The cobbler looks like a crumble. It is the same way of a dessert with the fruits below the dough above. But that’s the only resemblance. The difference is in the composition of the dough that contains yeast and swells up when it’s cooked. It’s more like cookie dough. This recipe is from Jamie Oliver’s America book. Jamie Oliver notes about this recipe:
Even if this recipe is easy, the result is extraordinary! The combination of hot and juicy peaches cooking in their own syrup with the crunchy-crousti “cobbler” dumplings is incredible. You can make this recipe in advance, then bring it back to life by warming it in the oven (adding a little water in the dish to not dry it out). Serve hot, with a little melting vanilla ice cream on top.
