Naked Peach Cobbler

Peach cobbler so good, the fruit can shine alone, no crust is needed! It's a complete peach cobbler makeover, I call it "Naked" Peach Cobbler – just leave off the buttery-sugary topping to save 200 calories (wow) a serving. It's completely healthy and remains 100% delicious. But for the people who insist peach cobbler isn't actually peach cobbler without something sweet and buttery on top? I've got you covered (pun intended) there too. Better still? It's easy to mix 'n' match, some "no topping" cobblers and some cobblers "with" topping, both at the same time. Everybody's happy!
