"The granola was what made me want to try this recipe and it was a delicious addition to the traditional oats-only topping." -- peebsy weebsy
"I made a double-batch of this cobbler to bring as a dessert for a charity benefit BBQ, it was a HIT." -- aggiepam
"Instead of the typical 'bowl of ice cream' for dessert, I wanted to try something different. What a wonderful dessert!" -- Amy Bramon

"I made this and loved it!! Nice and refreshing for a summer cocktail instead of the usual red sangria." -- Deb
Tips for Cooking with Peaches
"To impress, use fresh peaches." -- Dflemxnx33
"When choosing peaches, be sure that they do not have any green on the skin -- this means the fruit hadn't developed before being picked." -- patreesha
"I used fresh peaches and left the skins on for simplicity. They were barely noticeable the first night, but when I ate the leftovers they were kind of chewy and annoying."-- blessedmommy
"To remove the skin from peaches try blanching them; 30-45 seconds in boiling hot water taken off the heat followed by 15 seconds in an ice bath (to keep the peach from continuing to cook)."-- Molly
"If you don't have flavorful, in-season peaches then go with frozen peaches--they are better than tasteless, grainy, fresh ones."-- ripple2
