My First Cobbler

Today, while jamming to The Temptations, I made my first southern peach cobbler. It tastes just like the cobbler I used to get at the Country Kitchen restaurant in my small hometown, i.e. it's delicious! So simple to make, this will definitely be a recipe I make again, over and over. And next time I'll try to be more patient and wait for my peaches to fully ripen.

Peach and Cinnamon Cobbler
originally found here

6 cups peaches, pitted and sliced
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup tapioca (I used Ambrosia canned tapioca)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
Pinch salt

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour, plus additional for dusting
3 1/2 TBSP sugar
1 1/2 TBSP baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
6 TBSP cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
2/3 cup heavy cream, plus additional for brushing

Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C. Butter a deep 2 1/2 quart baking dish. In a medium bowl stir together the filling ingredients. Pour filling into prepared baking dish.

In a large bowl, prepare the topping. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter and mix with your fingers until it resembles coarse crumbs. Slowly pour in the cream and stir until dough just comes together. On a lightly floured surface, pat the dough together. Form 2-inch balls and flatten them slightly.

Evenly arrange the dough rounds on top of the filling. Brush lightly with cream. Bake ~40 minutes or until golden brown and filling is bubbling.

  1. Wow this looks amazing and not too hard, thanks for sharing! Also, your food photographs are amazing.

    1. Thanks Katie! I was really surprised by how easy it was too. I might switch it up next time and use berries. :-)

  2. Yum! My husband is a HUGE cobbler/pie fan. I'll have to make this for VDay for him.

  3. This is making me crave sweets. Looks amazing! I can't wait until the day when we can hang out in each other's kitchens...

    1. That'll be a lot of fun! You'll have to teach me some of your canning ways.

  4. Are peaches in season over there? That looks yummy! I think I've only actually had cobbler once or twice. We'll have to wait for peaches to be in season here to try this recipe. Usually we just eat them as it is, or make baked peaches.

  5. this looks delicious! yum! thanks for sharing.

  6. I thought I left a comment, but I guess not. Wordpress to blogger commenting hasn't been working well for me. =\ Anyway, I think I was going to say that I have never made this before, and are peaches in season over there? Once it comes into season here, I will have to try this recipe. Sounds yummy!

    1. So strange, I remember reading that comment via e-mail and when I came to respond it wasn't here. :-/ Thanks for commenting again though! I suppose peaches aren't in season at the moment, but I was able to find some that were pretty tasty (and for cheap). To be honest, when I made this they weren't 100% ripe yet, but I was so eager to make the recipe. I had left overs though and they were so good a couple days later. haha

  7. Oh yummy! It's time I pull out my last jar of canned peaches and attempt this cobbler! Looks so so tasty that I know my husband would gobble it up in one sitting!
    Thanks for sharing your recipe! :)

    1. I tried the recipe with canned peaches and it was delicious!! Totally recommend that.
