Notes

Frozen peaches may be substituted for fresh at the same measurement, just make sure to thaw first. 
A 29 oz can of peaches can be subbed for fresh peaches. Make sure to drain the juice well. You may find that canned peaches make the cobbler a bit gummy. Fresh is preferred with frozen being a close second. 
A 9 X 9 baking dish can also be used for this recipe.

Does peach cobbler need to be refrigerated?

It is best baked right before serving, but it keeps well in the fridge for up to a week. To reheat, just pop it into the microwave for a couple of seconds. To rewarm in the oven, set it out so that it reaches room temperature then bake at 350 degrees until it is hot and bubbly in an oven-safe dish. You may need to cover the baking dish with aluminum foil to prevent the top from browning.

Can you freeze homemade peach cobbler?

Yes, this easy cobbler can be frozen for up to six months. To defrost, put it in the fridge for a couple of hours or defrost it in the microwave.

How do I know when the cobbler is done?

Once the timer goes off, stick a toothpick in the crust, and if it comes out clean, it's done. However, you can leave it in the oven for a few more minutes so the crust can get the desired golden brown color.
