Recipe: Mom’s Peach Cobbler

Recipe: Mom’s Peach Cobbler
Don't miss the opportunity while peaches are in season to make this incredible Southern classic. (Southern Bite)

A few weekends ago, we were at my parents’ house for Sunday supper. After her usual over-the-top spread, Mom presented several desserts. Yes, I said several.  In addition to the amazing, expertly prepared Oreo cheesecake, this cobbler was something she “just threw together.”

Well, y’all know what an Oreo fan I am, but I have to say, this cobbler stole the show.

It is, by far, the BEST cobbler I’ve ever had. Not to mention it’s ridiculously easy!

The trick here is to use a box of Jiffy Golden Yellow Cake Mix. And while it’s not always the easiest to find, our local Walmart almost always has it in stock, so hopefully you can find it close too.
