First let me say that I love that my daddy is a peach farmer. It means an abundance of peaches and lots of different peach recipes that we can make during the season which lasts throughout most of the summer. I have to admit that growing up as a peach farmer's daughter was not always fun or easy. It meant trips to the market early in the morning, picking lots of itchy peaches in the heat of the day, late nights culling nasty peaches, and no family summer vacays. But for as hard as it was , it was also super YUMMY and lots of fun for a kiddo! Yesterday Dad brought me a small basket of peaches and I've been trying to come up with ways to use them but not have a TON of leftovers that Dan and I have to eat all by ourselves. I mean we love having leftovers and fresh desserts sitting around the house, but my waistline doesn't and my trainer might not be REAL happy with me after he reads this post!! I found a great recipe today and it was definetly yummy and on a smaller scale for our little family of two! It said that it was for only two servings but those must be mightly BIG servings because we still have two more servings left! So while the title of the recipe was Peach Cobbler for Two, maybe it should be renamed Peacher Cobbler for more than Two!
If you're a small family or you're just wanting to use a few peaches that you have lying around the house - enjoy the recipe.
