National Peach Cobbler Day

Date When Celebrated : Always April 13

You may not have known it when you awoke this morning, but today is National Peach Cobbler Day. How sweet it is!

Peaches are one of America's favorite fruits. When you put it into a cobbler recipe, you've got a treat, of which people will be asking for seconds.

Peach Cobbler is a deep dish fruit pie, made with peaches and biscuit (or it's equivalent). While it is best to served hot, it is still delicious consumed cold, too.

Back in the 1800's, American settlers travelling to the west, did not have the ingredients to make a then popular suet pudding. They used peaches and dough to cobble together this tasty fruit pie.

For the record! The largest Peach Cobbler ever made, was baked at the Georgia Peach Festival in 2007. It measured 11' X 5' and 8" deep.


Origin of "National Peach Cobbler Day":

Peach Cobbler Day was created by the Georgia Peach Council in the 1950's, to promote the consumption of canned peaches. Canned peaches can be enjoyed any month of the year. This helps to answer the placement of this special day in April, when fresh peaches are not available.

This is referred to as a "National" day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.
