Grandmother’s Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler makes the perfect, Southern dessert. This heirloom recipe makes the best peach cobbler that has always been a staple in my family for generations.

Summers always mean cobblers around our house. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I think fresh peach cobbler probably gets the vote most often when I ask which cobbler my family would like for dessert.

Being from Georgia, we just can’t wait for fresh peaches to reach their peak so we can enjoy Grandmother’s peach cobbler recipe. Their heady scent completely envelopes you as you walk into the grocery store, the farmer’s market, or even up to the back of the farmer’s pickup truck alongside the road.

The peaches you find on the back of that farmer’s pickup truck are some of the best, ya know. They are usually full, soft, and just bursting with juice as you bite into them. Perfect for any number of peach dishes or just for eating right then and there on the side of the road.

I remember stopping by with my Grandmother as she’d buy baskets and baskets of peaches during the summer. Along with making peach preserves and any number of other peach dishes, she’d always make a fresh peach cobbler for supper. A lattice-topped, double crust sensation filled with rich and buttery peaches.

Southern comfort dessert at its finest.

You’ll start with the freshest peaches you can find. However, if you have a craving for peach cobbler when peaches aren’t in season, you can always use frozen or canned peaches instead.  You’ll just want to be sure that you drain them from any syrup they may have been packaged in since you’ll be making the filling for this peach cobbler based on Grandmother’s time tested recipe. Otherwise, they might be too sweet.

For fresh peaches, you want to peel and slice them and place into a large saucepan.

Add your sugar to the peaches in your saucepan.

And then you’ll add a little flour to thicken up the syrup with the peaches as you cook them.

You’ll simmer the peaches over low to medium heat for about 10 minutes.

Set them aside and allow them to cool slightly as you prep your pie crusts. For the pie crusts, I use my favorite pie crust recipe. I double it to make two crusts as this is a lattice topped recipe. If at all possible, don’t skip out and just have one crust on your peach cobbler. The perfect peach cobbler, at least in my family, has the perfect portion of peaches to pie crust in every single bite. And one of the best parts of this whole peach cobbler is that the syrup bubbles a bit as it cooks and makes the top lattice crust out of this world! Seriously. You don’t want to miss that part!

Dot with your remaining butter and sprinkle with sugar.

Place into the oven and bake for about 20 minutes until bubbly and the crust has lightly browned.

Allow to sit for about 5 minutes before serving.

Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream to take it really over the top!

    I cannot wait to make this…it’s one of my Granny’s dishes that I miss SO much. All of her cobblers were double-crust and I just haven’t been able to find a recipe that turns out close too hers. I’ll let you know my results! Thanks so much for sharing :-D

    I would like to book a room at the Casa de Robyn please. You always have the yummiest food! What I wouldn’t give to have fresh peaches here in Guam. Do you think frozen would be adequate?

    • 17

      LOL! Come on! I’ve not tried this recipe with frozen peaches, but would love to hear how it turns out for you. I have another peach cobbler recipe that canned peaches works well with that I’ll post soon for you.

    Now, Robyn, you *know* I love this post! Being a fellow Georgia girl and all. Nothing says summer in Georgia like peach cobbler. Yum!

    I do love some peach cobbler. Just put up about 27 cups of the wonderful fruit and I believe some of it will end up in the cobbler!

      Oh my goodness! That’s my plan for this weekend. I can’t wait! Love fresh peaches.

  12. 21

    This is beautiful to look at and is there much better to eat for dessert than peach cobbler? You’ve done a marvelous job!

    If you are diabetic or watching your sugar intake I found that you can substitute the sugar with Splenda.
