Classic Peach Cobbler

Cobbler gets its name from its biscuit topping -- which resembles cobblestones. It's a tried-and-true fan favorite, and perfect as a potluck dessert or weeknight treat. Here's how to make peach cobbler using our classic peach cobbler recipe.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 5 cups unsweetened peach slices
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Vanilla ice cream (optional)

Step 1: Make the Topping

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium bowl stir together flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; set aside.  


Step 2: Make the Filling

In a large saucepan combine 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup water, and cornstarch. Stir in peaches. Cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly. Keep filling hot over low heat. 

Step 3: Assemble Cobbler

In a small bowl stir together egg and milk. Add egg mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Transfer hot filling to a 2-quart square baking dish. Using a spoon, immediately drop flour mixture into six mounds on top of filling. 

Step 4: Bake

Bake peach cobbler in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until topping is golden brown. If desired, serve warm with ice cream. Makes 6 servings.
