Late Summer Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler

There is nothing more summer-y than peach cobbler!

Peach season snuck right up on us! It’s time to make use of this juicy summer fruit in the best way we know how: peach cobbler! Make it in your Dutch oven for a caramelized dessert you can serve up at home or in the great outdoors.

Chef Todd Leonard shares how to get it just right. Add in some fresh cherries and apricots for an extra dose of summer fruit. Top it all off with an easy-to-make streusel you can make on the go.
