Recipe Tips

If you are using fresh peaches and prefer that they are peeled before being sliced, make the process easier by following a few steps. First, score the bottom of the peach with an "x". Then briefly boil the peaches, for only 10 to 20 seconds, until you see the skin has split. Remove the fruit to an ice water bath to stop the cooking process and then let sit to dry on paper towels. Then simply peel off the skin with your fingers or a paring knife; the skin should easily slip off.

To pit whole peaches, cut the peach in half along the middle of the fruit horizontally, slicing through to the pit. Gently twist the peach open by grasping the top and bottom and rotating in opposite directions until one half begins to release from the pit. Wiggle the peach half back and forth until it is completely detached.

Recipe Variations

Cobblers are one of those types of recipes that has several versions, depending on its origin, family tradition, and whether the top is crumbly (like this recipe) or cake-like. If you prefer a cobbler with a more solid top, try a recipe that includes baking powder in the dry ingredients, or a quick-and-easy version using store-bought yellow cake mix.

If you are in need of meeting certain diet restrictions, you can make a gluten-free peach cobbler recipe or a dairy-free version.
