So I went straight to the source and got her recipe. Well, it turns out she doesn’t really make a cobbler, it’s a crumble. Cobblers, crumbles, and crisps are all a little different. Here’s a little breakdown.
- cobbler- fresh fruit with biscuits on top
- crumble- fresh fruit with an oat-based streusel on top
- crisp- fresh fruit with a streusel on top (no oats)

Back to the matter at hand… I recently saw some beautiful peaches at the store and procured my mother-in-law’s recipe, which I’m sharing with you.
- 3/4 cup of sugar
- 3 Tablespoons of flour
- 3/8 teaspoon of salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 6 cups of sliced peaches
(second set- topping)
- 1 1/2 cups of dry oats
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups of flour
- 3/4 cup of butter
- 3/8 teaspoon of baking soda
- 3/8 teaspoon of baking powder
Combine the first set of ingredients (sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, & peaches) and place into a greased casserole.
Combine the second set of ingredients and spread over the top.
Bake at 375 degrees for 40-50 minutes.
You can also make this using apples. In fact, the original recipe called for apples but I was beguiled by the beautiful peaches.
So, which camp are you in? Cobbler, Crumble, or Crisp?
