate for the wedding in Georgetown, TX, but it was still yummy!


Now, how about a little Homemade Vanilla Blue Bell Ice cream on the side! I hope yours taste as well as mine, because I have to say my peaches or divine!

Here is the recipe, but I am always making a little more dough than this, and a little more sugar...
This  recipe was published in a Texas State Fair cookbook, that my sister Beverly gave me, so you know it is good. It won, "Best of Show".          Enjoy!!!



1/2 cup of corn oil, sorry that part wasn't clear.  I also write notes and dates in my cookbook. Here I included the verse:

I Timothy 6:6 

6But godliness with contentment is great gain.

I wrote that 9 years ago, but I still recall  experiencing the joy, of busy hands, along with the peace which came, being content, with the good fruit God provides for our daily life.

Looks so yummy! We used to have the most awesome peach tree when we lived in so. California. Now we wait for Colorado peaches to hit the stands here in Nebraska. Thanks for stopping by the blog/webstite! My husband was a very busy guy getting ready for this show. Now the after exhaustion/let down is setting in. LOL !!! A couple of days and we'll be back at it! I'm hoping to get going on some of the button snowflakes like the one you sent me!
Take care, enjoy your cobbler!

A tree, OUTSIDE YOUR WINDOW? What a heavenly treat! If I had that tree you'd probably find me passed out, covered in peach pulp and juice, with a blissful smile on my sticky face beneath the branches.

BTW, the only thing that grows here is Kale. Mmmm.... sweet, juicy kale...NOT. Kale Cobbler? Never! I like kale, don't get me wrong, but I wouldn't turn my nose up at a fruit bearing tree, even if it bore only minimial, mediocre fruit!
