How to make cast iron skillet peach cobbler from scratch

Peel the skin off 8 med sized peaches, cut them up into bite-size pieces or slices. Add the peaches to a bowl and mix in the sugar. You can add more sugar or take some away depending if the peaches are super sweet or not.

Allow the peaches to macerate while you prepare the topping. The sugar will draw out the juice of the peaches and the peaches will soften as it sits in the sugar.

With an electric mixer, mix together all of the ingredients for the topping.
