Cobbler and Other Named Desserts

Cobblers crumble, and crisps pretty much are a basic and easy dessert that falls under the same umbrella.

These remind me of a pie, but without the double pie crust.

Cobblers usually have a buttery old-fashioned biscuit topping and sometimes more of a cake topping, crisps are topped with an oatmeal buttery crunchy streusel topping and crumbles are topped with an oat-less crumb topping.

These desserts all have the same common concept, but cobbler almost always has the biscuit topping.

We are huge pie fans, and if you're one too these types of desserts like cobblers, crumbles, and crisps will be a favorite in your home also.

    hello by Sandra

  15. Hi

    How do you core, slice and peel peaches.

  16. Followed the recipe exactly except I had to use peaches from a jar since I don't have access to fresh peaches here. I was nervous at first because it looked soupy when it was in the dish so I was afraid I did something wrong. It ended up coming out amazing though and the whole family loved it. Super good!!!!

    1. That's great to know you can used canned or jarred thank you for letting us have another variation to the recipe! So Glad you enjoyed this one
