About the Old-Fashioned Peach Cobbler

The old-fashioned peach cobbler got its name from a biscuit topping resembling cobblestones, but over the years, cobblers have become more cake-like.

This cobbler is a great way to showcase your fresh peaches in a delicious summertime treat. The sweet peaches, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a touch of pineapple juice combine in a way under the buttery biscuit-like topping that is just divine. This recipe is sure to impress.
