Peach Week: Smackdown, Pie vs. Cobbler

Before I get to the pie vs. cobbler, I want to say the perfect proportions for peach iced tea are: half peach nectar, half tea. Others may have different opinions.


There was a difference of opinion on whether to make peach pie or peach cobbler. Pie won out with 3 votes, since we had already made cobbler. It's not our fault Ernest has a social life and missed out on the cobbler. So pie it was.

However, Frank was heavily involved in a video game so Ernest volunteered to make the crust. When Frank started to roll it out, he thought it was too sticky but I shushed him up right away because it was nice of Ernest to help when he didn't even vote for pie.

Sticky didn't really seem to be a problem because look at this lovely crust...


The hugest bowl of peaches seemed to shrink when I mixed them with sugar, cornstarch, and a little cinnamon and nutmeg.


Crimping, crimping.



And done!


Now in a taste-off between pie and cobbler, it would be a draw. They are both equally delicious. I promised Ernest we would do cobbler next.

After my peach honey mustard chicken glaze, of course.

I totally would have voted for cobbler, or crumble as they call it here. I'm a big crust fan and maintain that the fruit is there solely to flavor whatever crust ity happens to touch. Lovely job to you and your family!
