This recipe is, quite simply, the best peach cobbler I have ever eaten - period. It has ruined me for any others. I got it from Allrecipes, submitted by Amy Posey. I will forever be in her debt! I made it once for a neighbor who has a peach tree (in exchange for peaches!), and he said it was just like his Mom used to make. A classic. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. I suppose it could be made with frozen peaches, but for me, it's only worth making at the very peak of peach season. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425. In a large bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar and cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and cornstarch. Toss to coat evenly and pour into a 2 quart baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend in butter with your fingertips or a pastry blender, until mixture resembles course meal. Stir in water until just combined.
  3. Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonfuls of topping over them. Sprinkle the entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon. Bake until topping is golden, about 30 minutes.

Made this today. I had seven smaller peaches, but followed the recipe as written. I have to agree on the oven time. Mine was done at 18 minutes. The next time I will put it on the bottom rack of the oven, being that topping was a bit darker than I liked, but the cobbler was really good.

My husband's request for peach cobbler was so random that I thought he was joking...until he kept asking me to make it. There was always something that trumped me choosing cobbler at dessert time; so, I never even tasted it before...let alone actually make it, either. This recipe was simple, and I liked it! Still, not my favorite dessert, but it did taste great! However, I'm all about simplicity when cooking so I used 2 cans (29 oz each) of peaches, and I used 1/2 cup white sugar in the filling (instead of 1/4 cup white suagr). Everything else I kept the same. Our 11 month old loved it....but he loves everything! I didn't know what taste to expect, but my husband cleaned his plate! So, I guess this deserves 5 stars! If it helps any, the first bite made me think of baked apples and the topping made me think of cinnamon streusels.

This was excellent. I used 7 peaches because that was what I had. I boiled the peaches for 1 minute before peeling which made peeling very easy. The only changes I made were using very hot milk instead of boiling water and adding ginger to the topping and the peach filling. My husband loved it and I couldn't get enough!
Thanks for a great recipe!
