My husband and I can't walk by the skillet without eating a spoonful of this addictive dessert. Serve warm with milk or cream. Also good with apples or berries. Omit water when using berries.

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup milk


  1. Combine peaches, 2/3 cup white sugar, brown sugar, water, 1/2 cup margarine, and cinnamon together in a large skillet; bring to a boil. Cover skillet with a lid and cook peach mixture until sugars have dissolved and peaches are softened, about 10 minutes.
