Easy Southern Peach Cobbler

Cobblers hands down are one my favorite desserts.   On any given occasion that calls for baking or dessert making,  I leave the task to my husband who can without a doubt work his magic in the kitchen.  This time was different I needed a peach cobbler recipe to call my own.  The journey began with exchanging ideas with friends and co-workers, then there was the endless streams of You Tube Videos, recipe sites and blog posts.  Did I mention the numerous recipe attempts in my kitchen that were failures? Oh, those too.  What was clear, is there are a MILLION delicious ways to prepare a peach cobbler.  

After several attempts with no success, I came across a basic recipe for peach cobbler and with a little improvising (buttermilk for milk, the addition of cinnamon and vanilla) turned out to be a delicious version that I can proudly call my own with “Easy to prepare”  being the key phrase.
