Fresh Peach Cobbler

When  I walk by the peaches in the grocery store I can't help but smell them.  That is how I know it is time to make cobbler because the peaches are ripe, in season, and they smell delicious!  This is your classic cobbler made from scratch and don't forget the scoop of ice cream!

9-12 fresh ripe peaches (peeled and sliced)
1/2 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.   Stir together peaches, flour, and sugar in a large saucepan.  Bring to a boil over medium heat; reduce heat to low, and simmer10 minutes.  Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.  Spoon mixture into a 8 or 9-inch baking dish.   Prepare crust.

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
11/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons butter (melted)
1 teaspoon sugar

Combine first four ingredients; cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.  Stir in whipping cream and buttermilk just until blended.   Spoon 9 mounds of crust over peaches as in picture above.  Brush with butter and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar.  Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes or until browned and bubbly.  Serve warm with ice cream if desired.  
Serves: 9

* Note- I dotted my peaches with butter like a pie and the filling was too runny.  Use the melted butter on the crust as per instructions.

Believe it or not, this Georgia girl has never made peach cobbler. (I know... that's kind of shameful.) I think this looks delicious and am going to pin it to motivate myself to try.

Hi Sherry. Hope your summer is going well. I love this recipe. Nice old fashioned one. I need to grab some buttermilk and make this as I have ripe peaches in the kitchen.

Michelle said...

Summer is always the best time for peach cobbler. I'm getting ready to make one myself. Your's looks so delicious!

Sarah said...

Oh, how I'd like a bite of this right now. Looks fabulous, Sherry!

Linda Sears said...

yum yum yum! and yes, the ice cream is a MUST!
my family enjoys peach crisp, but we haven't found a cobbler recipe we are thrilled with, but this might just be the one. I'll be trying tomorrow, as I have peaches ready and waiting.

Peach cobbler is one of my favorite things to make and I love trying new versions of it. I'm thinking that cream and buttermilk make this extra special.
