Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler

Our whole house loves peach season! And today I’m sharing one of my favorite simple and tasty peach desserts – old fashioned peach cobbler. Instead of putting topping or biscuits on the peaches, this recipe lets the biscuit batter bubble up between the peaches for a delicious cakey treat!

We are big fans of peach season around this house. We make them into pies and tarts, straight up grill them, blend them into barbecue sauce, use them in salads, and occasionally chop them up and throw them into sangria.

But one of our favorite peach season treats is slicing them up and baking them into a delicious old fashioned peach cobbler.

Cobbler and Crisp and Crumble and…

Okay, so cobblers, crisps, crumbles, buckles, and other desserts like this are all variations on a theme – pie. Combine fruit, flour, sugar, and butter in a variety of different ways and you get a delicious baked dessert. But what’s the difference?

cobbler like this is usually a baked fruit dessert with dropped biscuit or pie dough topping. Old fashioned versions like mine often flip this so that the biscuit dough is on the bottom and bubbles up through the fruit to make a deep dish pie.

crisp is a baked fruit dessert with a crunchy layer of topping instead of pie crust or biscuits. My favorite crisps are topped with sugar, butter, oats, and spices – you get the delicious fruit taste with just a little bit of sugary buttery crunch on top!

crumble is yet another baked fruit dessert with a coffee-cake like topping made from flour, sugar, and butter. It’s a cakier topping than the crisp has, but not as close to pie as a cobbler.

And finally, there’s buckle. I’m throwing this in the mix as well because it’s one of my favorites. Buckles happen when you mix coffee cake and baked fruit dessert, and it gets its name from the buckled topping. Over here, you can find my favorite very berry buckle.

To make this peach cobbler, you have the option of peeling your peaches or baking them peel on. You can do either. When you both cook them and bake them in the stove like you do in this recipes, the peel breaks down so that you don’t notice it’s there unless you look for it.

So here we go!
