OMG! This was incredible! I've never made fresh peach cobbler before and it was so easy. I've never even attempted to slice fresh peaches before either. I boiled them for 1 minute, let cool a minute, then the skin came right off. I took a knife and scored the peach all around into 7-9 sections from top to bottom and used my thumbs to pry the slices away from the pit. It worked out well and didn't bruise the peaches at all and they were pretty ripe. I added a shake of cinnamon over the peaches and to the batter. I used 8 small peaches from our local peach farm in SC and cooked in a glass 9x13. I ended up pouring the batter over the peaches (it was not runny batter) and using a spoon to spread it out over the peaches instead of dropping spoonfuls of batter on top. Spreading was the way to go. I took it to a BBQ and everyone loved it!

I thought you should know that I made 2 of these for my husband's great-grandmother's 98th birthday party. She always complained about how awful was the food in her retirement home, especially the peach cobbler. She had peach trees on her farm and made fresh peach cobbler and missed it so much. So I made 2 cobblers for her & the rest of the family in attendance, about 30 of us in total. As a result, I am the official peach cobbler maker for the family. They unanimously declared it the best peach cobbler they have ever eaten. Great-grandma passed away about 2 weeks later, but I like to think we gave her a grand send-off! Thanks so much for the fantastic recipe.

Best peach cobbler I've ever had! Made it for a friend and he wanted to take the whole thing home! Used 1/2 brown sugar and half white to make it even richer. Used butter instead of margarine. Added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

I followed this recipe exactly... so what am I missing?! In retrospect, I would not use a 9x13 pan, this made for a very thin cobbler. I also would add at least one more peach. My peaches were ripe, and I think this made for a very sweet cobbler. I think for ripe peaches I'd cut the sugar some and/or add a little lemon juice to balance things out. I also added a little cinnamon and nutmeg.

this is delish! in most recipes, usually cut any sugar amounts in half. for this i cut down the sugar in the dough to 1/2 c. and for the water/sugar mixture i used only 1/3 c. i thought it was still plenty sweet and may cut it back next time to 1/2 c. and 1/4 c. we love vanilla, so i increased it to 1 tsp. PEFRECT! thanks for sharing.

I made this using half Granny Smith apples and half peaches, I also added in 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, I used half brown sugar and half white sugar. This really should be called "Perfect" Peach Cobbler, it IS the perfect recipe! This will go into my favorites and I look forward to making this again soon, thanks for sharing countrywife!...Kitten:)

This recipe is very good. I did make several adjustments. I made the recipe in a 8x8 pan. This batch can fit in a 8x8 pan and it could still use more peaches. The flavor was great, but more peaches (I would double it) would make it better. I used half of the sugar and water mixture and that was enough. It was very sweet the way I made it. Very good, I would make this again when I have more peaches.

Chef yummy yum yum! January 12, 2012

Well, let me start out by saying my boys love peach cobbler. I have never liked it and I'm on a diet, so figured this was a safe dessert for me to make that wouldn't 'tempt' me. Of course, I had to try a spoonful just to test it out. Well, I made the 2 boys one serving each. They loved it. I ATE THE REST! Oh my goodness! This was delicious. And I used canned peaches. I know it would've been better with fresh, but WOWWW! I followed Kittencal's advice and used 1/2 brown sugar and added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of nutmeg.

Soooo good! I had a lot of fresh peaches, so I doubled the recipe (still used a 13x9 pan). I used real butter instead of margarine and used half brown sugar and half white sugar for the portion of sugar the goes into the batter. It's like a crustless peach pie. We enjoyed this warm with some vanilla ice cream. Thanx!

I'd like to give three and a half, but since that isn't an option...The dough is fine, although not very flavorful, but cobbler dough isn't usually. I added cinnamon as a personal preference. The simple syrup over the top of the dough is just a little too much. I would likely halve it next time. I used fresh peaches which produced juices of their own, so I think even with half the syrup, it would be sufficient.
