Peach Cobbler Ingredients


For the Filling:
– 6 large peaches, ripe and juicy
– 1/2 cup granulated sugar
– 1 tablespoon lemon juice
– 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
– 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the Biscuit Topping:
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and diced
– 1/2 cup milk

Peach Cobbler Cooking Instructions


1. Let’s dive into the heart of this recipe—the peaches. The yearning for Peach Cobbler often came from the trees standing tall in my grandfather’s backyard. Those vibrant peaches, kissed by the sun, were a gift from nature itself. Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Peel the peaches and remove the pit, then slice them into thick wedges. It’s alright to embrace the natural imperfection of the slices — they give the cobbler a rustic charm. Place the peach slices in a large bowl.

3. Add the granulated sugar, lemon juice, all-purpose flour, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon to the bowl of peaches. Gently toss until the peaches are coated evenly with this sweet and spicy concoction. Allow the mixture to sit for about 10 minutes, letting the flavors mingle and the juices from the peaches create a luscious syrup.

4. While the peaches are marinating, let’s prepare the biscuit topping. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well, ensuring all ingredients are fully incorporated.

5. To achieve a buttery and flaky texture in the biscuit topping, add the cold, diced unsalted butter to the bowl. Use your fingertips or a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

6. Now, pour in the milk and stir gently until the dough forms. Be mindful not to overmix—it’s okay to have a few lumps. Think of it as the charm of homemade baking.

7. It’s time to assemble the cobbler! Transfer the peach filling into a baking dish, making sure to include all the delicious juices. Spread it evenly to create a bed for the buttery biscuit topping.

8. Carefully dollop spoonfuls of the biscuit dough on top of the peach filling. The dough will expand during baking and envelop the peaches in its golden embrace.

9. Slide the baking dish into the preheated oven and let it bake for approximately 30-35 minutes. Keep an eye on the cobbler, and when the topping turns a delightful golden brown and the peach filling simmers gently, it’s ready to come out!

10. Allow the Peach Cobbler to cool slightly before serving, allowing the flavors to intensify. But honestly, I understand the temptation to dive in when it’s still warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting on top.

Variations and Tips:

– Experiment with the fruit: Don’t limit yourself to peaches—try using other seasonal fruits like plums, berries, or even a combination of your favorites.
– Add a crunchy twist: Sprinkle a mixture of oats, brown sugar, and chopped nuts over the biscuit topping before baking for a delightful crunch.
– Play with spices: Customize the flavor profile by adding a pinch of nutmeg, ginger, or cardamom to the peach filling for an extra aromatic touch.


As I take my first bite of this divine Peach Cobbler, memories flood my mind of summers spent with family, laughter cascading through the air, and the comforting warmth of this delicious dessert. The tender peaches bathed in their zesty syrup, embraced by the fluffy, golden biscuit topping, are an embodiment of pure bliss. May this recipe bring you joy, and may every spoonful transport you to a place where the taste of summer lingers all year round.
