Salt Lick Peach Cobbler

I suddenly have a craving for the Salt Lick Restaurant, a Texas-based eatery where this cobbler originates. No, I've never been to the restaurant. No, I've never even been to Texas. But this cobbler is giving me some new motivation to visit.

This is one of those recipes that I've had for years and had never gotten around to trying.
I don't usually make cobblers; I make crisps. And I don't usually use canned fruit when I make crisps; I prefer fresh fruit. (I'm sounding like such the dessert snob!) But this recipe is amazingly good! The melted butter from the bottom of the pan creates a wonderful crunchy glaze on top that only a butter-sugar combination can achieve. 

In fact, the cobbler is intensely good to the point where, even though you're hungry for more, that second helping might be a little too much for a person to handle. (This coming from the woman who ate a second helping and then was sneaking bites throughout the rest of the evening.) You may want to save this recipe for when you have guests over. You'll hear rave reviews!
