Old Fashioned peach cobbler takes us way back in the day in the South, when the pie dough was rolling on the table nearly daily in the summer to keep up with the abundance of fruit.

I’m now convinced there are as many ways to make cobblers as there are biscuits or shrimp and grits. Everyone has their own special recipe. I have several, but double crusted  Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler just might be my favorite way to eat cobbler. I’ve made cobbler in jars,  and in cast iron skillets, some with pie dough, some more cake like.

It doesn’t matter which version you like; it only matters that it’s second helping good, and a double crust will make happy the person who loves pie crust  or the person who loves fruit  Both stand alone and then converge together.

The Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler Process

This is truly a genius method, one that would also work well with a cast iron pan if you really want to go rustic. You simply put half of the fruit in first, then cover with a slab of pie dough, bake for twenty minutes and then add the rest of the fruit and a lattice top. It’s the queen of summer comfort food, only aided by the addition of ice cream. Notice my lattice strips are not perfect, but the pie dough recipe is. That I do guarantee, after hundreds of times having my hands in pie dough, this works and you can get all my  tips for pie dough perfection here.

  2. Angela, perhaps your method will keep the inner crusts from being soggy which is why I shy away from cobblers…the top crust is always nice and crispy brown and then inside…uncooked dough! I will try this as I like the idea of halfway baking the inner dough. Pretty as a picture this post is.

  3. Oh Angela, you’ve outdone yourself! This is gorgeous. Cobblers to me are always peach, I use berries and such for other things. I love the image of days when pie crusts were constantly in production!

  4. I bought two bags of peaches at a local farm this morning. One for eating and one a bag of very ripe and/or cosmetically imperfect “seconds” for baking. I was thinking peach pie – until this recipe hit my inbox!

    I never heard of double crusted cobbler before. Does it give the feel of pie – only easier to make? Trying to understand the rational of the crust in the middle – I’m a northerner and don’t get it, lol!

    Hope is well! xoxo

    1. Hi Maria
      I’m a Northerner transplanted to the South It took me a while to “get it” here too.

      Her’s the advantage. No need to be perfect. The cobbler is scooped out with lots of good crust. Usually with peach pie the bottom gets gooey, but this way it’s great.
      People love it. I used to think cobbler was just cake type, until I moved here and brought a big pie with a lattice crust to a family reunion and everyone called it cobbler.
      Good luck. I”m sure it will be great.

  5. You want to hear something funny. I’m standing in my kitchen and I started thinking about you, wondering how you were and I come to my computer and you left a comment. Now that’s amazing!
    Hope you’re having a great summer.
