National Peach Cobbler Day is an annual American celebration of the peach cobbler. It is a great fruit dessert that will be a great decoration for your table. The holiday is celebrated on April 13.
The history of the holiday begins in the 1950s in Georgia. With the help of such a dessert feast, it was decided to increase the number of sales of canned peaches. The idea succeeded, and the peach cobbler became even more popular.
A cobbler is a type of fruit pie. The filling of fruit (in this case, peaches) is placed in a baking dish. It is then poured over the top with liquid batter and baked that way.
Researchers say European colonists brought the dessert to the United States. They loved to make pie with fresh fruit, but the farther west they went, the harder it was to get fresh fruit. Eventually they started making pies with canned foods. Peaches were very popular.
