Classic Peach Cobbler #SundaySupper

I wait all summer till the local peaches are ripe, then buy up a bushel to eat plus freeze for later. Who knew Indiana could rival Georgia for the sweetest, juiciest peaches? Buying local means the fruit is picked at the peak of ripeness…making for an ultra juicy, succulent product. I make at least one peach crisp, pie and cobbler each summer. A cobbler is basically pie filling with a tender biscuit topping. I was planning to add a cup of fresh raspberries to this dessert…the peach-raspberry combo is one of my favorites when it comes to summer treats. But I was multi-tasking and totally spaced the berries in the fridge. Feel free to add some berries to this Classic Peach Cobbler…but even without the berries, be prepared for one of the most exquisite tastes of summer. The sweet and tender cobbler topping absorbed some of the peach juices from below and developed an amazing crust on top. Like last week with my Prosciutto and Gorgonzola Strata, I had some spillage over the sides of my baking dish…which provided perfect nibbles for quality control. And this topping passed the taste test with flying colors.

Bill’s family would always have homemade pies for special occasions…raspberry or peach in the summer, pumpkin and apple in the fall. And Bill’s dad would occasionally get his way and have mincemeat…which nobody fought over. Bill was spoiled by his mom and grandmother’s lard crusts…so tender and flaky. But I like taking the easy route…especially in the summer when aiming for an impeccably rolled out crust is  beyond my capabilities. It’s often 90+ degrees with a corresponding double digit humidity. That’s when I go for a cobbler or crisp…easy as pie. No, make that easier than pie. It’s the perfect time of year for this amazing, no frills dessert…and, coincidentally, this week’s Sunday Supper theme is to showcase local farmers’ market finds. Scroll down to find all the marvelous dishes made with local produce from each of our Sunday Supper contributors. But I recommend a cobbler. This recipe is basically foolproof…and Bill was delighted to have his with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Tip of the day: Check the expiration date on your baking powder before using it. There is nothing worse  than putting the time and effort into a dish and finding out your leavening is kaput.

  1. I think the spillage is what makes it look irresistible! Seems the peaches have been extra good this year-enjoy:@)

  2. Count me in for cobbler! Somehow the scents of baking fresh fruit, butter and flour in the oven bring such comfort to a home =) Thank you for sharing this very yummy looking and sounding dessert dish, Liz.

  3. PattiNC says:

    Liz, the cobbler looks delicious!
    I don’t remember ever using 2 cups of milk, I see 1 cup of milk posted twice under the Cobbler Topping, is this new and improved?? You know I’m always ready for new and improved desserts!!

  4. Cobblers and crisps are the easy way out, and people love them! Did the mincemeat include meat, the old fashioned way? I find it a pretty awkward too, would never fight for it either… Peaches are especially good in a cobbler. Those spilled parts are the best ones!

  5. Peach Cobbler… what a fantastic summer dessert. The scoop of ice cream is a perfect accompaniment to the cobbler. Hope you had a great weekend. :)

  6. Your cobbler looks so good, Liz. I have a cobbler recipe very similar, but it doesn’t call for cooking the peaches. I’m going to try it as soon as I can get fresh peaches. You’re a bit ahead of me in the fresh fruit and veg department.

    ps Like Indiana, Michigan grows outstanding peaches. :)

  7. I could eat the whole thing. You have no idea how much I love peach cobbler.

  8. Liz I just love your cobbler! It looks incredible!!! Peaches are the best this time of year! I’m going to go peach picking today before they are gone!

  9. There is just nothing like good ol’ cobbler. I could eat it all myself!

  10. Oh this looks yummy! I love fruity bakes and this cobbler has so much of them! I would love to try too!

  11. This looks insanely good. I think it’s the prettiest peach cobbler, and I’m just about to head out to the farmer’s market, thanks!

  12. It’s been way too long, Liz, but always delighted to see what the Skinny Chick is up to. Gorgeous summer dessert. Peaches love cinnamom and cobbler is a perfect way to celebrate this wonderful seasonal fruit.

  13. Good tip on baking powder – I always buy a new can every year, right around Halloween. And really nice cobbler! I love local peaches too – it’s hard to beat a totally ripe fresh peach for flavor. Great pictures, fun post – thanks.

  14. Oh I just love peaches! This looks like such a fabulous melt-in-your-mouth cobbler, Liz! Love it!

  15. Cobbler. Cobbler. Run that over your tongue. There is something comforting about the word, don’t you think? Cobbler makes me think of warm, sticky fruit and fluffy toppings, served with cold, sweet vanilla ice cream. Your cobbler pushes all the right buttons, Liz. Every single one. Gorgeous!

  16. Never had a cobler topping, tempting to try..
    btw can i replace the milk with cream and should i still cqalled it cobbler topping???

  17. I love peaches! Yummy in my tummy!

  18. I love peach season… come on August!! Up here they’re slow ;-)

  19. This is a great, classic dessert! I already have my freezer stash going to get me through winter too. Cherries and blueberries are in the deep freeze, blackberries, peaches, and plums are next!

  20. Oh my, oh my. Gorgeous! Peach cobbler is one of my top five fav desserts, and you’ve just prompted me to realize that I haven’t had it this season yet. I’ll have to make one before the summer is gone, and now I have a recipe! Thanks.

