Peaches and mangoes are wonderful and bright with natural, juicy sweetness, unmatched by many. This cobbler is a little more figure friendly in that there is only one crust as opposed to the traditional two. Ginger makes a notable appearance in this recipe for a natural spiciness and the luxury of being one of the super spices and high in antioxidants. This is what I like to call a 'lazy cobbler' in that the effort is minimal with a store bought, roll out crust and the reward is great!!
