Peach Cobbler with Ice Cream

Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe

Making a cobbler is super easy.  In fact, even I can do it.

What exactly is a cobbler, you ask.  Good question.   According to one of my favorite research websites, Wikipedia, the definition is:

“…a variety of dishes, particularly in the United States and United Kingdom, consisting of a fruit or savoury filling poured into a large baking dish and covered with a batter, biscuit, or pie crust before being baked. Some cobbler recipes, especially in the South, resemble a thick-crusted, deep-dish pie with both top and bottom crust.”

How To Make Peach Cobbler

Most cobblers that I am used to only require three ingredients for the crust – self-rising flour, sugar, and either milk or buttermilk.  For the filling, you can simply use a can of pie filling.  Oh, and you need a stick of butter.

I recently made a Peach Cobbler using a can of peaches in natural juices.  I added a little sugar and a couple of spices and popped it in the oven.
