Peach Cobbler Easy Recipe

How are your baking skills? Well, I did a thing the other day. I made my very first peach cobbler! You couldn't tell me anything when that thing came out of the oven! And it was delicious! 

I took the recipe from several sources. I watched a ton of videos and googled my little fingers off until I was sure I could pull it off. 

Funny thing. My mother could whip up a peach cobbler in no time. The recipe was in her head. Hers was lightly sweet and juicy. And the dumplings! This was a thickening dough that floated around in her cobbler that gave it a spectacular consistency. Oh, my God! And there was no pre-made or store bought pie crust. Everything was from scratch.  

Well, my mother was a better woman than I because I knew I wasn't going to be making anything from scratch! Let's be real. Regardless, I was going to give my first peach cobbler my best shot!

Ingredients Needed For Peach Cobbler

So, my final recipe was a blend of several that I had found online. Here's what you'll need to get started:

2 cans of sliced peaches in syrup
2 pre-made pie crusts made of dough
brown sugar
ground cinnamon
ground nutmeg
vanilla extract (I didn't have any)

For step by step details of  how I made my first peach cobbler,  watch my video below:

Baking Instructions

Pre-heat oven at 350 degrees
In a large mixing bowl, add the following and stir well:
2 cans peaches in syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar 

I like a sweet peach cobbler. Use less sugar if you don't have a sweet tooth like me.

To your peach mixture, add the following:
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Stir well

Melt 1 stick of butter in a pan.
Add peach mixture to the pan of melted butter and stir well
Cook on medium heat and allow to thicken.
Add 3-4 tablespoons of cornstarch to help with thickening process

Stir well

Line pyrex pan with pre-made pie crust dough 
Pour in peach mixture

*Optional: Make dime-size dumplings from leftover pie dough and add to peach mixture before covering. You'll thank me for this!

Cover the pan with a pre-made pie dough or cut dough into strips for a more decorative look.  

Brush melted butter over the top of the pie dough to help with browning

Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown


My first peach cobbler was a huge success!
