Peach, peach with berries, or mixed berries, but I pretty much love most cobblers. Topped with vanilla bean ice cream.

Peach is hands down my favorite, but there really is no such thing as a bad cobbler.

Mother used to make the most delicious strawberry cobbler

To go with this topic because it is a regional thing do you prefer a crust topping or some other type. Not really a crumb topping but one of the tastiest was made of ground nuts, pecans and another type, dark brown sugar, was told flour and bourbon enough to hold it together on top of both apples and canned peaches. Butter was layered on top of the fruit. Today people would use regular peaches but in the 1950-1960s people used canned fruit and veggies more than they do today.

Another difference do you want a top and bottom crust or only a top one? Makes me want some.

I haven't had it often, maybe a handful of times. I'm not sure how popular it is in my area.

I've had peach a few times - I didn't really like it, peach is not one of my favorite fruits. I'm also not that fond of berries. I'll eat either but don't look for opportunities to do so.

So I'll say apple, I recall I liked one I had once with a crumb top that was similar to dutch apple pie. But I can take it or leave it.

I like clafoutis better. Traditionally made with cherries but plums work well too.

Apricot. Sweet top crust only. Warm from the oven. But my next favorites would be peach or blackberry. Or whatever kind is on offer from a good cook!

I'm not much of a cobbler person. But if I had a choice it would be peach.

Peach or Blackberry. I can't choose. It's just too gosh darn difficult! I am a huge cobbler fan. Great question!

Blackberry or peach, if it's made with the right kind of peaches (I don't like canned cling peaches).

And to me, if it's '2 crusted', with pie pastry type crust, it's not cobbler, it's pie. Cobbler has a top crust only, usually more of a biscuit or almost cake-like type crust.

So I've always been just a bit confused as to exactly what a true cobbler is, the definition seems to vary widely by recipe and location.

I recently made a very tasty apricot cobbler

Fruit in the bottom and a sweet cake like on the top.

I used to make blueberry cobbler and also peach, as we grew both of these fruits. They were delicious. I don't eat sweets anymore, but I asked my daughter-in-law for her recipe for strawberry-rhubarb cobbler yesterday. I'll make it for guests sometime in the future. We grow both of these fruits too.

Elmer, if you have one of those small plum trees around you, the kind that are more like large cherries than plums, those make the best clafoutis.

Peach or cherry.

I make mine like my mother did, just spoonfuls of gooey pastry dough (in other words, not rolled out like a crust) dolloped on top before being put into the oven.

Martha Scott Now that's what I call tried and true cobbler crust!


How many layers of crust? I love a middle!

Interesting other than refrigerator pies I have never seen one with a middle crust. If regular pie dough I would think it would become gummy as it baked. However if you used a American biscuit type dough it would become like a raised dumpling.

Also a middle, and it does not get crusty. There is the 3 crust cobbler as well, but takes a lot longer to prepare. Must be our Southern thing. All restaurants in my area have the two crust. Yummy!

double crusted cobbler

No biscuit dough cobbler for me!

If you did not grow up in the South with multi crust cobbler you missed it :o)

I love cobbler of any kind and make it often. I dislike most piecrusts so I prefer cobbler to pies :-) When the wild blackberries are in season, that would be my first choice. But peaches rank high as well - plain peach or peach with blueberries or raspberries. And I prefer mine with whipped cream rather than ice cream.

Apparently having a bottom crust is a Southern thing. Soggy batter or pastry is not my cup of tea so not a technique I would follow.

Apples or rhubarb I prefer to have fixed as a crisp, so no pastry or dumplings as a topping.

To me there's also something appealing about the "rusticness" of cobblers, crisps, buckles, etc. I also put crostatas/galettes in that same category...and fun to make.

My sister-in-law's mother in Kentucky always made the double crust cobbler. It was so, so good. I had never seen a recipe for it until Glenda posted the link above. And the directions for baking it are exactly like the woman in Kentucky always made hers. I was fascinated the first time I was with her and she made her cobbler. My mom always used a top crust only. I absolutely love the double crust method.

Oh, and blackberry is my favorite. My grandmother used to maker blackberry cobbler and served it with fresh, thick cream. I made myself sick eating so much of it one time when I was about 8 years old. And the blackberries she used were ones she had canned herself. She was an excellent cook.

So, rather than edit my post, I will add that I only prefer fresh fruit cobblers, never canned fruit. And I make then like my mother did. She would put one small crust on top, cook until the top was brown and crusty and then cut it into the filling and place another crust on top and let it bake. So essentially a 2-crust cobbler with crust in the cobbler and on top too without any crust being undercooked or gooey. None of us liked gooey pie crust.

I've never heard of the two crust cobbler, with crust in the middle. When Glenda said two crust, I thought she meant crust on top and on the bottom, which is why I thought that would be a pie.

Hmmmmmmm. . . . . . Something new to try next fall, when (if) the weather cools off.

"Elmer, if you have one of those small plum trees around you, the kind that are more like large cherries than plums, those make the best clafoutis."

Alas, no. We used to have a few plum trees but they lasted about 15 years and weren't replaced. We're picky about fruit for clafoutis, buying small amounts of what's in the stores (in the olden days) and going back for more when we find a batch of cherries, plums, or pluots suitably firm and sweet.

Most of the two crust cobblers I have had the bottom crust was cooked, cooled slightly, then the filling and top crust added. I did not make them so not certain how long the bottom crust was cooked the first time. Some makers do something that I consider cheating and that is to make the filling as a pudding, fruit, cornstarch or flour, sugar, and fruit cooked until starting to thicken then pour into the baked bottom crust and add the top crust.

Blackberry and peach are my favorites. I would love to have a cherry cobbler made with sour cherries. Cherry pie filling is just too sweet for me.
