Sweet Melissa Sundays – Bear's Peach Cobbler

by Jessica on June 7, 2009

Normally, in the South, you stick with your tried-and-true, but sometimes I find that trying different cobbler recipes is fun. I loved Melissa’s addition of the lemon juice to the filling… I’ve never seen it added in before, but it was delicious and I’ll definitely try it that way again! The biscuit topping was also great! Easy and quick to put together!

Thanks to Andrea of Nummy Kitchen for such a great choice! It was a perfect summer Sunday afternoon treat! 🙂

Great job and it’s definitely a great time for cobbler, especially with the abundance of fruit these days! (I’ve missed commenting on your blog for a bit so it’s so good to have some time and catch up with all your cooking/baking! 🙂 )

That looks absolutely delicious!

I’m glad you enjoyed this! I was interested to see what southerners would think of this dish because I’ve heard some very particular opinions about southern dishes like this before (like corn bread, etc.).

Delicious looking cobbler, your topping is wonderful with the way you cut them out.

Thanks for choosing this recipe! We came so close to not making it because we’ve been really busy but it was TOO easy to not make!
Which version did you like better? We liked the peach version! YUM!


18 Jessica June 9, 2009 at 4:38 pm

Your cobbler looks lovely. I think that the diamond shape for the biscuits is 100% adorable.

Absolutely beautiful!! I can’t wait to try it with other flavors this summer.

Cute cobbler! I love what you did with the topping!

Hi Jessica!

I LOVE that first picture with the fresh peaches, cobbler served in a bright green bowl with that antique silver spoon, and matching quilted print backdrop (is that a place-mat?) It looks like a professional food designer set it up! Not to mention how gorgeous the cobbler itself came out- the diamond shaped biscuits really give this rustic dish a classy look! And I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it- my family did as well.

I wanted to introduce myself- my name is Joy and I’m a brand new blogger and SMS baker. I’d love for you to check out my site, and I look forward to getting to know you better during future weekly posts! 🙂
