The warm peach filling paired with the sugary crust in this peach cobbler recipe is seriously to die for! Serve warm with vanilla ice cream on top. Makes the most perfect summer dessert!
Peach desserts are my absolute favorite to enjoy in the summer time. I especially look forward to a homemade peach cobbler every year. Sometimes I use cake mix to make a peach dump cake instead, but nothing compares to a true cobbler from scratch.
One of my favorite summer desserts to make is homemade peach cobbler. While I love a good strawberry rhubarb crisp in the summer time, you just can’t beat a cobbler. The warm peach filling paired with the sugary crust is seriously to die for! I love to serve mine warm with vanilla ice cream on top. Whipped cream would also be yummy too. :) It is the most perfect summer dessert!
Peaches for cobbler
I like to use fresh yellow peaches for this cobbler. However, you can use frozen or canned peaches for this recipe. With canned peaches, they may be a little mushier because of the extra syrup, but they’ll still taste great. I usually try to drain any extra juices beforehand.
How to make peach cobbler
Add peaches: Place the sliced peaches on the bottom of a greased 9×9″ baking dish.
Make the dough: Cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla and beat just until combined. Then mix in the flour, baking powder and cinnamon if desired.
Scoop dough: I like to use a large cookie scoop (or spoon) to place spoonfuls of the dough on top of the peaches. You can also flatten it out first with your hands. Then gently press down on the dough with your hands, spreading it out to cover most of the peaches.
Bake in oven. Bake at 350°F for about 35 to 45 minutes, or until the crust is lightly golden.
Before serving, let the cobbler rest in the pan for about 10-20 minutes. This allows the juices to set and the crust to harden a bit. Then scoop it out onto a plate or into bowls and add any of the following:
