When it comes to making a classic dessert to go along with our family dinners, this is one of my favorite recipes to make. What I really like about this Peach Cobbler recipe is the fact that its made with fresh, not canned, peaches.
Once you have it baked, you can serve it with some vanilla ice cream, vanilla yogurt or with some whipped topping on top. You will want to refrigerate any left-overs in an airtight container.

Place fresh sliced peaches in the bottom of your baking dish that has been lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
