Cobbler is a glorious dessert. It has the sweet fruity chewy crispiness of a pie while taking about half the effort, meaning they're quick and easy enough to get you out of that hot kitchen quickly. Maybe that's why they're so popular in the summer, or maybe it's because they go perfectly with a cool refreshing scoop of ice cream. Either way, we're more than ready for cobbler season, and with these 12 easy recipes, you will be too.
When it comes to cobbler, peaches are king, and it's no mystery why—full of juiciness and flavor, peaches have just the right taste and consistency for this dessert genre that's half crunchy-chewy butteriness and half melt-in-your-mouth sweetness.

This strawberry cobbler is absurdly easy, and just requires fresh strawberries, butter, sugar, flour, and milk. It takes just 30 minutes in the oven to turn these ingredients into a gorgeous red cobbler that goes perfectly with vanilla or chocolate ice cream.
Pecan cobbler is a bit of an outlier, but we already know pecan pie is great, so it's no wonder that pecan cobbler is too! This is a great way to enjoy cobbler outside of the summer months as well, since it's perfect for Fall. Speaking of Fall cobblers, we also love this Pumpkin Pecan Cobbler from Lauren's Latest.
