A peach cobbler recipe that’s just as good as Mom's

Summertime is here and that means backyard barbecues, picnics and camping. Nothing says summer like a dish of peach cobbler with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream.

This easy southern dessert can be made in advance and baked the day of your outing. Use my Perfect Every Time 10 Minute Pie Crust recipe to make this recipe one that everyone will want time and time again.

I don't think I've ever been to a potluck where someone didn't bring a peach cobbler. The top crust is a dessert on its own, soaked in melted butter and sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. This dessert has perfection written all over it. It may be an old-time dessert but there's a reason this dessert always finds its way to a potluck. Comfort never tasted so good!
