- Peach cobbler

So I had my first peach cobbler last week…. It was dry, tasted yeast and the peaches were tasteless. Knowing that, you can be sure that I ‘m not going to give you the restaurant name. 

My friends all agreed that it was not a real peach cobbler while I couldn’t really say anything except that I didn’t like it as I’d never had any before so I couldn’t compare.

Frustrated as I can be when I end up dinner with a so so-so dessert, I thought that first, peaches desserved a better treatment and that I should give it a try and make my own cobbler. 

It was sweet but not too much, with fresh white peaches, crunchy on the top and soft and warm at the bottom. 
My friend who is a dessert fanatic told me that it was a very very good one. 

And you know what, it took 10min !
