Pies and Cobblers are always a big hit with my husband and at our family gatherings or church potlucks. This Fresh Peach Cobbler recipe is especially easy to make.

Colorado Peaches

I like to use fresh peaches when in season, and my favorites are from Colorado, but they can be hard to find at our local grocery stores. You know the secret to buying fresh peaches, right? Smell it. And if it doesn’t smell like a peach, pass on by.

Some of my favorite memories include driving through Colorado on late summer vacations and stopping at fresh fruit markets on the side of the road. Fresh peaches. Fresh Cantaloupe. Newly Harvested Garlic. Onions. Hot Peppers. Oh my!

Ingredients Needed to Make Fresh Peach Cobbler

  • Fresh Peaches (cling free is my preferred type and you’ll need enough to do 4 cups)
  • brown sugar
  • cornstarch
  • freshly grated nutmeg
  • water
  • lemon juice
  • butter

For the Topping:

  • all-purpose flour
  • granulated sugar
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • butter
  • large egg
  • whole milk
  • sugar for garnishing

Instructions on Making Cobbler

Cutting Peaches

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Using a pairing knife, peel and slice your peaches. Place in a large bowl.

In a medium saucepan, combine brown sugar, cornstarch, and freshly grated nutmeg. Add water to mixture and cook till sauce thickens. Add lemon juice and butter to the sauce, then pour over the peaches. Gently stir to combine.

To prepare your topping, in a medium bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry fork, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Create a hole in the center and add the egg and milk. Whisk together with a fork and then blend in with the flour mixture until moist.

Assembling the Peach Cobbler

We’re going for a “cobbled stone” look for this recipe, where the juices bubble up between the mounds of dough.

Pour hot fruit mixture into a greased baking dish. Spoon biscuit topping over fruit by small mounds. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake in preheated oven for 30-40 minutes until topping is cooked through.
