Peach Cobbler….Fresh off the Tree!!

Peach Cobbler..fresh from the tree

This recipe is so so delicious!  Made with all fresh peaches right off the tree…..as it bakes in the oven …..the batter rises from the bottom of the baking dish to the top and covers those peaches with a brown yummy crust…..

Glad I was able to make some cobbler this year…..

BECAUSE…

#3 peach cobbler

We have 4 peach trees on our property…….

Only two produced peaches this summer……

REASON BEING…

We had an unusual cool spring……I mean really unusual…..Here in The Lone Star state we can normally expect the last frost in late March, maybe at the latest the first week of April….

#4 peach cobbler

But not this year…..For the first time we had a frost after Good Friday!!!  My Mama always told me after Good Friday, all the veggies and fruit should be safe from frost….Surprise, Surprise…..

Woke up one morning with a heavy frost.   Our Ranger Peach Tree was loaded with baby peaches…..we even counted them….(over 90 tiny fruzzy fruit)….not one made it….  🙁

But the tree next to it, the peach blossoms were still close so we did get some off of that one….  🙂
