Fruit cobbler is the perfect way to celebrate the late summer fruit harvest. This recipe is the one that my grandmother always baked, and I think she learned it from her mother. She always used to make it with canned peaches, or blackberries, but I like fresh peaches myself. The cobbler is cakey and a bit gooey, with a crunch, and is perhaps my most requested recipe. The secret is the melted sugar crust- when it comes out of the oven it is a bit crispy, almost like a brûlé e topping. So delicious!

Step 7: Now, melt the sugar by gently pouring the 1/2 cup of boiling water over the cobbler. Immediately put the dish in the oven and bake it at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Turn it half way through the baking to keep the browning even.
