I'm excited to share this recipe with you! So I went out of town last weekend to visit a friend from college. She suggested I make something based on the trip, and this is what I came up with! I stopped at a pie shop on my way home from my destination, and I got the most wonderful piece of peach pie.
The peach pie made me remember the times my grandmother would make amazing cobblers (typically with fresh blackberries from my grandparents' backyard) and I thought I'd embark on my own attempt this time around.
Well, I am happy to say that my cobbler was a success, even though I failed on a few details: I didn't use a 9x13 pan, so my pan was extremely high -- not a good thing. Also, my syrup-to-peaches ratio was flip-flopped, so that's kind of a mess. But either way, my cobbler tastes good and I know my mistakes for next time! I think I had maybe 2 cups of fruit instead of 3, but really, it seemed like I should have had 5 cups of peaches compared to the amount of syrup I had!
Pro tip: Even though I am glad I bought and peeled my own peaches, it was so much work that I will probably get frozen peaches in the future. I know that's probably a cooking sin, but it was not worth the extra effort in my opinion.
My aunt put together these memory books for the extended family, and included in it was the infamous cobbler recipe. The base recipe is from Betty Crocker, but the cobbler topping is from my grandmother.
