Peach Cobbler Recipe

In the summer, my hubby and I love to find fresh peaches from local markets. [You can also use canned peaches for this recipe if you can’t find fresh.]

We love supporting the locals, which is also the best way to eat fresh food. In this case, we hand-picked the peaches that were ripe and ready to go, to make this Wonderful Peach Cobbler Recipe.

Oh, and I might add, it’s delicious served with my mom’s Old Fashioned Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream!

For a refreshing and seasonal dessert, you just can’t go wrong with this Wonderful Peach Cobbler Recipe. Usually when I make this recipe (tried and true, I’ve been making this since 1999), someone always says … what am I tasting that makes this so different and good?

The secret ingredient is almond extract, cooked in with the peaches! Have you ever tried this combo? So smooth and comforting!

How to make Wonderful Peach Cobbler

What is peach cobbler made of?

For this recipe, all you need is typical crust ingredients (flour, sugar, salt, butter, and don’t forget the alnond extract). And then for the peaches–sugar, flour, nutmeg, butter, and more almond extract!

For additional seasonal flair, you can also add fresh berries to this cobbler. They work in a new flavor, and fresh-picked berries can also be an attractive and colorful finishing touch.

How to make buttery cobbler crust

I always love a dessert that may not be all that good for you (this buttery crust? come on!), but when you’re in good company with friends and it’s a special dinner, you can always forgive yourself for the calories.

  1. Place flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor and process for 10 seconds. Add chunks of butter and process until the mixture is coarse. Add water, a few tablespoons at a time, until the dough just comes together.
  2. Remove dough and knead lightly on a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough in half and form into disks. Wrap each disk in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Once dough is chilled, remove from the refrigerator and roll each disk into (2) 8×12 pieces. Set aside while peach filling is cooking. (One will be placed on the first layer of peaches. The other, cut into strips and criss-cross the pieces on the second layer of peaches.)

How do you reheat peach cobbler?

To reheat leftover cobbler, remove the cobbler from the fridge for 30 minutes to bring to room temperature, then warm in a low oven on low heat. Or, you can always reheat individual servings in the microwave on 50% power.

So with genuinely warm hospitality, a sunlit dining room, and a nice bottle of wine, sometimes I just conclude cobbler is a great ending to a perfect meal!

Prep Time30 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour plus more for shaping and rolling
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. almond extract
  • 12 Tbsp. cold unsalted butter cut into small pieces
  • 4 to 6 Tbsp. ice water
  • 6-8 cups fresh peaches peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 3 Tbsp. butter

Instructions

  • Place flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor and process for 10 seconds. Add chunks of butter and process until the mixture is coarse. Add water, a few tablespoons at a time, until the dough just comes together.
  • Remove dough and knead lightly on a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough in half and form into disks. Wrap each disk in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Once dough is chilled, remove from the refrigerator and roll each disk into (2) 8×12 pieces. Set aside while peach filling is cooking. (One will be placed on the first layer of peaches. The other, cut into strips and criss-cross the pieces on the second layer of peaches.)
  • Combine peaches, sugar, flour, and nutmeg in a large saucepan. Let stand for 15 minutes until syrup forms. Bring the peach mixture to a boil; turn to low and cook for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the almond extract and butter. Allow the butter to melt before pouring into a 8×12 prepared (sprayed) pan.
  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.
  • Spoon half the peach mixture into the bottom of an 8×12 sprayed baking dish, using a slotted spoon. Top the peaches with 1 layer of 8×12 rectangular dough. Place on a baking sheet and bake until the crust is light golden brown, for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and top the crust with the remaining peaches, and cover with the other crust, cut into 1-inch wide strips. Return to the oven for 15 more minutes. Let cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting and serving.

  1. The directions are different from the video as the directions say to bake the first layer before putting on the 2nd layer of peaches and strips of dough but the video shows the whole thing put together and then only one bake. Which way is really suppose to be?  Tad confusing.
