    • Hi Stacy,
      Yes, you can leave it out if you don’t have any. It will still taste good, just not have that slight cinnamon flavor. 🙂 I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Can I make this ahead of time and freeze it before baking then thaw and bake onsite at our cabin? I am using frozen blueberries that have been slightly sugared before freezing instead of peaches.

    • Hi Patti,
      I have never tried preparing the cobbler, then freezing the entire thing, to bake and eat. My thought is that it might not rise as well as normal, but you could give it a try! I might suggest baking it directly from frozen, then increase your baking time, usually by 50% is the suggested rule of thumb when baking the food from frozen. Using blueberries sounds delicious!

    • Hi Arlene,
      This recipe is for an 8×8 pan. If you would like to use a 9×13 pan, then you will want to double the recipe 🙂 I hope this helps!
