What is a peach cobbler?

Cobblers and crisps are a lazy girl’s pie and, in my opinion, are every bit as delicious. Think of cobbler like a strawberry shortcake, except you bake the shortcake directly atop your fruit.You’ll make a peach filling for the bottom layer and top it off with a quick shortcake topping made with butter, flour, sugar, baking powder, and milk that comes together in one bowl with no kitchen tools. Bake that off until the peaches are bubbling and the cobbler is golden brown et voila–peach cobbler!

How to tell if your peaches are ripe

If you’re not a regular peach eater, you might wander over to the produce section of your grocery store and wonder how to tell which peaches are ripe for the eating. Luckily, there are a few different tricks you can use to make sure you’re getting your hands on the freshest, juiciest, most flavorful peaches to bake up into this peach crisp:

  • Smell: This is my favorite way to tell if peaches are ripe. Give your peach a sniff and see if it smells sweet and…well, peachy! If it has that fragrant, peachy aroma it’s probably ripe!
  • Softness: A ripe peach has a little give when you gently poke it. An underripe peach will be pretty firm, and an overripe peach will feel mushy.
  • Color: Ripe peaches are usually an orange-y red color all over. If you see a lot of green or yellow coloring the outside of your peaches they might not be ripe!

Like most fruits, peaches will continue to ripen on your counter, so if you get some under ripe ones at the store give them a few days on the counter and do your tests again to see if they’re ripe enough to bake with!

Our tips for making perfect peach cobbler every time

Peach crisp is one of the easiest, no fuss treats you can whip up this summer. But even simple desserts have secrets to make them delicious every time. Here are all the peach crisp tricks we have up our sleeves:

  • Use ripe, high quality peaches: The quality of your peaches will really shine through in the final product, so make sure you’re getting your hands on fresh, ripe peaches.
  • Don’t overwork the cobbler topping: I know we’ve spent a lot of time talking about the peaches, but the tender, buttery cobbler topping is just as delicious. Cobbler is basically a biscuit or shortcake so you’ll want to make sure not to overwork it so that you can beautiful buttery pockets!
  • Serve it warm and a la mode (obviously): Did you even have peach cobbler if you didn’t eat it hot out of the oven with a fat scoop of vanilla ice cream? I think not. Make sure to grab a pint of ice cream to serve alongside your peach crisp for the ultimate treat.

Ingredients

for the peaches

  • 8 to 9 ripe peaches, pitted
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

for the cobbler topping

  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 7 Tablespoons butter, cold and cut into pieces
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and generously butter a medium sized baking dish (we used an 11 x 7 oval, but a 9 x 9 or a 10 inch skillet would also be great!).
    2. Pit and thinly slice the peaches into half-moon shapes about ¼ inch thick. Place the peaches in your prepared dish and top with brown sugar, flour and vanilla extract. Use your hands or a wooden spoon to toss to combine. Once the peaches are evenly coated, gently spread them back into an even layer. Set aside.
    3. Next, make the cobbler. In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture starts to clump up. It’s okay to still have big chunks of butter throuhout.
    4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the buttermilk and vanilla extract. Stir everything together until it forms a wet biscuit dough. It will be sticky at first, but it will thicken as it sits.
      Use two large spoons to drop the biscuit dough into big clumps over the peaches. Sprinkle sugar over the topping. This will give your topping a golden crunchy finish.
    5. Place in the oven to bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until the peaches are bubbling and the topping is golden brown all over.
    6. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving hot with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
