Difference between cobbler and crisp?

Fruit cobblers typically are prepared in a deep dish and topped with a cake or biscuit like topping. Crisps have a crunchy, streusel like topping.

Ingredients Needed

Yellow cake mix – Yellow cake is a classic flavor to use but it could be substituted with white cake mix, vanilla cake mix, or even butter pecan cake mix.

Butter – You can use unsalted or unsalted butter for this recipe.

Canned sliced peaches – You will use everything in the can. Do not drain off the juice.

Cinnamon – This is optional but I love the extra spice cinnamon adds to this dessert. You could even add a pinch of nutmeg for extra flavor.

Recipe tips

  • Be sure to spread the peaches in an even layer in the baking dish. Tip: If you are serving to younger kids, try cutting the peaches into smaller pieces before adding to the cake mix. This makes it a little easier to eat.
  • Make sure to slice the butter thin to cover the entire cobbler.
  • If you like a little extra sweetness and crunch, sprinkle a teaspoon of sugar over the top of the butter before baking.
  • If you like a little extra spice, use a butter pecan cake mix instead of yellow cake mix.

How to store

Make sure to let the cobbler cool completely and then place in an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Reheat in the oven or microwave.
