When I bought peaches for the Peach Pecan Salad a few days back, it was a much better buy to purchase a tray of the fruit as opposed to a couple of individual pieces. I used the rest of the tray to make this peach cobbler tonight. It was really good! I think we've made fresh blackberry, blueberry, strawberry and now, peach cobbler, during fruit season!
