It’s that time of year when you have left over peaches from the summer. What do you do with 3 pounds of peaches that no one will eat because they are getting “old”?!?
This Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler has the perfect sweet biscuit crust on top. People go crazy after this old fashioned, from scratch recipe and you will too!
Yield: Serves about 8
- 3 pounds fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced
- 1 lemon, zested and juiced
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup white sugar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ cup cold salted butter, cubed
- 1 cup half and half
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 pan with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a medium-size mixing bowl, toss peach slices with lemon zest and juice, cornstarch, vanilla, and white sugar. Spread them out in the 9×13 pan.
- In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, powdered sugar, baking powder, and salt. Use a pastry cutter to cut in butter until it resembles a course meal, or pulse the whole thing together in a food processor.
- Pour in half and half and stir to form a thick batter.
- Scoop the batter in large clumps on top of the berries to form a nice cobbler crust.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Serve warm or cooled.
