My great grandma and some of my great aunts all from southern Illinois used to make cobbler with fresh peaches and pie crust. Unfortunately they're all dead and I can't ask em how. Most of the recipes out there are for biscuit dough. Is the Betty Crocker recipe for cobbler with pie crust as good as I'm gonna find?

I've made some non-Betty Crocker recipes, but I love the Betty Crocker ones the best. I really like the texture of the pie crust, and the fruit mixture doesn't come out super-liquidy like some of the others I've tried.

I suggest making a few different pies and seeing which you like the best. It is so unfortunate to have to eat so many pies.

Cobbler is usually fruit cooked with a crust or crumbles on top. Pie has crust underneath.

I've made cobbler using bisquick on top (thinned like pancake batter) and cobblers using granola type crumbles on top. I had a peach cobbler made with a crushed up bran flakes, cinnamon, and butter mixture on top. Not bad at all.

Work on whichever direction you like best....and keep making it until you pop get it like you want it.

Here's Betty's recipe.

http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/triple-crust-peach-cobbler/ad75b453-ad32-49d1-9303-5f536986cc80

This is more or less how several women from different families made it around the Carbondale/Herrin area when I was a kid. It was way better than peach cobbler in N.H. where I grew up, they used canned peaches and freakin cake!

Not bad for a guy who really doesn't bake.

This is the simplist, quickest, most reliable way to do it. I've done it countless times through the years. This year I started using 1/2 cup of milk instead of one cup. It seems to help get a good brown crust.

I've been using Paula Dean's recipe, and it is damn tasty.

I­ngredients

  • 4 cups peeled, sliced peaches
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • Ground cinnamon, optional

D­irections

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Put the butter in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt.

Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon, if using. Batter will rise to top during baking. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes.
