Bisquick Peach Cobbler

I have family in Texas, and one thing they enjoy raving about is their produce; mostly grapefruit and peaches. Typically peach season starts in May and runs until late August. Peach cobbler is a favorite of many, and I’ve compiled a few recipes I hope you enjoy, but first a bit of history.

Cobbler is a fruit-type dessert covered with batter and baked. It’s usually served with whipping cream or ice cream. The name cobbler was first recorded in 1858, but no one seems to know where the name originated from.

In the British American Colonies during the Second World War, cobblers were a popular source of food as they were filling and required less butter than classic pastry. The English settlers developed this dish by covering stew with uncooked batter. Perhaps the name came from the stone walkways referred to as a cobbled path. Different varieties of the cobbler started showing up throughout North America and given names such as grunt, dump cake, and the buckle. Today, cobblers are usually made with fruit and given a name depending on the type of fruit chosen.

Peachy Bisquick Cobbler

This is a take on the traditional East Coast grunt recipe. We would normally make this with fresh-picked blueberries, but I changed it up a bit and replaced them with peaches. This is fun to make in a cast iron pan with the kids, but a glass baking dish works just as well.

There are so many varieties of a cobbler, it’s sometimes hard to pick which one to enjoy. I have enjoyed them all, but I especially favor the ones that remind me of home.
