Here in the South, cobblers are a summer staple — and according to Yahoo! searches this month, folks all over are on a cobbler hunt.* With peaches in season (and peach as HGTV’s color of the month), there has never been a better time to try your hand at peach cobbler.

My family easily tries two or three new cobbler recipes every summer, but this recipe has stood the test of time. It only requires a few ingredients, and it’s simple enough for any baking novice to succeed. (Can you see why it’s my favorite?) So, pick up some peaches and give this recipe a try!

Peach Cobbler

Southern Peach Cobbler

7 peaches
1/2 cup butter
1 cup self rising flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Peel peaches, and cut them similar to how you would cut an apple — but a bit smaller. Melt butter in the oven in a 2-quart baking dish at 400 degrees F.

Mix flour, sugar and milk in a bowl. Pour the mixture over the melted butter. Add peaches.

Bake for 30 minutes or until brown (at 400 degrees F). Don’t forget to serve your cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the perfect melty combination.

    My dad called this "poor mans pie" and he added 1 teaspoon vanilla. I make it with blackberries that I can pick around my yard.

    I've heard from my uncle who also lives in Denver, how good Colorado peaches are. My favorite fruit. Growing up my grandmother had several peach trees that produced purple and white peaches with a flavor that surpasses any peach I've ever tasted. Would you or anybody out there know what type of peach that is?
