Simple Peach Cobbler-made with just a few ingredients, this cobbler magically transforms creating a crispy, buttery crust on top with sweet juicy peaches inside!
Living in Georgia, I always get requests for a Peach Cobbler recipe. It makes sense, after all, we do have the sweetest peaches. We are also home to the World’s Largest Peach Cobbler. Every June, in Peach County, Georgia, we host the Georgia Peach Festival. Like other festivals, we have vendors, good music, fireworks at night and on the second Saturday of the event-Peach Cobbler.
Not just any cobbler, it measures 11 feet by 5 feet, cooked in a specially made outdoor oven just to bake the cobbler each year. It takes 75 pounds of peaches, 150 pounds of flour, 150 pounds of sugar, 32 gallons of milk and 90 pounds of butter. People come from near and far to sample the cobbler.
At 2:00 pm, the line for a taste will stretch 2-3 blocks. As you can imagine, you can’t use just a serving spoon or standard kitchen bowls to make and serve the cobbler. Five gallon buckets and boat paddles are involved.
The line is worth the wait.
Fresh from the trees, full of sweet flavor and lots of juice. Nothing is better than a Georgia peach, seriously.
Creating a cobbler, takes just a few minutes. peel and slice those peaches, melt your butter, combine the flour and sugar with milk then into your casserole dish and bake.
The peaches sink to the bottom. The butter works its way to the top, creating a crispy crust. Pure magic.
Add a scoop of ice cream for the perfect summer treat.
