πŸ₯« Storage

For best results, refrigerate the Easy Peach Cobbler after it has cooled completely. Kept in an airtight container, it should stay fresh for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.

To extend its shelf life further, you can also freeze the baked cobbler for up to 3 months. Allow it to cool completely, then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil before freezing. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating and serving.

πŸ“š Variations

  • Add a dash of vanilla extract or almond extract to the peach filling for an extra flavor boost.
  • Use a combination of peaches and other fruit like berries or apples for a mixed fruit cobbler.
  • Substitute the puff pastry with a biscuit or pie crust topping for a more traditional cobbler texture.

πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³ Tips

  • Drain the canned peaches thoroughly before using them. Any excess liquid can make the filling too runny.
  • Be sure to brush the egg wash over the puff pastry before cutting it into squares to ensure it all puffs up nicely.
  • Allow the cobbler to cool for at least 5-10 minutes after baking before serving. The filling will thicken slightly as it cools.

πŸ€” FAQs

Which is better for peach cobbler, canned or frozen peaches?

For this particular recipe, canned peaches are recommended as they are already peeled, sliced, and have a consistent texture right out of the can. However, fresh or frozen peaches can also be used for cobbler if you prefer, just adjust cooking times as needed.

What is peach cobbler topping made of?

Peach cobbler topping can be made of biscuit dough, pie crust, cake batter, or in this recipe’s case – puff pastry. The topping bakes up nicely on top of the peach filling, creating a rustic, cobbled appearance.

What is the difference between peach pie and peach cobbler?

The main difference is that peach pie has a bottom and top pastry crust, while peach cobbler just has a pastry or batter topping over the peach filling. Pies also tend to have a thicker, more set filling compared to the looser, saucier filling of a cobbler.

Is peach cobbler a southern thing?

Peach cobbler originated in the American South and is considered a classic southern dessert. However, it has become popular across the United States due to its delicious combination of fresh peaches and homestyle baked topping.

What is buckle cobbler?

A buckle is a type of cobbler with a thick batter poured into the baking dish before adding the fruit filling. As it bakes, the batter rises up and around the fruit in a buckled or cracked appearance on top.
