Perhaps the truth depends on a walk around the lake. ~Wallace Stevens

This peach cobbler is everything you dream about in a cobbler, crispy golden biscuit crust atop juicy warm, bubbling peaches.  If you are a peach lover, make sure to make this dessert at least once before peach season ends. Your future self will thank you. 😉

It really couldn’t be any simpler and the flavors just shine here. Not to mention the texture of the biscuits- perfection!

Serve the warm Peach Cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (or my new favorite- Cardamom Ice cream-coming soon) and prepare to melt in the deliciousness. Such a treat!

Ingredients in Peach Cobbler

Biscuit Dough

  • All-purpose flour
  •  salt
  •  baking powder
  • Sugar
  • cold butter or sub-vegan butter
  •  half and half or plant-based substitute

Peach Filling

Can this be made vegan?

Yes, absolutely. Substitute vegan butter or cold coconut oil for the butter and plant-based milk or cream.

How to make Peach Cobbler

Preheat oven to 375F

Make the peach filling. Rub the peaches with a soft towel to remove the peach fuzz and wash. Cut into ¾-inch chunks and place in a bowl and add sugar, lemon juice, vanilla, arrowroot, cinnamon, cardamom and a pinch of salt, stir to combine. Pour this into a 1 ½ quart to 2-quart baking dish (a 9-inch pie plate is perfect).

peach cobbler topping

Cut cold butter into thin slices and add it to the flour mixture and using two knives or a pastry cutter, cut the flour into the flour, then use your fingers to mix it in and break it apart until the flour resembles coarse sand, and the butter pieces are no bigger than pea-size.

Pour in the half and half, stirring as you go to incorporate the flour mixture.

Add just enough until it clumps together, and give it just a couple of kneads. If very sticky, sprinkle with a little more flour. If dry, another few tablespoons half and half. Don’t overmix.

With floured hands, divide the dough into six balls. Pat the balls into disks no thicker than a ½-inch thick. Place these over the peach mixture.

***TIP: The center will take longer to cook than the edges, so pat this center biscuit thinner, like ⅓-inch thick or even ¼ inch thick. Otherwise, the center may be doughy. (Don’t worry, it will still puff up with the baking powder.)

assemble the peach cobbler

Bake in the middle of the oven,  for 35 minutes-45 minutes or longer. The cobbler is done when liquid is bubbling, biscuits are golden, and the internal temp of the biscuits are close to 200F. Use a thermometer!

NOTE: Keep in mind, that the biscuit topping cooks underneath from the bubbling cobbler. Even if it looks “done” on top, if the liquid is not bubbling, the biscuits will be raw.

With ice cream of course! Vanilla ice cream is perfect here, or if you can get your hands on Cardamom ice cream, even better! There are many vegan ice creams out there too!

Some people love their cobbler drizzled with heavy cream or whipping cream- also delicious!

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Make the peach filling. Rub the peaches with a soft towel to remove the peach fuzz and wash. Cut into ¾-inch chunks and place in a bowl and add sugar, lemon juice, vanilla, arrowroot, cinnamon, cardamom and a pinch of salt, stir to combine. Pour this into a 1 ½ quart to 2 quart baking dish (a 9-inch pie plate is perfect).

  1. Hi Sylvia! I absolutely love your recipes and use them regularly. Did the printing format recently change? I loved that your recipes were formatted to fit on one or 2 pages, but that option seems to have recently disappeared.

    1. Hi Taylor- Yes, I’ve been hearing this and will have someone hopefully fix this after the weekend.

  2. Our anniversary arrived and we were feeling quiet and like spending the evening at home. I made this lovely cobbler as a simple celebration and it was perfect.
    Another wonderful recipe!
    Thanks Sylvia

    1. Congratulations Sherry! That is a long time. Glad you liked the cobbler, and it could be a part of your sweet evening.
