Homemade Peach Cobbler is a delicious dessert filled with yummy peaches with a touch of cinnamon and a sweet biscuit topping.
This cobbler can be made using fresh or frozen peaches which means we can enjoy this peach dessert all year long!
Tasty peach cobbler
You just can't go wrong with peach cobbler. This homemade dessert is great for a casual family dinner or served at a summer barbecue dinner.
I have made this twice in the past two weeks and it has been a huge hit in my house. I think I could make this every day and my kids would be happy!
A cobbler is a fruit dessert that is topped with a biscuit topping. My cobbler has a rustic biscuit topping. When a cobbler bakes all the fruit juices bubble up around the biscuits making a delicious treat.
How is a cobbler different than a crisp?
It's all in the topping. A cobbler and a crisp can both start with the same fruit filling. The difference is what you add on the top. A crisp is usually made with an oatmeal crumble and a cobbler has a biscuit-type topping.
Fresh or frozen peaches?
You can use either. I've used frozen peaches because peaches aren't quite in season here yet. If you are using fresh peaches, peel and slice peaches.
When using frozen peaches, allow the peaches to sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes prior to using. They don't have to fully thaw, but this recipe works best if they are partially softened. Break peach slices apart if they are frozen together.
How do I peel a fresh peach?
- Place whole peaches in a pot of boiling water for 10-20 seconds
- Remove and place in an ice bath
- Use a paring knife and remove the skin
How many peaches do I need?
This recipe calls for 2 pounds of sliced peaches or about 6 cups. If you are using fresh peaches plan on 6-8 peaches, depending on the size of your peaches.
Make the topping
- Place flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a food processor. Pulse until combined
- Add butter. Pulse until mixture has coarse crumbs
- Add milk and pulse until a dough forms
- Drop spoonfuls of dough on top of the filling
Hot or cold?
The choice is yours. I prefer mine warm, but I also think it's delicious served at room temperature.
Can I reheat peach cobbler?
Yes, you can reheat peach cobbler. To reheat a whole cobbler, place the baking dish in a preheated 350-degree oven for about 20 minutes until warmed through. For just reheating a single portion, place the cobbler on a microwave-safe dish. Microwave for 1 minute until heated through.
I like to have my peach cobbler with a scoop of ice cream. My usual choice is vanilla or peach ice cream. My mom often likes to eat her cobbler with just a touch of cream just poured over the top. Of course, you can always eat it plain!
Can I substitute other fruit for the peaches?
