Skillet Peach Cobbler

I love to cook and bake but I really hate to clean up.  I don't have a dishwasher (unless you count me) and when I go on a cooking/baking and then I get totally overwhelmed and crabby....well, you get the picture....so, if I make something all in one pot/pan I am a very happy camper.

Skillet Peach Cobbler is a sweet treat

I use my cast iron skillet a lot.  Something about it makes me feel all pioneer-y.  Like I should have an open fire out back and a horse tied to my tree...but I'm not real crazy about bugs so I'll just stay inside and use the stove.  Right now you can find fresh peaches around here at great prices so I stocked up and made some Fresh Peach Cobbler in my trusty Cast Iron Skillet.  It was so easy, took no time at all and was super tasty.

This would be a great dessert, but while my father-in-law was visiting I served it for breakfast...yes, I did....he loves sweets so I threw caution to the wind and made this.  {I also made my Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole for Dinner while he was here....I was really walking on the wild side}.

    Sounds delicious! And I don't see anything wrong with having cobbler for breakfast. I'm not big on breakfast foods. And if I can cook a meal in one pan, I will. Don't care for washing dishes either. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    That's it?!?!? One pan? I'm totally in too! I stink at baking, so this sounds right up my street! Will pin and impress my hubby! Thank you so much for the recipe, Julia

  3. This looks so yummy, I would say this is almost identical to the one I make that my mom made. The only difference is the biscuit mix, I want to try this!
