Peach Cobbler

What is a cobbler anyways? A cobbler is a dessert consisting of sugared (sometimes spiced) fruit topped with a sweetened biscuit topping and baked until the fruit is tender and the topping is golden.

Cobblers originated in the early British American colonies. English settlers were unable to make traditional suet puddings due to lack of suitable ingredients and cooking equipment, so instead covered a stewed filling with a layer of uncooked plain biscuits or dumplings, fitted together. The origin of the name cobbler is not known but one can relate it to the now archaic word cobeler, meaning "wooden bowl".

Being a fruit lover myself, I love to know and try all those fruity deserts out there. And I am glad I tried peach cobbler, its heavenly tasty and creamy, just melts into mouth. I can’t get enough of it. There could be more cobblers with different fruit fillings. If you have a sweet tooth it’s a must try dessert with your favorite fruit filling.
