Mom's Magic Peach Cobbler

Mom's Magic Peach Cobbler

My Mom’s MAGIC peach cobbler is the most perfect dessert! It’s warm and sweet, crunchy and juicy! This was THE dessert I asked her to make for my birthday every year! It's cake with fruit and you can even put ice cream on top (although I prefer whipped cream)!
