The Difference Between Cobblers And Crisps

Truthfully, cobbler and crisp are pretty similar, but the difference comes down to the ingredients and the texture.

Crisps have more of a crumbly texture and are normally made with brown sugar and oats, while cobbler has a cakey or biscuity topping. Both crisps and cobblers are buttery and sweet, but have wildly different textures.

Cobblers were originally not created with prettiness in mind, but they’re still incredibly mouth-watering.

How To Prepare Peaches For Cobbler

To peel or not to peel? That is the question! But honestly, there is no right answer. It’s all down to personal preference.

Some can’t abide the peel and would rather remove it, while others are not bothered by the peel, and some people would rather not take the time needed to remove them. 

However, if you do want to peel your peaches, let’s take a look at how you can do this effectively. First, boil the peaches for a few minutes, then add them to an ice bath, and all that’s left to do is peel them!

But now you might be wondering, how do you slice peaches? Slicing peaches into thin wedges allows you to easily lay them on top of each other for a more even cobbler and a jammy, thick consistency.

Cubing peaches is also an option, but peach wedges usually have a better look and texture.
