I love baking in the summertime because there are so many fruits to bake with. One of my favorite summer recipes is from Don’s Grandma Willis and I try to make it every summer at least once.
We visited Don’s grandparents in August of 1994 and had her Peach Cobbler there for the first time. I’ve made it ever since, and every time I do, we think of Grandma Willis.
I serve this with ice cream and/or whipped cream, whatever your preference is.
