What is the one dessert you have to have in the summer? Is it something lemon? Chocolate anything? Pie? For me it is definitely cobbler and peach cobbler is a must!!
Peaches are everywhere
When I walk through any farmers market or in the produce area of my grocery store I see, and smell, fresh peaches everywhere. There is just something so summery about the smell of a peach. It just screams summer to me!
Now obviously cobbler is not the only thing peaches are good for, you can grill them and top them with ice cream, or you can make a peach pie…but for me cobbler is the way to go.
Fresh when you can…
I used fresh peaches and peeled. If you do not have good fresh peaches on hand, or don’t have the time to deal with them feel free to use the canned version. Just make sure to use them ones canned in water and not the syrup if you can.
When you mix the peaches with everything it makes a delicious syrup that gives the cobbler a perfect flavor without too much sweetness.
As I said in the title this cobbler is easy to make. Literally you peel the peaches, mix them with yumminess and then drop the crust on top. There is no rolling involved, no double layering of crust and you can let the kids help drop the crust on top.
Sprinkle it with some course sugar and voila you have a delicious crust that everyone is sure to love and in no time.
I remember growing up my mom always made a double curst cobbler, and it was delicious. As I started cooking on my own I realized that as good as double crust cobbler is this drop crust is just as good & SO MUCH EASIER! This will definitely be my go to cobbler recipe!
