Nothing says southern cooking like a warm peach cobbler with a scoop vanilla ice cream. If peaches arenít your cup of tea, consider using blackberries or blueberries. You can also mix several types of berries together for a mixed berry cobbler. There are many ways to make fruit cobblers. However, I enjoy this recipe for the easy preparation steps.
For the recipe, use fresh or canned peaches. Usually, fresh peaches are only available about 14-16 weeks out of the year. When peaches arenít in season, you can simply use canned peaches. Some southern cooks will argue that you canít make a peach cobbler without fresh peaches. Others, however, will argue that anytime is a good time for peach cobbler (served with sa scoop of ice cream of course).
