Sweet peach cobbler made from freshly picked Georgia peaches are as southern as sweet tea or SEC football. This traditional dessert is as good on a hot southern afternoon as it is on a cold winter evening. Sweetening this fan favorite with our Southern Wildflower Honey adds a natural kick to an already flavorful dish.

3 pounds sliced peaches
1/4 cup Southern Wildflower Honey
3 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish or cast iron skillet with nonstick spray.
- In a large bowl, toss together the peaches, honey, cornstarch, cinnamon, and salt until well combined. Taste and sprinkle in additional sugar if needed, depending on how sweet your fruit is. Pour the filling into the prepared dish.
