Skillet Peach Cobbler Recipe

The topping to this cobbler is softer if you eat it warm, but if you let it cool or chill it in the refrigerator and then serve it at room temperature, it's more solid and holds together even more like a traditional cobbler would with a biscuit topping. I highly recommend making this the night before, then refrigerating it to enjoy the next day, but I know that's a tough thing to do!
