Fresh peaches are one of the classic tastes of summer. They are so delicious, sweet and juicy and perfect for eating straight from the farmer’s market or turning into something delicious… like this peach cobbler!
There are a ton of ways to create a peach cobbler, super simple ones like a peach dump cake, or ones like this with a more cake/biscuit like topping. This kind does have a few extra steps but to me it is worth it for the made from scratch flavor and texture that it creates!
Even though this peach cobbler is made with fresh peaches and a from scratch topping there are a couple of short cuts you can take if you’re pressed for time!
Use Frozen Peaches-
If you don’t feel like peeling and slicing peaches then you can use frozen peaches! Just let them thaw completely before making your cobbler. You also may want to check and see if there is sugar added to your frozen peaches. If there is you can cut down the brown sugar from 1/4 cup to 2-3 Tbsp so that your cobbler doesn’t end up overly sweet!
Use Bisquick for the Topping-
Another easy swap is to use Bisquick (or another similar baking mix) in place of the dry ingredients in the topping. Instead of using flour, baking powder and salt just use 2 cups of Bisquick. You’ll still need to add the sugars butter and water but it makes it a bit easier!
Before we get to the recipe I wanted to share another tip that is going to save you time & sanity. You might already know this but just in case I wanted to share with you …
How to Easily Peel Peaches-
Peeling peaches can be tedious, but there is an easy way to get the skin to come right off.
Get a pot of water boiling on the stove and fill a large bowl with ice water. I like to lay out some paper towels or a dish towel next to my ice bowl too.
Once the water is boiling drop 2-3 peaches in and let them boil for about 20 seconds.
Using a slotted spoon scoop them out and put them in the bowl of ice water until they are cool to the touch. Then you can take them out and place them on your paper towels or a cutting board.
Repeat until all of your peaches are done.
Using a pairing knife remove the skins, they should come off quickly and easily!
This cobbler is delicious by itself, but you can add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream!

8 Cups of peeled & sliced Peaches (about 7-8 peaches)
1 tsp Lemon Juice
1/4- Cup Sugar
1/4- Cup Brown Sugar
1/4- tsp Cinnamon

Place your peaches, lemon juice, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla all in your pan and stir well.
Now pop your pan in the oven for 10 minutes.
While your filling is baking you can get your topping made.
In a large bowl combine your flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, baking powder and salt, mix it all together.
Now add in your butter and use a pastry blender or cut in the butter until it forms a crumbly mixture.
Now mix in your hot water and stir until a soft dough forms.
Remove your peaches from the oven.
Spoon your topping mixture evenly over top of the peaches and gently spread it out.
Now sprinkle your 3 tablespoons of sugar across the top.
