Peach Cobbler

Over the weekend I decided that it had been way too long since the last time I made a peach cobbler, so I pulled out one of my favorite Betty Crocker cookbook recipes and got to work!

  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons butter (softened) 
  • 4 cups sliced peaches (about 6 medium)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut an X into the bottom of each peach and blanch in boiling water until the skin starts to peel. Let the peaches cool before peeling completely and slicing them.

Mix 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon in a pot. Stir in the peaches and lemon juice. Cook stirring constantly until it thickens and boils. Boil and stir for one minute. Pour into ungreased 2 qt. casserole dish and keep the mixture hot in the oven.

Mix butter and flour. Add 1 tablespoon sugar, baking powder, and salt until it resembles fine crumbs.

Add the milk.

Drop dough onto the hot peaches. Bake until golden brown (25-30 minutes).

Enjoy warm!


  1. This looks fabulous. I get the sense it would be delicious with some ice cream melting on top of it! (P.S. that plate is adorable!)

    1. Very true... everything is better with a little ice cream. :)

  2. YUM x infinity! And I had no clue about the blanching and X's to peel peaches. Awesome!

    1. Pretty cool, huh? It works best when they're nice and soft.

  3. Oh yum. Definitely going to be making this soon. Nothing says "southern" like a good peach cobbler! I'm also slightly obsessed with that first picture of the's just so pretty. Thanks for posting! xo

  4. Looks like biscuits to me!! I think I would rather have something that looks a lot more appealing.

    1. Such great input! Feel free to make your own more appealing cobbler!
