Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler
Excellent! After trying many recipes, I think this is my favorite. I made it exactly according to the recipe other than using only about half of the amount of the cinnamon/sugar sprinkled on top.
For my own taste, I would probably cut down a little on the sugar next time, as my husband and I both prefer our desserts a little less sweet than most people.
I would probably also use more cornstarch, since it came out pretty liquidy. (But my peaches were a bit overripe and very juicy.)
A lot of people have commented that there isn't enough topping. The recipe calls for a 2-quart baking dish - that's an 8x8" pan. It sounds like a lot of the people are using 9x13 pans - that has nearly twice the surface size, so of course the topping isn't enough for that size pan. In an 8x8 pan, the topping was enough to just cover the top completely. With more batter in that size pan, the topping might not cook all the way through.
But with that said, I do agree that the amount of peaches was a bit much for that size pan and the amount of topping. I'd probably only use 6 peaches next time, for the same size pan. For a 9x13 pan, I'd probably increase the peach mixture by half, and double the topping.
