Alas we’ve just about reached the end of August. School begins a week from tomorrow for me, and I’m so not ready. 🙁 So many summer plans. So little time. I had planned a multitude of peach recipes to test bake this summer, yet in the end, only one was able to be crafted. But as they say, save the best for last and that was most certainly the case for this Fresh Peaches & Cremé Cobbler recipe. Fresh peaches and cremé cheese (yes cremé cheese) were the base for this delectable cobbler. The pastry crust is the best part; light, flaky, buttery, and better than your grandma’s. Ok. Maybe not better than grandma’s but I dare say this comes pretty darn close. Cremé is the not so secret ingredient that makes this cobbler recipe stand taller than the others. I promise you’ll be hard pressed not to eat the entire dessert (by yourself).
