Peach Cobbler - Bakes in 20 minutes!

Peach Cobbler Recipe


I had company over for dinner last week and when I asked them what they would like for dessert, they requested cobbler. Unfortunately I had just used up all of our fresh berries so canned peaches was what we had on hand. It works in a pinch! Most cobblers that I have made take about an hour to bake and with the kind of heat we have had in Northern California, there was no way I was using the oven for an hour! Determined to make cobbler in less than 45 minutes, I came up with this yummy Peach Cobbler recipe that bakes in 20 minutes! Works in a time crunch, and it tastes good too!

I found some extra juicy meyer lemons hanging out in the middle of my lemon tree so one lemon was all I needed, but you may need two if yours are small or firm. Most of the ingredients are ones that many of us often keep on hand so I like to keep recipes like this handy, for those occasions where I can’t or don’t want to run out to the store for a treat.
