Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler © 2008

With my mom in town, we pulled this together during a quiet Friday afternoon, while the kids were at school.  I had forgotten how delicious and simple it was and we found ourselves making it a second time this weekend!  I discovered this one at All Recipes, and with over 1300 reviews you know it has to be a winner.


  • 8 fresh peaches - peeled, pitted and sliced into thin wedges
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice (pfft! I used it from the bottle)
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces (I used salted, it was fine)
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar (topping)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (topping)


Preheat oven to 425*

  1. In a large bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Toss to coat evenly, and pour into a 2 quart baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in butter with your fingertips, or a pastry blender, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in water until just combined.
  3. Remove peaches from oven, and drop spoonsful of topping over them.
  4. In a small bowl, combine last 3 Tablespoons of sugar with the 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon and sprinkle entire cobbler with the mixture. Bake until topping is golden, about 30 minutes.

Hey there--just found your blog, great stuff. I always love finding places where real moms review recipes that real families eat. :-)

I'd love to join your recipe-sharing gals. I'm an at-home mom to two kids under three and do the cooking for/with my family at least once a day (usually 2-3 times). It's always fun to try new recipes and what better place to find/share them than a blog!
