(CNN/KLTV) - Wednesday is National Peach Cobbler Day.

The dessert is believed to have originated in the 19th century.

It consists of fruit filling with a thick crust, usually made from biscuit dough.  

Peach Cobbler Day was created in the 1950s by the Georgia Peach Council to promote the sale of canned peaches, according to Foodimentary.com.

The rough look of the pie gives it its name - it looks “cobbled” together.

Here is an easy and delicious peach cobbler recipe to help you celebrate the day, even if you are short on time.
