Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between a cobbler and a crisp?Basically, it is the topping that makes the difference. Both are a deep dish baked fruit dessert with the cobbler sporting a topping of a thick biscuit, pie crust or, in this case, a cake mix. The crisp is adorned with a lighter, crispy crunchy topping usually made with oats.Is it necessary to peel my peaches before adding to this cobbler?No, it is really up to you. When using frozen, you will add as is but, if using fresh, you can opt to leave the skin on or off. The skin will soften as it bakes and tastes just as delicious as the peach flesh.If I want to remove the skin, if there an easy way?Absolutely! Just boil water in a large pot and gently lower the peaches into the boiling water. Let them sit for about 1 minute then remove to a bowl of ice water for 1-2 minutes. At this point, you should be able to pinch the skin lightly and it will pull right off.How do I know if the cobbler is done?The topping will be a golden brown and no longer bubbling. With this cake mix variety, just insert a toothpick in the center and, if it comes out clean, it is done.
