It's my brother's favorite time of the year everyone, it's peach season! He waits 9 long months for this season to come around so that he can nag me 24/7 about making him his all-time favorite dessert, even more favorite than box mix brownies: peach cobbler.
Who am I kidding though? He requests peach cobbler all year round, but the only difference is, I don't really have a good reason to say no in the summertime. Now, I know I already have a peach cobbler recipe on the blog but he's kind of MEH about it. It's good, but it doesn't reach his peach cobbler standards. I guess he thinks he's some kind of cobbler conniseur.
Well, cobbler conniseur met his match after tasting this cobbler. Let's just say, the cobbler did not see the light of day. It was everything he had wanted it to be and he made that very clear by not leaving much for anybody else. I think my brown butter did the trick ;)
The only problem is now that he knows I can make a mean peach cobbler, the nagging will increase by a power of 4. What have I gotten myself into?
