Go to Desserts- Easy Peach Cobbler :: Lessons in Hospitality

Easy Peach Cobbler

A hospitality trick I have learned is that I need a dessert that is my “go to, easy-peasy, don’t have to think about it” Dessert.  Sometimes a gal just needs a dessert that she can make without too much thought.  But you also want one that tastes good.  This is it.  I think you will like it.

So this Lesson in Hospitality is about making an Easy Peach Cobbler.

I keep all the ingredients for this one in the pantry, and I can whip it up in a flash.  I can make it when I am running late and people love it. Comfort food at its best.  The key to this recipe being easy is I have made it so many times.  Over and over.  I’ve made it for family, friends, small groups, supper clubs, bible studies, pot-lucks, new moms,  ladies lunches, summer bbqs, and high school events.  Shwoo.  It has gotten a lotta mileage at our house.

This is also a great recipe for teaching to a college student who needs an easy dessert to try out on roommates or friends.

Go try it yourself.
