Peach Cobbler

Cobbler is something that represents summertime desserts in the south to me. I grew up eating cobblers of various varieties, but peach was always my favorite.

Cobbler is something in between a cake and a pie. More fruit than a cake. The batter goes around the fruit unlike a pie. Some people make them more like biscuits floating over a filling, but this is the type of cobbler I grew up with. The juice from the fruit mixes in with the batter and makes a flavor that you can’t get any other way. 

It’s summertime, and peaches (and other fruits) are plentiful (at least where I am). Cobblers are a great way to use fruit that is a little overripe/bruised. You could experiment with different fruits, too. Apple or pear would substitute easily into this recipe. Also, berry cobblers are common (and delicious!). I find that the whipped cream or ice cream adds a nice way to smooth out the sweetness of this dish. But if you don’t have any (or don’t like that), it’s great plain! 

Happy summer!
