    im not peach cobber fan but it was good, especially with vanilla ice cream. my cousin loved it though have 2 make her one quite often, id recommend this recipe 2 anyone quick & easy..
    You could jazz this up with vanilla or additional cinnamon but truly it's great as is. Just be sure to use ripe peaches, otherwise let them stew a bit longer to soften. This tastes just like my 1970s childhood peach cobbler (except I used fresh peaches rather than tinned!
    This was excellent. I was skeptical as to how it would turn out as the recipe was so simple. I decided to try it anyway as the reviews were so good and prolific. I will definitely make this again.
    This was delicious! It was so easy to make. I cut the recipe in half and used a smaller round dish and it still turned out great!
    This recipe lives up to its name, so EASY! I did have a "Lucy-type overflow" while cooking. My pan was smaller than 9 x 13, so I will be sure to use a generously sized pan next time, and there WILL be a next time. We had some peaches from our trees that were not very sweet, so I did use all the sugar as directed in recipe. I liked the way the topping baked up crunchy. I don't know if that's how it was supposed to be, but I liked it all the same. Using 4 cups of peaches worked. When I cooked up the peaches as directed in pot, there was a lot of liquid; so I poured peaches and liquid as is into baking pan hoping it was ok. As it cooked, the water bubbled down into a nice syrupy goo. No cornstarch needed to thicken it. Yum.
    Its was very good and easy to make. I do think it could have used more peaches though.
    Easy and delicious! I used frozen peaches I had saved to make pies with.. I froze them peeled and sliced with a 1/4 cup of sugar, so they were juicy on thawing. I added 1.5 cups sugar instead of two and 1 tablespoon of corn starch mixed with a little water to thicken. It was a big hit served with ice cream.
    Thought I'd already posted, to discover I didn't. Used this recipe 3X now! It will not disappoint! 1st time "Easy Peach Cobbler" fr. Dori Sanders, 6/23/2013 3:00pm: Cobbler in oven as I type! Pealig and cutting was most time consuming part, and it didn't take long. Used 10 peaches. I have a 9X13. Followed all measurements. Sprinkled nutmeg & cinnamon on top right before going in oven. My oven runs 3 degrees too hot. 40 mins.@ 375 (378 seems to work. Looks good, but not perfect. A few peaches were not quite rip,and I can see which slices are more lite yellow. Hope it taste good...Cooling...Fantastic! Took small test bit Great. No worries about the couple not so ripe ones. I think it balances the flavor. I WILL make this again. Easy, great family dessert. Picturing holidays & guests & smell of cobbler! Oh yes, and if canned peaches work, potlucks! 
    I just finished baking this cobbler and I must say...OMG! One of the best cobbler recipes I've ever tried! Made a few alterations to the recipe because I realized halfway through that I didn't have the lemon juice. Lol. I did use more peaches than called for, but once they cooked down, it was needed. When cooking the peaches, I used 3 tbsp of water instead of lemon juice and 1 tbsp of corn starch to thicken up the syrup. I also let them boil for 3 or 4 minutes to get the peaches nice and soft. The way you basically "layer" the ingredients in the pan makes for the crispiest crust around the edges when it comes out of the oven! So delicious! I will definitely make this again.
    Love it! Family ate it all and said it was the best they ever had. I too cut the sugar as our local peaches are very sweet on their own.
    My husband of 28 years has never ever had peach cobler this good. I did cut the sugar in the peaches as they were already very sweet.
    What a terrific recipe. I made the cobbler exactly as written along with throwing in a handful of freshly picked blueberries. Served with a scope of vanilla ice cream. I could have eaten the entire cobbler in one sitting. It's so good.
    My mother was not a great cook. However, this was one of her favorite recipes. I have searched for it for years. It's now my go-to for pot lucks. I enhance it a bit depending upon the occasion: Grand Marnier or Countreau and some orange zest with the peaches and pumpkin pie spice. I also add a slurry of a bit of cornstarch with the juice to make sure it's really thick. I've also added dried cherries (reconstituted in juice or liquer. I also add maple syrup to the peaches and a bit of vanilla. For the crust, I also add a bit of pumpkin pie spice. About ten minutes before it's done, I sprinkle sanding sugar/crystalized sugar on the top it makes a beautiful presentation and great crunch. I use more peaches and less sugar, too. 
