Delicious southern, soul food style peach cobbler made with canned peaches.
(Originally Titled Rosie’s Peach Cobbler!)
When I first started uploading soul food recipes online, peach cobbler was one of my most requested recipes. Everyone wanted to know how I made my cobbler. Some wanted to know if I used bisquick. Others wanted to know if I topped my cobbler with a crisp. But the biggest mystery was whether If I use fresh, frozen, or canned peaches for my cobbler.
So what do I use? I actually do it all. However, my FAVORITE Peach Cobbler Recipe will probably always be my original recipe that I uploaded back in 2011 ( I know I say they’re all my favorite, but this one is truly my FAV!!). Back then I called it ” Rosie’s Peach Cobbler”, and referred to it as my busy mom peach cobbler because it is quick and easy to make.
For this soulful peach cobbler I use store bought pie dough, and canned peaches in heavy syrup. This cobbler has dumplings throughout the filling, and there is plenty of cobbler juice( just like soul food peach cobbler should have). I use cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger to spice up the cobbler. However, if you’re not a fan of ginger, you can leave it out.
