Peach Cobbler Vs Peach Pie

After reading many recipes while searching for a recipe for a peach cobbler, I was thoroughly confused on the difference between a cobbler and a pie. I saw a recipe I liked which was a double crust cobbler. It wasn’t until after I put my cobbler in the oven that I decided to search for an answer. Well the answer is; a cobbler does not have a bottom crust. So I actually made a pie. No matter what it’s called it taste delicious.
