Baking peach cobler from this recipe is easy and delicious. The word “cobbler” describes a fruit dessert composed of a fruit filling poured into a baking dish and covered with a thick, doughy top. In the American South, the peach cobbler is one of the most common varieties, as the peach is one of the region’s fruit staples. Traditionally, this rich dessert is made even richer with a scoop or two of ice cream placed atop the cobbler immediately prior to serving. The primary determining factor for the quality of your peach cobbler will be the peaches themselves, so make sure you only use the freshest and sweetest peaches.
