A delicious peach cobbler with a topping that tastes just like an oatmeal cookie. Made with fresh peaches it makes a wonderful summer dessert.
Peach Cobbler is maybe my favorite dessert to make during the summer. It’s so easy, so simple, and so delicious. Serve it warm with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream and it’s a dessert you won’t soon forget.
This recipe is a little bit different from the normal peach cobbler I make. Instead of a biscuit-like topping, this topping tastes just like an oatmeal cookies- and it’s absolutely delicious.
My daughter had to be scolded for trying to eat all of the topping off. But not scolded too badly. One bite of the topping and you’ll want to eat it all too. The topping is a little bit chewy, more than a little bit sweet, and oh so good.
Be sure to use very ripe peaches when making a peach cobbler. If your peaches aren’t at peak ripeness, you may want to add some more sugar to the filling. Since the topping is very sweet and I like to put a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on my cobbler, I don’t make the filling all that sweet.
Oatmeal Cookie Peach Cobbler is one of our summer favorites and it is sure to become one of your favorites too.