  21. I lived in Georgia for a bit when I was younger and remember picking peaches all summer long. This looks great. Cannot wait for them to be ready in Connecticut.

  22. This looks and sounds so good, I can almost taste it! I love peaches at this time of year!

  23. Is there any food that fits summer more perfectly than a peach cobbler? Seeing your gorgeous photo made me realize I have to make one, now. Thanks for the inspiration!

  24. I love peach cobbler and prefer it without berries so you can truly taste the sweetness of the peaches. Yours looks so good I can feel myself salivating just looking at it. Nice recipe.

  25. Lizzy,
    This recipe looks pretty easy. If the squirrels don’t eat all our peaches again this year, I might be able to make this from our homegrown peaches. Yours looks great!

  26. I knew Indiana’s peaches could rival Georgia’s!!! ;) Now, I love me some pie, but Imequally love cobblers and crisps, this looks so good, Liz!

  27. Liz, you are making my mouth water. There is nothing better than sitting out on a warm summer night with a hot piece of peach cobbler pie. I keep waiting for the peaches to hit Hong kong. Those peaches must be on a slow shrimp boat!

  28. We are in a bit of a peach kick lately!! Need to try this one… Must be wonderful warm with some ice cream!

  29. It’s the peak season of stone fruits! Your cobbler looks super, Liz.

  30. I adore peach cobbler… but I hate all the peeling! When the kids are a little older, I make them do the work. :-)

  31. Sonoma has a lot peach farms and we enjoy picking them, but I am lost for new recipes. Liz, as usual you have come up with this awesome looking cobbler and you got my attention with that icecream.

  32. The cobbles looks amazingly delicious. I’m normally not a fan of cobbler, but I love pie crust and peach. So refreshing!

  33. Eek, I hope you didn’t put that public service announcement in because you found out your baking powder had expired right before you needed to use it. I hate when that happens! And nothing is more summery to me than dessert made with peaches – it’s my favourite stone fruit to eat. I fail at making pie crust but a cobbler I think I can handle. I can’t wait to try this, Liz!

  34. There’s nothing better than a classic summer cobbler. Beauty!

  35. We are a couple of weeks out on peaches–when they are on I will make this for sure, Yummy. I do love a good biscuit topping.

  36. Can I just say…I love mince meat! It’s a very English thing and very much a Christmas thing and I made some from a very precious in-the-vault-not-to-be-disclosed-special-recipe and put them on my blog and the images were selected for foodgawker but no one looked at them because I think in America there’s the thought that these would have meat in them with dried fruit which isn’t the case and that would be repulsive so no one clicked on my image. But…on Christmas Eve when you’re sitting around the fireplace (unlit in Sydney due to likely extreme heatwave but we ignore summer weather in an effort to be Christmasy), being served a dish of miniature mince pies sprinkled with icing sugar with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on the side while ‘I’m dreaming of a white Christmas’ is belted out of the CD player, I’m sure Bills father would agree, nothing could be better! xx

  37. It has been years since I had peach cobbler, now I am craving it really bad and I promised myself I would give up sugar for a month. Not sure if I am going to make it

  38. Liz, I am waiting for our NY peaches to ripen. In the meantime, I purchased some from our PA neighbors. They were very good. I made a peach custard pie and gave some to my sister in-law to make a peach pie. Love the looks of your cobbler :)

  39. My dear Liz: Your peach cobbler is driving me insane. After seeing your pictures, peach cobbler is the only thing that I am craving. So ” thanks” !!!

  40. I love this pecha cobbler dear Lizzy look amazing!!

  41. I just bought a ton of peaches. This looks so good!

  42. What a gorgeous dessert! I agree – shopping local is best, almost anywhere. And I had no idea Indiana had such great peaches! You’re so lucky!

  43. The peaches are coming! And yes, I believe in quality control, too.

  44. I have to get myself to the farmers market and pick up a large bag of peaches and make your cobbler- I think I’m in love with this dessert…((((I know I’m in love with this dessert ;))))

  45. I just love traditional cobbler – with homemade ice cream – yours looks incredible!!

  46. This brings me back to my youth. Thanks for the visit. :)

  47. Yum.
    I Want! Now. xx

  48. This cobbler looks amazing, Liz. I would love some right now with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. Who knew Indiana peaches could compete with Georgia?!

  49. Oh, yes please. I am addicted to anything with peaches in it.

  50. This is definitely a classic! My stomach started growling the moment I saw your picture, a picture I can’t let Bobby see or he’ll have me in the kitchen making this. I’ve had many, many of these cobblers in my lifetime so I know that there is nothing better! Your pictures of your beautiful cobbler are just mean. :) BTW – I saw an article the other by America’s Test Kitchen and it was calling this recipe a “Texas-style cobbler”. I read through some of the comments and that really pushed some peoples’ buttons. :)

  51. oh oh oh! Peach cobbler is my absolute favorite!! This has got me drooling!

  52. Peach cobbler is one of my favorites! Now you’ve done it. I can’t control the craving any longer. Must go bake!

  53. Oh, boy, I can see that a peach cobbler will need to be on my table pretty soon. Pie “spillage” is my favorite. :)

  54. Peachy, Liz! You make even cobbler look fantastic!

  55. I really enjoy peach cobblers ! I have missed your site but have been busy taking care of mom. Sadly she passed a little over two weeks ago. Hope to slowly cme back to the foodie world.
