This week’s recipe from Johnnna’s Kitchen is Peach Cobbler! An American deep-dish fruit dessert or pie with a thick crust (usually a biscuit crust) and peach filling, here’s a few fun facts about it that you may not know:
Peach Cobbler Day was created by the Georgia Peach Council in the 1950s to sell canned peaches.
The rough look of the pie gives the dish its name. It looks “cobbled” together.
Peach cobbler was invented by early American settlers.
