peach cobbler

Heaven Sent!

Cobbler filling:
4 peeled and sliced fresh peaches (boiling them in water for 30 seconds to remove the skins)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. flour

Cobbler crust:
1 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 tbsp. brown sugar
4 tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 tbsp. brown sugar, for topping
Whipped cream

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Generously butter a 1 1/2-quart shallow baking dish. Place the sliced peaches in the dish and sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and flour. Mix gently and spread evenly again. Bake for 10 minutes. Meanwhile combine all dry ingredients for cobbler crust in a bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or your fingers, to make the texture like coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk and stir to form a soft dough. Remove fruit from oven and drop rounded spoonfuls of dough on top. Sprinkle with last tablespoon of brown sugar and return to oven. Bake until fruit is bubbly and crust topping is golden brown, about 20 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream.


  1. I am interesting in trying this recipe but I was wondering if there is flour in the crust part or just one tablespoon for the peaches.

  2. There is flour in both parts of the cobbler. Thank you for pointing that out. There's 1 c. of flour in the crust and 1 tbsp. of flour in the cobbler. Enjoy! We love this recipe at our house. Let me know how it goes!!!
