Whether they're in a crumble, a crisp, or a cobbler - we can surely all agree that peaches make a fantastic summer dessert. There's a reason that these peach dessert recipes have been popular in the USA and Europe since the 1800s. There's simply no dish more delicious to finish a summer BBQ! If you're searching for that easy, fresh peach dessert recipe, search no more.

They're all family favorites, so what differentiates a crumble from a crisp or a cobbler? It's a matter that has been hotly debated by dessert-lovers for decades. Essentially cobblers began as pies, using pastry dough on top and bottom, and over the years the adaptation of a crumbly, biscuit-topped dish become just as popular. However, in parts of the South, pastry remains an essential ingredient for a peach cobbler, which is what distinguishes the cobbler from the easy peach crisp or crumble that we know and love today.
That's right - there's no real difference between them! Some people think that oats are essential to a peach crisp recipe, and so that's what makes a crisp different from a crumble; however, you can easily make a peach crisp without oats. These days, the beloved family dish is just: fresh, sweet peaches baked with a crispy, crumbly topping. Now that we know the history, let's get to the important parts: preparing, serving, and eating!
Presentation is paramount, especially with a dish like peach crumble pie that can fall to pieces in the wrong dish. If you're taking your dessert to a summer picnic or BBQ, and we recommend that you do, then why not do so in gorgeously convenient ramekins? Bake them individually and it will save trying to dish out this messy meal at the moment everyone just wants to enjoy it. Your peach crumble pie will hold together and transport perfectly in these cute little dishes! Whether in modern, minimalist white or in all the colors of the rainbow, individual ramekins make every picnic picture-perfect as well as hassle-free. They are the ideal portion size, so you can share your delicious peach crumble pie with the whole family. Just remember to make enough for seconds! It's bound to be popular.
Popular wisdom dictates that a crumble has to be served alongside vanilla ice cream. However, there are other options available for those who don't enjoy ice cream (does such a person exist?) Why not try fresh whipped cream instead? It's easy to take to the park when you're not sure your ice cream will withstand the journey, and it's just as tasty. Cold pouring cream is also a decadent complement for a crumble, and an even more indulgent option is to eat your peach cobbler with cheesecake topping on the side.
This is a timeless recipe you are sure to enjoy! Happy Baking!
