Cast iron skillet peach cobbler an easy dessert to make and my favorite way to serve it is warm with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream.
I have been having a great time making tasty desserts in my cast iron skillet. It took me a long time to get a cast iron skillet. I really didn’t think that I would use it too much. My mom had one when I was a kid and I really don’t think she used it too often. So maybe that was what was holding me back.
But now that I have a cast iron skillet I am finding all kind of ways to use it. All the way from bread to burgers to dessert. There has been good eating believe me.
Sweet juicy peaches at this time of the year make the best desserts. Don’t you think? Peach cobbler is super easy to make and just as delicious as a peach pie and there is no crust to roll out.
