One last summer party

I started writing this post over a week ago.  That is before Hurricane Harvey crashed into Texas and changed everything in our world.  Thankfully my family is safe and dry but so many others around us are not.  If you want to help support to disaster relief you can donate here or to the American Red Cross.  Anything you can give will be used to help restore a family!!

Not too long ago I was asked what my favorite dessert was and I really had to think about it.  You see there is not just one that stands out above everything else, but there are a few that I crave.  First up is my caramel brownies, next would be lemon bars and third would be cobbler.  

Now I am not super picky when it comes to the fruit in my cobbler, but peaches are definately a favorite. 

It’s all about the crust

No kidding my most favorite part of cobbler is the crust.  Honestly I am a big fan of crust…period, but especially in cobbler.  Now traditional cobblers have more of a traditional pie crust, but this cobbler….well this one is special.  This crust is more like a sugar cookie.

Yes you read that right.  This cobblers crust is like a sugar cookie…and I LOVE IT!

It is so easy

Even better than the crust is how easy it is to make.  With traditional cobblers you have to roll the crust out, but with this one you do not, making it so easy.  Literally you spread the peaches out (I used fresh but canned work, just drain all the liquid) and then you spread the cookie batter over the top.  Really it is that easy.

It can be ready to go in less than a hour making this a perfect last minute Labor Day treat.
