Authentic Texas Style Peach Cobbler: Delicious Seasonal Dessert Goodness

By  | 

Cobblers are based on seasonal fruits, are simple to make, and rely more on the fresh ingredients as opposed to an intricate pastry preparation for their great taste. Today we have great fruity inventions and conglomerations that are even entered into county fair contests, however, the originals were a far cry from what we presently see. Thank goodness for Authentic Texas Style Peach Cobbler.

Great at improvising, early American settlers made do with a fire to cook on, local ingredients to make a stewed fruit of sorts, and enough provisions to make a batter or biscuit dough to cover the sweet goodness with. Some recipe varieties have been passed down with both a bottom and top crust, however, most were made in Dutch ovens over an open fire with only the top to seal in the juices.

With many varieties of fruit for use in a cobbler, peach still tends to be the classic. Their delectable flavor, the spring and summer reminders they give us at a simple whiff of their aroma, and their incredibly sweet juice make for a powerfully preferred dessert temptation. Here, from Ranchseeker, is one of the tastiest recipes we’ve seen yet, featured on the menu at one of the many dude and guest ranches they feature.
