What makes something a cobbler?
A cobbler is a fruit dessert topping with a biscuit-style topping or batter instead of crust.
Why is cobbler called cobbler?
Cobbler gets its name from the topping which is coarse and cobbled rather than smooth like pie crust.
Does cobbler have a top crust?
Not really. While cobbler does have a topping, it’s a batter, not a crust.
Does cobbler have crust on the bottom?
By definition, cobblers don’t have a bottom crust. However, some cobblers, like this one, have an added bottom crust for more flavor and texture.
How do you keep peach cobbler from getting runny?
Cornstarch is the key. Be sure you toss your peach mixture with plenty of cornstarch before baking. The cornstarch thickens the juices as the peaches bake.
Can I use frozen peaches for cobbler?
Absolutely. They’re uncooked just like fresh peaches, so they can be used in place of fresh.
How to Store and Reheat Leftover Peach Cobbler with Pie Crust
Store this cobbler in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days. For longer storage, you can freeze it for up to 3 months in an airtight, freezer-safe container. Be aware, however, that the topping may become soggy when defrosted.
To reheat the cobbler, allow it to come to room temperature. Then, bake it at 350 degrees in a baking dish for about 20 minutes or until warmed through.

Although there are several steps to this recipe, it’s a fairly easy one. Even beginners can make it. Just follow the directions, and you’ll end up with a delicious cobbler.
Step 1: Prep
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Set aside.
Step 2: Combine the Dry Crust Ingredients
Whisk the flour, sugar, and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Then, cut cold butter into small chunks and add it to the flour mixture. Add shortening to the bowl and cut the butter and shortening into the flour using a pastry cutter.
Step 3: Add the Wet Crust Ingredients
When most of the butter is incorporated, add the ice water, and egg.
Step 4: Mix
Using clean hands, mix the ingredients together until a dough begins to form, adding cold water if needed.
Step 5: Knead and Chill
Knead the dough until it’s smooth. Then, shape it into a ball, warp it in plastic wrap, and chill in the refrigerator for 30 to 45 minutes.
Step 6: Roll
Transfer the chilled pie dough to a floured surface and roll it out to a 9×13 rectangle.
Step 7: Bake
Place the crust in the prepared baking dish and trim away the excess dough, leaving the crust only on the bottom of the dish. Then, bake it for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove it from the oven and set it aside.
Step 8: Make the Peach Filling
Peel, pit, and slice the peaches thinly. Then, cut the slices in half. Add the peaches, sugars, lemon juice, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg to a large bowl and mix. Pour the mixture evenly over the pie crust.
Step 9: Combine the Dry Cobbler Ingredients
Mix the flour, sugars, baking powder, and salt together in a small mixing bowl. Then, cut the cold butter into small chunks and add it to the flour. Cut it into the mixture with a pastry cutter until it’s well-incorporated.
Step 10: Add Water and Mix
Add the boiling water to the dry ingredients and mix together with a fork. Spread the topping evenly over the top of the peaches.
Step 11: Bake
