This Southern Peach Cobbler is an easy and quick end of summer treat and a quintessential Southern specialty! I even have given you a gluten free option, as well!
This post is very dear to heart! One of my best friends and a ton of my cousins have been directly impacted by Hurricane Irma, in Florida! Thankfully, everyone is OK! Some had minor damage, others had a lot of damage and it will take time and a lot of capital for everyone to get back on their feet!
For this reason, I’ve teamed up with a bunch of very talented food bloggers to raise awareness for the dire need of many in the state of Florida! At the end of the post you will find a link to all of the other bloggers’ creations for this great cause! Every penny is needed, so if you can, please support one of the list of reputable organizations that could really use your help!
Southern Peach Cobbler
On to the Peach Cobbler! Peach cobbler couldn’t be easier to make! The reason for that is that I cheat! I have been up to my eyeballs in peaches and you will see a lot of the fun recipes that I have come with this year soon! Including, Peach Jam, Peach BBQ Sauce and a few other, new things that I tried this year!
How do I cheat, you ask? Well I’ll tell you, instead of making traditional cobbler biscuits for the top of the cobbler I use Bisquick baking mix! (Not a sponsored post, I just like the product!) The other cool thing is that Bisquick has come up with a gluten free version of their traditional baking mix, so if you gluten intolerant, you are all set!
The filling couldn’t be easier, either! It’s just peaches, lemon juice, sugar and a few spices if you choose to add them! You could substitute honey or any other natural sweetener you like, too!
Did you know that Florida has 1000’s of acres of peaches now! Obviously, they are known for their citrus but lots of farmers are diversifying to peaches, due a bacterial disease affecting citrus! They are not close to Georgia and South Carolina, yet, but they are working on it! Click for my Peach Salsa recipe.
