The crunchy glaze topping made this delicious peach cobbler unique. Since there were four of us, and I didn't want left overs, I cut the recipe in half, and that worked beautifully in a 8 X 8 square glass pan. Thanks for sharing this great recipe, Leta.

Leta, this cobbler may very well be the best I've ever eaten! Now, that's saying something because I was raised on cobbler and have been making it most of my life! I love it! This is such a simple recipe and produces excellent results. I have never used tapioca in cobbler before, but it was great! Just make sure you do not over fill your pan because the tapioca will expand and will cause a melted-down, burned on mess in the bottom of your oven ;) . Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe with us, Leta!! I will keep this recipe handy and make every peach season!!

I made this last night. To die for...which I am eating it now after micro it for 20 seconds. Next time, which will be in a few minutes for a friend, I will only use 1 cup of sugar in the topping. I used (2) 29oz. cans sliced peaches,heavy syrup, drained. Baked in (2) 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 inch foil pans. I raised the edges on the pans incase it rose too high. It worked out great. My husband said this is the best recipe. Thank you Leta!!!!!!!!!!
