Smart and Final has 5 lb bags of frozen, sliced peaches. Cost about $12 to $13 a bag. I used these to make a big cobler:
Almost Fresh Peach Cobbler
2 cubes butter melted

5 pounds sliced peaches (frozen bag from Smart n Final)
1 – 1 ½  cups sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

1 ½ cups sugar
3 cups flour
2 TBL baking power
¼ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp salt
2 ¼ cups milk

Melt butter and pour into 10 x 15 pan

Mix peaches with 1 (1 ½) cups sugar and cinnamon in bowl

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg together with whisk, add milk, stir in milk – do not over blend – mixture should still be lumpy.

Pour batter on top of butter in pan. Lay peach slices on top of batter.
Bake at 375 for 45 minutes

Makes about 20 servings

These peaches would be really good in a rustic pie:

Rustic Peach Pie
Buy a package of pre-rolled pie crust (or make your own if you are so inclined). Use one crust (save the other one for another time).  Drape it in a 9" pie dish with edges hanging over the rim of the pie dish. Mix the filling in a bowl. Pour onto crust. Fold the edges of the crust over the peaches. They won't meet in the center(the peaches in the center will not be covered). Bake the pie for 1 hour at 350F until the filling is bubbling and the crust is brown.

6 cups sliced peaches
1/4 cup cornstarch, or quick-cooking  tapioca
1/2 cup  granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
