Tips To Make The Best Peach Blueberry Cobbler

  • Cut your peaches into even slices.  This guarantees even heating throughout the dish.  Unevenly sliced peaches can result in smaller slices being overcooked and larger ones undercooked.
  • If you are using unsweetened fruit, sweeten your fruit with a tablespoon or two of sugar.
  • If you don’t have a 9 inch square pan, you can use a 9 inch round pan or an 8 inch square or round pan.
  • Make sure you use cornstarch, as stated in the recipe.  Not using it could result in a soupy cobbler.

Is It Better To Use Fresh Or Canned Peaches For Cobbler?

While using fresh peaches for a peach cobbler recipe or this peach blueberry cobbler recipe is always ideal, most of the year we don’t have the luxury of using fresh peaches.  In this case we need to resort to using frozen or canned peaches. 

Some bakers say using canned peaches in cobbler can result in a sickly sweet cobbler and they deplore using canned peaches in their cobblers.  However, other bakers recognize there are reasons for using canned peaches in cobbler and are all for it. 

According to this article by Taste Of Home, you can use canned peaches for most baked recipes.  However, canned peaches are cooked, so they’ll be softer and more tender compared to a fresh or even frozen peach.

Notes

If you don’t have a 9 inch square pan, a 9 inch round pan will work or you can use an 8 inch square or round pan.
Because peaches were not in season when I made I used canned peaches.  This was 1 full 14.5 oz can and 2/3’s of another 14.5 oz can.
I used canned peaches, so I increased my cornstarch to 1.5 – 2 Tbsp cornstarch.
Fresh fruit is best, but frozen and canned fruit work well also.  
The butter in the crust needs to be soft, not melted.  It needs to be softer than room temperature.
