For the Peaches:

  • 6 cups fresh sliced peaches
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Cobbler Batter:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter (cold)
  • 1 1/4 cups milk

Sugar Topping:

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tablespoons hot water


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 2 quart baking dish or 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium low heat, combine the peaches and sugar. Cook and stir gently until gently boiling.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and water, mixing well. Drizzle this into the peaches and mix. Stir until thickened.
  • Add the butter, cinnamon and vanilla. Mix well. Remove from heat and pour into the prepared pan.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • Cut in the cold butter using a pastry blender.
  • Add in the milk and mix just until combined. Do not over mix!
  • Drop the batter onto the peaches by spoonfuls.
  • Sprinkle the 1/4 cup sugar overtop the batter.
  • Use a spray bottle to spray water on the sugar or drizzle the hot water all over the sugar.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the cobbler batter is baked through and the peaches are bubbling. The cobbler will be very lightly browned.
  • Serve warm with ice cream.
  • Store covered in the refrigerator.
