Southern Peach Cobbler {Recipe}

On Saturday our air conditioning went out downstairs.  My sweet friend asked me to help her and bake 2 Southern Peach Cobblers,  now she asked me to do this last week and I simply adore this friend so I couldn’t say no!  We had no idea the air conditioning would go out on Saturday.   It was 118 degrees ,  so baking was last on my list of things to do.  But I figured that it wouldn’t really matter that much if I went ahead and made the cobblers well I was wrong.  I have never baked with sweat trickling down my back and even now at almost 11pm just sitting here typing I am still sweating this is not fun!!  Ok enough whining on to cobbler!!!  Delicious Peach Cobbler!!  Now I love fresh peach cobbler but  I can never get my peaches to cook completely so I start with canned peaches that are already processed which ensures a nice tender peach inside this amazing cobbler!!  This recipe was so easy I baked one for us!!  So I ended up baking 3 of these delicious Peach Cobblers!!
