There is something about Peach Cobbler that makes me think of summer days as a child.

I love the flavors, the crust, and the homemade whipped cream that slowly melts and drizzles down the cobbler in mid-bite.

This easy peach cobbler recipe makes use of canned peaches, however, you can use fresh peaches–simple peel and slice and then use simple syrup for outstanding results.

Cook’s Note: If you don’t have peaches, fresh berries or other stone fruit will work just as well.

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 that 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!
