Peach Cobbler Tips

What kinds of peaches can you use to make peach cobbler?

Now, we all know there are lots of apple options out there, but there are also many typee of peaches. For baking, stick to yellow peaches (the kind you're most likely to find at the supermarket), Babcock peaches, snow peaches or Belle of Georgia peaches. White and donut peaches don't work quite as well. If you can't find peaches at the store, you can substitute another stone fruit like nectarines or plums.

Do you have to use peeled peaches when making peach cobbler?

If you're looking to save time or don't mind a little fuzz, you don't have to peel the peaches when making peach cobbler. The skins will soften up during baking. However, if you have the time, our Test Kitchen does recommend peeling. It'll make for a better dessert experience. 

Can you make peach cobbler with canned peaches?

You sure can make cobbler with canned peaches! Drain the peaches of any syrup and use the same amount called for in the recipe. The end result will be softer, but this method will work in a pinch. And don't sleep on frozen peaches. These frozen fruits will also work. You don't even need to defrost them before stirring the mixture together.

Can you make peach cobbler ahead of time?

Cobbler is one of those desserts like crdps and crumbles that's really best served warm from the oven. For best results, serve the peach cobbler the day you bake it.

How should you store peach cobbler?

Because peach cobbler is better the sooner you eat it, we don't recommend keeping it for long. To store, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days

@Chi-town girl My grandparents in Wichita had a peach tree in their back yard. Best peaches I ever ate and grandma made the BEST peach cobbler I've ever had.

 

Peach pie is my favorite pie ever.

Bought a couple of boxes of Georgia peaches 2 weeks ago.  Gave some to my family/friends to eat fresh, took a pie to my mom, made jam (15 pts) and froze 9 qts for later pies. . . Three sweet peaches remain. . . maybe cobbler/Thanks for the recipes!!!

I have peaches..to many to eat now.  

Can I make cobbler, NOT bake it, but freeze it, then bake later?  Would the topping/crust bake as if it were freshly made?
