Easy Peach Cobbler

I sure do like peach cobbler.  It’s something my husband says often as a hint that I should make it.  Patience. Getting great peaches and allowing them to ripen is the key.  The peaches tend to be green when we buy them.  Allowing them to sit for a few days helps make this easy peach cobbler.

If you do not have fresh peaches, you can use canned, just just about 1/3 of the juice from the can.  And get the can that is in it’s own juices.  You will be adding enough sugar to this recipe.

Serve with a scoop of ice cream and you’ve got peaches and cream!

You can serve dinner and have the cobbler cooking in the oven while you are eating.  A great dish we like to eat warm (or warmed up). And don’t forget to try our cherry cobbler recipe too!

Do You Need to Use Fresh Fruit?

You can use fresh peaches or canned.  If we don’t have enough, we use a combination of both fresh and canned so that the baking pan is covered.

Can You Use Frozen Peaches?

Yes.  You will want to thaw and drain the peach as the excess liquid could take longer to cook or become soupy  Draining excess juice is key.

Save The Peach Juice!

Save the juice and you can drink or or mix it with a little sugar and reduce into a syrup and use on your ice cream.

Do You Have to Peel Peaches For This Recipe?

The peaches should be washed and the pits removed.  If you want to leave the skin on, you can, but you should slice the peaches.  It will allow quicker baking of the peaches.

Do You Use Need a Glass Baking Dish?

This is our preference, but if you have metal, those work as well.  Cooking time may be slightly different, so check your cobbler near the end of baking time.

You can use fresh or canned peaches.
If you use frozen peaches, they will take longer to bake and will more than likely have more liquid, so you may want to add a little more cornstarch or allow the peaches to thaw and strain.

Tips For Making Cobbler

  • If you don’t have fresh peaches, you can use canned (in own juice or light syrup)
  • The butter for the topping does not have to be hard, it can be soft.  It will be easier to mix
  • Make early in the morning as the oven temp is pretty high
  • Allow the cobbler to cool and set before eating
  • Use the same bowl for the peaches and then the dry mix (rinse and wipe down), less dishes
