Peach cobbler is one of my family’s favorite deserts. Mainly, because of the great taste, but also for the fact that this desert is served on Sundays and holidays. My family anticipates the sweet taste of Grandma Sue's famous peach cobbler. My mother showed me how to cook this dessert when I was about 10 years old. Unlike most pie dessert recipes which can be difficult to bake, this cobbler dessert is easy to create. My grandmother grew up in Georgia around the 1940s. My grandmother did not have much but she said they made due of what they had. Peach cobbler was one of the most inexpensive deserts, but also one of the yummiest. My grandmother said that her mother would have left over dough and she did not believe in wasting anything so she would take the dough and cut up peaches and add sugar. My grandmother and her siblings would request this desert as often as they could. So, my great grandmother would make it for them every Sunday and on holiday. Ever since then, peach cobbler has been a part of my family’s traditions. Grandma Sue's peach cobbler continues to show up at every Sunday dinner and holidays, but with an extra special touch from Grandma Sue. My grandmother special ingredient for her peach cobbler:
4 cups love 5 spoons of hope 2 cups loyalty
2 spoons tenderness 3 cups forgiveness 4 quarts faith
1 cup friendship 1 barrel of laughter
Take love and loyalty, mix thoroughly with faith. Blend it with tenderness, kindness and understanding. Add friendship and hope, sprinkle abundantly with laughter. Bake it with sunshine. Serve daily with generous helpings. Then you should have a scrumptious peach cobbler.
