Cast Iron Peach Cobbler
Early settlers of America were very good at improvising. When they first arrived, they brought their favorite recipes with them, such as English steamed puddings. Not finding their favorite ingredients, they used whatever was available. That's how a lot of traditional American dishes came about with such unusual names. Early colonist were so fond of these juicy dishes that they often served them as the main course, for breakfast, or even as a first course. It was not until the late 19th century that they became primarily desserts.
Cobblers are made of just about any kind of fruit or pudding and is often served over a biscuit crust. They are also known to some as Crisps or Crumbles, Betty or Brown Betty, Grunts or Slumps, Buckle or Crumble, Pandowdy, Bird's Nest Pudding, and Sonker.Submitted by: TRAVISTOLER
