Can I use frozen peaches instead of fresh ones?

Yes, you can, but the end result will probably be a bit runny due to the extra moisture the peaches have once thawed. To compensate for this, double the amount of cornstarch in the recipe. Allow the peaches to thaw at room temperature for about 30 minutes before using them in a recipe.

Can I use canned peaches?

This recipe calls for fresh peaches. You can also use canned peaches. For best results, buy peaches canned in light syrup or no syrup at all. Syrup will provide extra sugar to the recipe. You can rinse the canned peaches off the syrup for better results. If you want to use homemade canned peaches, the same rules apply: If you canned peaches in syrup, just rinse off the syrup for best results, then continue with the recipe.

Does the cobbler have a bottom case?

Cobblers traditionally do not have bottom shells, although some families do. In general, cobblers with bottom and top shells are more of a pie. The bottom of the cobbler is the fruit of your choice. Topped with delicious dough, baked to perfection to surprise the cobbler!

What is the difference between cobbler and crisp?

Cobblers are topped with a batter, while shortbread is topped with a crumbly mixture, usually consisting of flour, cereal (such as oatmeal), butter, sugar, and sometimes nuts.

How can you tell if a peach is ripe?

You can tell if a peach is ripe and juicy by three main signs. 1. The yellow color of the peaches should be a deep golden color. The more golden the peaches look, the better. 2. Grab the peach and squeeze gently. If you give it a little but you’re not giving much, then the peach isn’t ready to eat. You want the peaches to be very soft when squeezed. 3. It sounds weird, but you want to look for wrinkles by steaming through the peaches. Wrinkles mean the moisture has evaporated from the peaches, leaving a more intense peach flavor.
