Fifteen years ago, when I first moved to the US, I had my very first taste of peach cobbler, and it was a revelation! I couldn’t believe I had been missing out on this incredible dessert all my life. The sweet, juicy peaches, the buttery crust, and that irresistible aroma had me hooked from the first bite. I was determined to find the best peach cobbler recipe.

Do you need to peel the peaches for peach cobbler?

When it comes to making peach cobbler, the decision to peel the peaches is entirely up to personal preference. Many recipes don’t require you to peel the peaches, as the baking process softens the skins, and they become tender and blend in well with the cobbler’s texture. Leaving the skins on can also add a beautiful pop of color to the dessert.

On the other hand, if you prefer a smoother texture and don’t enjoy the slight chewiness of peach skins, you can certainly peel them before adding them to the cobbler. By taking a few extra steps to peel the peaches, you can achieve a perfectly smooth filling while still enjoying the delicious flavors of the ripe fruit in your peach cobbler.

Easy Hack for Peeling Peaches

If you prefer to peel your peaches, there’s a simple trick. Score a small “X” on the bottom of each peach, blanch them in boiling water for about 30 seconds, then plunge them into ice-cold water. The skins will easily slide off.

Why the name peach cobbler? 

Ah, the delightful mystery behind the name “peach cobbler”! It turns out that the term “cobbler” originally referred to the early American settlers’ method of “cobbling” together fruit and a simple, biscuit-like dough to create a rustic, comforting dessert. The word “cobbler” itself is believed to have originated from the Old English term “cobelere,” which referred to a wooden bowl or dish. As these early settlers couldn’t easily access the ingredients and equipment required for more elaborate desserts, they came up with the brilliant idea of using what they had on hand – fresh, juicy peaches and a basic dough – to whip up a warm and comforting treat. And so, the peach cobbler was born.

There’s another fascinating theory about the origin of the name “peach cobbler” that ties it to the appearance of the dessert. Some believe that the name comes from the dessert’s resemblance to a cobblestone street due to its textured, uneven topping. When the dough is dropped or “cobbled” on top of the juicy peach filling, it bakes into a rustic, uneven surface that looks quite similar to the uneven stones of a cobblestone street. This charming idea adds a touch of whimsy to the story of the peach cobbler.
