Peach Cobbler

Working at my local farmer’s market has a great advantage: I can buy great tasting local produce for my home and business at amazing prices. Not only do I get great tasting foods, but I help the local farmers, too. I call that a win-win. I highly recommend everyone shop local and at their farmer’s market.

Last week I grabbed a basket of peaches from one of them, and I was not disappointed. They were sweet and juicy, just like a peach should be. As good as these peaches are fresh, I knew that they would be even better in a classic southern dish, peach cobbler.

Now when I think dessert, I don’t think biscuits, unless it is strawberry shortcake. I think cookies. So I put my own little twist on a classic. I mean I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t. I took a cookie base and used that as my topping. You get the sweetness from the peaches and the cookie crumbles on top, it is a perfect match. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and oh, you will be in heaven.
