Healthy Swaps Southern Style Peach-Almond Cobbler
(*see dietary notes)
August is high season for Colorado peaches. So enjoy them at their peak by making this Southern Living Easy Peach Cobbler recipe which has been revised with "Healthy Swaps" in order to reduce the amount of calories, fat, carbohydrates, and cholesterol per serving, yet still is a delicious and satisfying (and guiltless) home style dessert. Try topping this cobbler with a dollop of Easy Homemade Peach-Almond Soft Serve (recipe follows) and a sprinkling of sliced toasted almonds for a doubly "Peachy" dessert.
