Cobblers originated in the British American colonies.

The origin of the name cobbler, recorded from 1859, is uncertain: it may be related to the archaic word cobeler, meaning “wooden bowl”.

It was the Dutch and English immigrants to America who brought the traditional pie recipes and adapted them to what was available in the New World.

As settlers began moving westward in the early 19th century, their access to fruit such as peaches, cherries, and plums became more difficult.

The settlers made do with what they had: dried or syrup-preserved fruit, a recipe for biscuit dough, and an open fire, creating a rustic pie we know today as the cobbler.

If you aren’t familiar with a cobbler, it’s an American deep-dish fruit dessert or pie with a thick crust (usually a biscuit crust) and fruit filling, in this case, peach!

Best Peach Cobbler Recipe Ingredients:

2 (15-ounce) cans sliced peaches in syrup

1/2 cup butter

1 cup self-rising flour*

1 cup sugar

1 cup milk

Homemade Whipped Cream (or Cool Whip)

Easy Homemade Peach Cobbler Recipe Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Open the 15-ounce cans of peaches and drain 1 can of peaches; reserve syrup from the other.

Place the butter in a 9- by 12-inch ovenproof baking dish.

In a medium saucepan heat the butter on the stove, over medium heat, or in the oven until it’s melted.

In a medium bowl, mix the flour and sugar.

Stir in the milk and the reserved syrup to the sugar mixture.

Pour the batter over the melted butter in the baking dish.

Arrange the peaches over the batter.

Line the peaches in rows, in a single layer.

Take a little bit of time here to line the peaches–they are what makes this cobbler a beautiful dessert.

The batter will rise above the peaches, which is why you don’t want to stir or mix the ingredients when pouring them into the baking dish.

Bake for 1 hour.

If you want, you can sprinkle with brown sugar out of the oven–it’s optional.

The cobbler is done when the batter rises around the peaches and the crust is thick and golden brown.

Serve warm with fresh whipped cream, such as homemade whipped cream.

*Note: If you don’t have self-rising flour, substitute 1 cup all-purpose flour mixed with 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/8 teaspoon salt.
