Inspired by and adapted from Chrissy Teigen’s Hungry for More, this peach cobbler is simply the best! The dough for the cobbler is somewhere between a biscuit and a sugar cookie, making it downright craveable!
This recipe fits in a 2-liter baking dish, or double and bake in a 13×9.
My only changes to the recipe were to use brown instead of granulated sugar in the fruit, and to add a bit of vanilla to the cookie dough.
Prep Time:30 mins
Cook Time:45 mins
Total Time:1 hr, 15 min
Yield:6 servings 1x
For the Fruit:
6 Medium-Large fresh peaches, sliced into about 12 wedges each
2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
1 Tbsp. Cornstarch
1/4 cup packed Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
For the Cobbler:
1 c All-Purpose Flour
1/2 c Granulated Sugar, plus a bit more for sprinkling
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. Kosher Salt
1 Lg Egg, beaten
5 Tbsp. Butter, nicely softened but not melted (see Note)
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Prepare the Fruit:
Preheat oven to 350F (Conventional) or 335F(Convection/Fan). Butter a 2-liter dish.
Into a bowl, place peach slices, lemon juice, cornstarch, brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix well and place in buttered dish.
Prepare the Cobbler Dough:
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the egg, soft butter and vanilla. Stir with a spoon until incorporated and the mixture forms a dough. Place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes, and put peaches in the oven for the same 15 minutes.
After taking the peaches out of the oven, drop chilled dough in large clumps (2 Tbsp size) over the fruit filling. The dough won’t cover the fruit completely. If desired, sprinkle some extra sugar (Turbinado or regular sugar is fine) over the top of the dough. Place the baking dish atop a cookie sheet or sheetpan to catch any drips.
Bake cobbler 25-35 minutes until golden brown on top, and bubbling around the sides. I took mine out at 30 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
1. Be sure butter is soft all the way through, just not melted. This will keep the dough the best texture. If it’s a warm day, just set it out in the morning for at least an hour. If it’s not nice and soft, then microwave on 50% power (or defrost) in 15-second increments until it is soft.
