Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe

Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe

It’s hard to express our love of casual, homespun desserts. This peach cobbler recipe is a new favorite with it’s spiced peach filling and sweet biscuit top.

Cobblers, crisps and the like are perfect made in the summer when trees and bushes are brimming with sweet summer fruits. They are equally as impressive during the winter months when frozen fruits can brighten heavier meals and darker nights.

Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe with Spiced Peaches

This peach cobbler recipe is extraordinarily simple. Fresh (or frozen and thawed) sliced peaches are tossed with tart lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and a little flour to help thicken. You could also add a cup of berries — raspberries, blackberries or blueberries would be lovely.

The peaches are given a head-start in the oven while we make a sweet biscuit topping. The topping is equally simple. Cold butter is cut into a mixture of flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Then, milk is added to form a soft dough.

You could pat the dough down and use biscuit cutters to form perfectly round biscuits, but we like the cobbler to look as casual as possible. Instead, we simply dot dollops of dough over the, now warmed, peaches.

To finish things off, we sprinkle a little cinnamon-sugar over the biscuits before baking, adding a sweet crunch to the tops of the biscuits.

We probably shouldn’t need to mention that cobblers, especially this one, take kindly to scoops of ice cream, whipped or simply poured cream. If you can find some, try cinnamon ice cream.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Spiced juicy peaches topped with a sweet biscuit topping. Peaches are the star here. The topping will not cover all the peaches. Instead it floats on top, between the peaches and their thickened juices. (If you prefer the top to be completely covered, simply double the topping recipe below). We do take the time to peel the peaches for this -- we prefer it this way. If you're short on time, skip it. The cobbler will still taste great.
Created By:
Yield: 6 servings
You Will Need
Spiced Peach Filling
  • 2 to 3 pounds (900 to 1350g) ripe peaches, peeled and sliced, or 2 pounds thawed, frozen sliced peaches (5 cups sliced peaches)
  • 1 cup fresh or thawed frozen berries, such as raspberries, blackberries or blueberries (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup (65 to 100 g ) sugar, depending on sweetness of peaches
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (we use Gold Medal unbleached all-purpose flour)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Biscuit Topping
  • 3/4 cups (105 g) all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold, cut into small cubes
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) milk (whole or 2% reduced fat milk are best)
Cinnamon-Sugar Topping
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Directions
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F (190 C). Lightly butter or oil a 9-inch (23 cm) square baking dish (or 2-quart dish).
Prepare Peach Filling
  1. Toss sliced peaches with berries (optional), lemon juice, sugar, 2 tablespoons of flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and the salt. Pour into baking dish. Prebake for 10 minutes.Peach-Cobbler-Recipe-Step-1
Prepare Biscuit Topping
  1. Whisk flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar, baking powder and the salt together. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, cut butter into flour until crumbly. Pour in milk. Stir with a fork until a soft dough forms. Dot tablespoon-sized dollops of biscuit dough over prebaked peaches, leaving some space in between each dollop. (As the cobbler bakes, the topping will spread out a little).
  2. Combine sugar and cinnamon for topping. Sprinkle over biscuit dollops.Peach-Cobbler-Recipe-Step-2
Bake
  1. Bake cobbler 40 to 50 minutes or until juices are bubbling and topping is golden brown. Cool 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

    I just used your recipe and I would like to thank you and your husband for your contribution to the world! It was absolutely delicious, I impressed my in-laws, my family, and the house smells amazing. I have a peach tree, so I have enough to make your vanilla peach muffins for breakfast! I can’t wait to try other recipes from you guys.

    The weather’s too hot here (Northern California) for cooking these days in the 80’s and 90’s, but I sure do enjoy watching your videos. Great lessons for learning. Keep the salt down and sugar down for good health! Very best wishes to you hard-working, generous people!

    When following the recipe, for the peach filling it says 1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar; however, when preparing the filling, the directions say 2 tbsp sugar. Could you please clarify this? Thanks!

      Hi there — So sorry about that. We flipped the measurements. The recipe is fixed now, but to clarify, 1/3 to 1/2 cup of sugar is added to the peaches and an additional 2 tablespoons are added to the topping.
