A wonderfully tangy peach cobbler that I found in a supplement to the Sunday newspaper years ago. I don't think I've ever served it to anyone who hasn't liked it. The filling is also great for a pie. For a really decadent dessert, serve this with a scoop of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream! YUM!! The preparation time is approximate since I've never timed it. The cook time includes chill time for the dough.
