Paula, My wife of 26 years is a veteran in the kitchen. My skills are best served outdoors on the grill and in the smoker. I wanted to try this recipe to impress my wife. After all guys can cook inside once in a while right? I followed the directions to a tee. Especially the part that said "Do not stir". WOW!!!! I left it in for an hour like my wife suggested and it was an absolute hit! You've built up my confidence to do it again and to try another one of your recipes. Thank you Paula Deen. Two thumbs up from my wife too smile

Can't wait to try this, your recipe sound delicious

I just wanted to compliment you on how brave you were, and still are by coming back to all of us. Everyone messes up once in a while, and what they did to you was uncalled for. I have ALWAYS been on your side in that flap, and I predict you will rise even higher than before. The Lord was the one who gave you strength to rise up and hold your head even higher. It will take time, but remember that the Lord has a hand in this as well............for the good.I saw you on TV when you said, "I'M BACK!!" and it was so inspiring to hear and see that. I will always be one of your fans. Very Sincerely yours, Martha S. Sanders

By Martha Sanders on September 28, 2013


This recipe looks delicious, but I noticed that in the directions when you said to mix the sugar and milk and the flour, but slowly so they won't lump, I wanted to pass a good tip that my mother gave to me. If you mix your sugar and flour together well first, before you add the milk, there will be no lumping. My mother had lots of wonderful tips, and I miss her terribly. She was your number one fan. She enjoyed watching your shows so much. If she could she what the media is doing to you today, she would be so upset, as plenty of us are. I have enjoyed your programs for years. Stay strong and don't let this wear you down. You have a lot of friends.

Can you reheat this recipe?

By Anonymous on August 31, 2013


PERFECT!! I followed the recipe and used the youtube channel for guidance. There were things on the YouTube video that were not stated in the directions on here. 1. Make a pot of boiling water and put the peaches in there for 45 seconds and then place in ice bath immediately, the peels come right off that way! 2. Mix flour and sugar together and whisk WHILE adding milk to prevent clumping!) I recommend watching the video while doing this. It's only about 6 minutes long and helped me make a cobbler a raging success!!

By Helena on August 29, 2013


I made this for the first time and it was a hit. The only change that I made was putting it into a 9x13 pan. I also used a slotted spoon to ladle the peaches onto the flour mixture. I saved the wonderful peach juice and poured it on each serving. I had to print the recipe for the three couples---they raved about it.

By Marilyn on August 23, 2013


I made the above peach cobbler and was very disappointed with the result. It was still 'liquidy' after 1 1/2 hours of cooking. Had to throw it out. The recipe says to gently pour syrup over the peaches. Do you need all of the syrup of just a small amount? The recipe should indicate exatly how much syrup to use.

By Bev on August 20, 2013


Are you sure the syrup must be added? I used to have this recipe and made it all the time; it was always a bit hit. I lost it and have been looking for the right one all over, can't find it. I tried yours and the syrup made a big mess of it, didn't cook well, became a goo...

By Emilia on August 16, 2013


Paula, this recipe is garbage. I wish you were here so I could dump this pile of buttery, liquidy puke on your head. What a waste of my time and money. Not to mention the homeless that could have loved the fresh fruit your recipe destroyed. I should've gone with my gut to avoid any recipe from you.

By B on August 15, 2013


Sorry Paula, epic fail, and I am an excellent cook. Followed your recipe to the tee, though it looked beautiful on the the outside once you scooped into it the top half was perfect but the bottom was a congealed layer of awful dough. Scrape off the bottom and the peach and crust were good. So not a complete waste of fresh peaches, but I was very disappointed.

By A Chefs Mom on August 08, 2013


I've tried this recipe 3 times with fresh blueberries and the crust will not rise to the top. I am following all directions including self rising flour. Any suggestions?
