Main Ingredients for this recipe
Peaches – You can use either fresh yellow peaches or fresh white peaches. I prefer yellow peaches as I find them a bit juicier in my region. If you don't have fresh peaches, you can use canned, just make sure to drain them first. Also omit the white and brown sugar if using canned peaches. But I recommend fresh fruit for all fruit desserts. Peaches should be at room temperature and not chilled.
Brown Sugar - Adds a sweet taste and a nice glaze to the cobbler.
Lemon – I use fresh lemon juice, but you can use bottled lemon juice if you do not have a fresh lemon.
Flour – All-purpose flour works best for this recipe.
It's one of those easy desserts that is simple and fun!
