- Use canned peach pie filling :Don’t have time to whip up your own peach pie filling? Canned will work just as well, although it definitely won't taste as fresh!
- Use canned biscuits - If you’re in a pinch and need to be quick, slice up canned biscuits as your topping. It tastes delicious and nobody will know the difference.
- My peach cobbler is runny - If it’s runny, then the filling was too runny before you began. Be sure your filling is nice and thick so it sets up appropriately before you start the baking process.
- Don’t overfill the dish - We don't recommend doubling this recipe/using a smaller dish because it can easily bubble over!
