I've made this twice now for potlucks and it has received raves each time. I never have self-rising flour, so I added 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt. This is an effortless recipe that is wecome at summer potlucks.

Good news: I made peach cobbler last night! Bad news: we weren't sure we could stop eating it.

I used a little less margarine; that made tasty crispy edges! I don't buy self-rising flour, so I added 1 1/2 tsp baking powder (also homemade actually) and 1/4 tsp salt to 1 cup all-purpose flour. I used slightly less sugar too. I used 4 fresh peaches instead of canned peaches since that looked like a 15 oz can equivalent, but I wish I had had 6 or 8 peaches to use. I used some caramel popcorn sprinkles in addition to lots of cinnamon sugar. It came together quickly, and it tastes better than anything so fast should taste!

Forgot to put the cinnamon sugar on top, made it with coconut oil instead of butter, used both fresh peaches and fresh cherries... still awesome! Thanks for posting...

Thanks for sharing. This was quick and easy. I doubled as follows: 1/2 cup unsalted butter, 2 cups sugar, 2 cups milk, 2 cups self rising flour, 1 (29 ounce) can sliced peach halves in light syrup, cinnamon sugar on the top. The cinnamon sugar settled to the center. I will mix cinnamon only in the peaches and use less sugar next time because it was too sweet for me.

Very good and Very easy! If you like less breading (which I do!) this recipe is great! I used thawed frozen peaches instead of canned and it wasn't over sweet. I will continue to make this cobbler!

I used 1/2 c. butter (plenty!) and fresh peaches which I allowed to masticate in 1/2 c. simple syrup for a couple of hours to get a syrup. SSanguine's idea to use vanilla is a good one! It's a very simple recipe that tastes so good, great with cream or vanilla ice cream.

I've made this recipe twice in one week. Once for Christmas dinner, and another time two days later because everyone loved it (and because it's soooo quick and easy). I followed tips from others and used 25% less butter and sugar, and it was great. The second time, I used less sugar and butter as I did the first time, however I doubled the peaches because it's my favorite part. It was even better with more peaches. It's recipes like these that make me enjoy cooking (Quick, Easy, and Delicious).

Sorry this recipe leaves much to be desired. I came out a bit rubbery and i had to do too much tweeking. No too impressed. It did have a good flavor and it was an easy recipe but the finished product wasn't as great as many of you have said it to be. I will be looking for a better recipe.

This is the closest to the peach cobbler that I was raised on by my Aunt Peggy. It is the BEST and every other cobbler will only disappoint you after you've had this. Yummy made as a berry cobbler too.
