Nancy Frady’s Peach Cobbler

I’ve told you before that my church cookbooks are the absolute best in my collection.  Not only are they full of wonderful, home cooked recipes, but they remind me of special people who have always been there for me, steadily reminding me of what it means to be a faithful follower of Christ.  Nancy Frady was one of those special people.  She was one of the sweetest people you’ve ever met.  Every Sunday, she would darken the door of the church once more and warm the pew with her gentle spirit.  She was a talented artist too.  I still have the floral painting she gave me for my 16th birthday.  She also was a good cook.  One of my very favorite recipes to make in the summer is her mom’s Peach Cobbler, which she shared in our old church cookbook.  We went to an orchard last week and I was absolutely delighted with my haul of peaches that I got to bring home because I was well prepared to make Nancy’s Peach Cobbler.  Want to know what summer tastes like? Just make this and take a bite…that’s what it tastes like.
