Senior Size Birthday Cobbler

When I asked my Mom if she wanted me to make a birthday cake for her day (# 91, not 19) at the Senior Center, she said "No, make me a peach cobbler".  That was a much easier task for me than a cake. This one is whole grain, with no fat and less than 2 teaspoons of added sugar per serving.  That left room for ice cream!  The best part about it is that everyone loved it. 

I made the cobbler in a 9 X 16 inch pan, then cooled and covered.  When we arrived at the center, I reheated the cobbler, covered in foil, in a 300F. oven for 40 minutes.  The ice cream was scooped onto bowls of hot cobbler and served.
