National Peach Cobbler Day - April 13


National Peach Cobbler Day is observed annually on April 13.  It recognizes a delicious dessert that originated during the 19th century.

Unable to make traditional suet puddings due to lack of suitable ingredients and cooking equipment, the settlers instead covered a stewed filling with a layer of uncooked plain biscuits or dumplings, fitted together.  When the dish is fully cooked, the surface looks like a cobbled street.  The name may also derive from the fact that the ingredients are “cobbled” together. Some recipes resemble a thick crusted, deep-dish pie with both top and bottom crust.
