Once baked, the fruit becomes caramelized, creating a thick, sweet filling, and the pie crust bubbles up for a fluffy topping that’s browned to perfection. Serve with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream for an irresistible dessert!
What Is A Fruit Cobbler?
Simply put, a fruit cobbler is a dessert that is made with various different fruits that have been combined with sugar and (usually) warm spices. The fruit is then layered with a biscuit-like topping and baked until the center is warm and liquidy and the top is crisp and golden brown.
What’s the Difference Between a Cobbler and a Crisp?
Although similar and often used interchangeably, cobblers and crisps are not the same things.
Crisps are desserts that are made with a fruit filling and topped with a combination of oats, flour, butter, and sugar. They also sometimes contain nuts, too. The oat topping completely covers the fruit and bakes into a slightly crispy consistency.
Cobblers on the other hand have a fruit filling as well. Yet, they are layered with a biscuit-like topping that is light and flaky instead of being more crispy and crunchy like that of a crisp.

How to Make This Easy Peach Strawberry Cobbler Recipe
One of the most appealing things about fruit cobbler recipes is how easy they are to make! Just toss everything together, put it in the oven, and you’ll be on your way.
- Preheat your oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
- Add all of the ingredients to a baking dish, and stir to combine.
- Cut the pie crust into squares.
- Layer it evenly over the fruit mixture.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes.
How to Store Peach Strawberry Cobbler
To store leftovers, let them cool completely, place them in an airtight container, and keep them in the fridge for up to 4 days. Or, store them in the freezer for up to 3 months instead.
To reheat, let your cobbler thaw in the fridge overnight. Then, warm it in the oven for about 20 minutes or until it is heated through, and enjoy!
Can I Use Frozen Fruit?
We prefer to stick with fresh peaches and strawberries. Frozen versions will have too much liquid and create a runny cobbler. However, if you’re in a pinch, you can use frozen fruit as long as you let it thaw and drain the extra liquid first!
