Spiced Oatmeal Cookie Peach Cobbler


Today is my husband’s birthday and he does not like cake. I asked him what he would like for his bday dessert and he said “Oooo peach cobbler!” Great, except we are in the middle of a pandemic and peaches are not in season. Whomp whomp.

So the great thing about this recipe is it combines canned peaches, some pantry staples and a little spice from cinnamon and nutmeg. I had the ingredients to make oatmeal cookies so I decided to attempt a cookie topped cobbler!
