*Chef Tips*

  • Fresh peaches are a great alternative, just make sure you peel and separate them correctly before grilling.
  • The recipe allots for extra topping on the pie, this is in case you can’t get enough of that crispy crust, to cook follow the same instructions from Step 8 and 9, then bake uncovered on parchment paper.
  • If you do not own an M-Series Oven, bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Allowing your pie to cool will congeal some of those juices from within the cobbler, which will result in easier serving.
