Cobbler Recipes . . . Gone Wild!
Homemade Cobbler Recipes Abound
Hmmm, cobblers . . . a deep-dish, melt-in-your-mouth flaky crust filled with whatever fruit you have on-hand and served hot!
Is it a pie? No, not really. Although some believe it orginated as an accidental deep dish pie gone "good."
Some say that fruit cobblers originated in America during the 1800s when necessity required westward-bound pioneer cooks to adapt traditional oven-baked pie recipes to quick biscuit treats that could be cooked in Dutch ovens. Discovering whenever and wherever cobblers began can be left to the historians. All I know is that this mouth-watering concoction is one of the first "cooked" desserts I learned to make as a child . . . so this dish holds a special place in my heart (and tummy).
And I'm not alone. This dessert is so favored that there is a bounty of cobbler recipes you can draw on. And once you know the basics, you too, can create your own cobbler recipe to pass around.

Peach Cobbler Is Still My "First Love" - Peach cobbler continues to hold first place for a great many cobbler lovers

My foreparents hailed from the southern U.S. so learning to make peach cobbler was a sort of "rite of passage." Fresh peaches were used when in-season and almost always peaches were "canned" in mason jars and put up for the winter. That way you could have peach cobbler any time. In a pinch, you can even turn out a mean peach cobbler using commercially packed peaches in tin cans.
