Every time I make this cobbler, it just seems to get better and better. When I made this particular one to share as a recipe, I kid you not, my guys pretty much devoured it in a day. I really do need to be more strategic about when I make this and make it when we’re about to have company, so we don’t eat it all ourselves. I did get a little bit… just a li’l. And I must say that you can’t have peach cobbler without a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It just wouldn’t be the same. So, if you plan to make this, get to the store and get yourself a carton of ice cream to go with it; or better yet, make homemade vanilla ice cream.
Peach cobbler is probably the easiest recipe, besides chocolate chip cookies, you could ever make. Ingredients are simple and the crust is a press-in crust, my favorite type of pie crust. The more tedious part is peeling and slicing the peaches, but even that isn’t bad. Fair warning, though… If you don’t watch it, you may not have as many peaches in your cobbler as you first started out with… They’re hard to resist.
You can use a regular baking dish. I’ve made this in a round glass casserole dish for years, but while I was pregnant and more prone to anemia, we really started using more cast iron for cooking. So, I decided to give Dan’s favorite skillet a try.
A cast iron skillet makes a super delicious cobbler.
