My Peach Cobbler

Diana’s Birthday Peach Cobbler Dessert

  • Diana’s Birthday Peach Cobbler Dessert
  • This is my mom’s recipe from her mom’s grandmother so it is from the late 1800’s. It is much different than most peach cobbler recipes and is eaten with milk over the top with brown sugar topping and served warm. But I loved it so much that instead of a birthday cake I would always ask for Peach Cobbler.
