About National Peach Cobbler Day
Cobbler is a dish consisting of a fruit or savoury filling poured into a large baking dish and covered with a batter, biscuit, or dumpling before being baked. Some cobbler recipes, especially in the American south, resemble a thick-crusted, deep-dish pie with both a top and bottom crust.
Peach cobbler may have gotten its start in the south where the peaches are sweeter than candy, but peach cobbler has made its way around the country. Now, it's known as one of the most popular summer desserts in the U.S.
If your sweet tooth has been grabbing your attention lately, today is the day to tame that craving. Gather with friends or family and get creative by making your own peach cobbler. If you don’t like peaches, substitute them for another fruit such as apples or cherries.