    I served this as favor at a luncheon. I measured the crust and then the peaches in 1/2 pint mason jars. Put the lids on right out of the oven and they self-seal. 
    Thank you for the fond memories of my mom.
    I used 12 peaches and was barely enough. Not a deep dish peach cobbler but will try it in a smaller pan next time. I cut back on the sugar used for cooking the peaches by about 1/2 and was delicious. The peaches were naturally very sweet so I did not need a full cup of sugar.
    Wow. This was fantastic! I made this a bit healthier by switching out the AP flower for whole wheat flour. I also switched the milk for almond milk. I also used more peaches than it called for. My husband and I both loved this and will make it again.
    This was such a tasty and easy recipe. The peaches I used were less ripe than I thought was ideal, so I used almost the full cup of sugar called for with the fruit and like previous reviewers I added 2 more cups of peaches. I added another pinch of salt to the dough mixture to counteract the sweetness and the result was delicious.
    Some reviewers say they used half the amount of sugar and this was perfect for them. I enjoy a good sweet peach cobbler so I followed the recipe using the full 2 cups and found that amount of sugar just right for my sweet tooth. Many reviewers claim not enough peaches and they are absolutely right! The recipe calls for 4 cups of fresh sliced peaches (about 6 medium peaches and that was not nearly enough peaches in my opinion as they shrink down as they cook. I would recommend 6 cups of peaches minimum to 8 cups of peaches for peach lovers like myself. I will double up to 8 cups of fresh sliced peaches next time ; . I sprinkled some cinnamon on the top before cooking. I would cut the cooking time down to 30 to 35 minutes instead of the suggested 40 to 45 minutes as it was a little past golden brown at the 40 minute mark in my oven. #1 suggestion, add more peaches. Yummy! :
    Very good but I used can peaches and doubled the recipe and it turn out delicious, it's halfway gone already!! Great with ice cream:
    It was tasty, but I modified this recipe and I'm happy I did. To the peach mix I used brown sugar, added vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brandy. I usually use bourbon to bake, but I was out. For the future I'd add more peaches and less butter.
    Delicious and easy to make, everyone wanted seconds, top with vanilla ice cream and you have a first class dessert!
    Very good, easily halved, just bake in smaller dish. Only took 30 minutes in the oven. Will save to my recipe file!
    Very much a keeper. I have made this 5 times this summer. My family loves it.
    This was delicious and so easy to make. Based on some of the other reviews I read, I omitted the sugar from the peach mixture too and it worked out great.
    Easy is right. I melt the butter right in the pan while the oven preheats and I get the peaches ready. I have yet to add any sugar to the peaches - they were super ripe and super sweet, so just added cinnamon and fresh grated nutmeg. It is also easy to halve the recipe when you are only making it for two people and don't want to have it around to pig out on!
    Excellent, don't need to change a thing. Comes out perfect every time. It's ridiculously simple and easy and needs to be a staple in every home. It only requires a few ingredients that I always have on hand. Never again will I attempt to make peach cobbler with nasty hard crust that most recipes have.
    To anyone looking for a great easy peach cobbler recipe...try this one. It is one of the best I have ever made. Follow the recipe as written and you'll have a winner every time. I make this time and time again. ENJOY!!!
    Delicious. So easy to make, will keep this one on hand to make in the future. Served to children, everyone loved it.
    Sooo easy and super yummy. The second time I made it I used 1/2 peaches and 1/2 mango. The kids said this was a MAKE AGAIN!!
    VERY easy. I had ripe peaches so I only added 1/2 cup of sugar to them after reading other reviews and it was still sweet enough. I gave it a 4 only because I like a more biscuity top on cobbler and I couldn't give it a 4.5, but I will make this again! My boyfriend gave it a 5. Yum.
    This was super easy and really delicious. I have eaten my fair share of peach cobbler but never made my own. The only problem I had was that it was too sweet. My peaches were delicious and very sweet, so I was unaware that I should cut back on the sugar in the recipe. Otherwise - I loved it. Brought it to my office and didn't have any left at the end of the day!
