This heavenly gingerbread apple and peach cobbler recipe adds a Christmas twist on one of my most beloved desserts. I figured my go-to peach cobbler recipe could use an update, and gingerbread proved to be more than a just a seasonal twist; it was a delicious enhancement. I’m not sure I’ll be able to return to usual cobbler crusts after tasting this rich and decadent alternative. Seconds inevitably turned into thirds because calories don’t count during Christmastime, right?
I couldn’t decide between peaches or apples for this cobbler so I decided, why not both? And fortunately my indecisiveness was rewarded because this is the most indulgent cobbler I’ve ever tasted. It covers all the bases and if it wasn’t the giving season, I might have kept the whole thing for myself. Whoever is lucky enough to share with you will most certainly be eternally grateful.
Pssst! If you don’t feel like tirelessly peeling and slicing peaches and apples, I promise I won’t tell if you just buy the equivalent in canned pie filling. Simply switch the filling recipe for 3 cans of peach pie filling and 3 cans apple pie filling. Combine the peaches and apples in your baking dish and place in preheated oven for 20 minutes. But if you’re keeping it authentic, the homemade filling directions are listed in the recipe.
