Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler

The peaches in Vancouver this year were plentiful and scrumptious.

They were a little late showing up, but well worth the wait. Their arrival takes me down memory lane to the peach tree that grew on the sunny south side of our family house. As a young girl, I was convinced it was a big secret because no one ever went to that side of the house. But I did, and there they were, plump and delicious peaches growing on a white trellis. It was like a hidden treasure.

Did you know that peaches originated in China many thousands of years ago? Now, they grow all over the world, even in the backyards of Vancouver.

I made this peach cobbler three times to get it just the way I like it. Everyone but me liked all three versions, I hope you enjoy this one.
