Sometimes I daydream about all the things I could possibly cook in my cast iron skillet.  The one dish that I’ve battled with and lost a cast iron skillet to is cast iron Peach Berry Cobbler.  It’s the one dessert that I love to eat, but have feared trying to make, that I haven’t revisted this recipe in over 3 years.  This time around I’m bringing my brand new recipe and my grandmother’s guaranteed nonstick cast iron skillet, to finally conquer a Bourbon Soaked Peach Berry Cobbler with a Molasses Biscuit Crust.
