Tasty?Love this recipe but eventually made a few changes. Only use half of the butter and half of the sugar. Still tastes delicious !! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Turned out badly because of this instruction, "Pour the peaches over the batter." Do the opposite of that: pour the BATTER over your peaches, and you will have a cobbler. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent, and so easy to make! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This may be "peach dessert" but it is absolutely not cobbler. I was encouraged by the good reviews but no one in my family liked this at all. The crust part has a gummy disgusting consistency. We picked out the peaches and ate them with ice cream and threw the rest out. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very easy to make. I used 9 fresh peaches & did not have to cook them. Just laid they on top of batter. Only next time I will cut back the sugar, use frozen peaches to save time on peeling & cutting. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Definitely easy, and I made it even easier by not pre-cooking the peaches. They were ripe Fredericksburg TX peaches, the best! Left skins on, cut into big chunks, tossed with sugar and lemon juice, and put them straight on the batter. Came out perfect, not mushy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used canned peaches and added only 1 cup of sugar into the batter. I drained most of the syrup from the can leaving a small amount of the syrup behind with the peaches as I poured it over the batter. Yummo! It was divine! Next time I will add a little vanilla. SO DELICIOUS and SO EASY-1-2-3! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This one did not turn out as I expect a cobbler to be. It reminded me of peach pie filling. It tasted quite good but I wouldn't describe it as authentic peach cobbler. item not reviewed by moderator and published
im not peach cobber fan but it was good, especially with vanilla ice cream. my cousin loved it though have 2 make her one quite often, id recommend this recipe 2 anyone quick & easy.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
You could jazz this up with vanilla or additional cinnamon but truly it's great as is. Just be sure to use ripe peaches, otherwise let them stew a bit longer to soften. This tastes just like my 1970s childhood peach cobbler (except I used fresh peaches rather than tinned! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was excellent. I was skeptical as to how it would turn out as the recipe was so simple. I decided to try it anyway as the reviews were so good and prolific. I will definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was delicious! It was so easy to make. I cut the recipe in half and used a smaller round dish and it still turned out great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe lives up to its name, so EASY! I did have a "Lucy-type overflow" while cooking. My pan was smaller than 9 x 13, so I will be sure to use a generously sized pan next time, and there WILL be a next time. We had some peaches from our trees that were not very sweet, so I did use all the sugar as directed in recipe. I liked the way the topping baked up crunchy. I don't know if that's how it was supposed to be, but I liked it all the same. Using 4 cups of peaches worked. When I cooked up the peaches as directed in pot, there was a lot of liquid; so I poured peaches and liquid as is into baking pan hoping it was ok. As it cooked, the water bubbled down into a nice syrupy goo. No cornstarch needed to thicken it. Yum. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Its was very good and easy to make. I do think it could have used more peaches though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy and delicious! I used frozen peaches I had saved to make pies with.. I froze them peeled and sliced with a 1/4 cup of sugar, so they were juicy on thawing. I added 1.5 cups sugar instead of two and 1 tablespoon of corn starch mixed with a little water to thicken. It was a big hit served with ice cream. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thought I'd already posted, to discover I didn't. Used this recipe 3X now! It will not disappoint! 1st time "Easy Peach Cobbler" fr. Dori Sanders, 6/23/2013 3:00pm: Cobbler in oven as I type! Pealig and cutting was most time consuming part, and it didn't take long. Used 10 peaches. I have a 9X13. Followed all measurements. Sprinkled nutmeg & cinnamon on top right before going in oven. My oven runs 3 degrees too hot. 40 mins.@ 375 (378 seems to work. Looks good, but not perfect. A few peaches were not quite rip,and I can see which slices are more lite yellow. Hope it taste good...Cooling...Fantastic! Took small test bit Great. No worries about the couple not so ripe ones. I think it balances the flavor. I WILL make this again. Easy, great family dessert. Picturing holidays & guests & smell of cobbler! Oh yes, and if canned peaches work, potlucks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just finished baking this cobbler and I must say...OMG! One of the best cobbler recipes I've ever tried! Made a few alterations to the recipe because I realized halfway through that I didn't have the lemon juice. Lol. I did use more peaches than called for, but once they cooked down, it was needed. When cooking the peaches, I used 3 tbsp of water instead of lemon juice and 1 tbsp of corn starch to thicken up the syrup. I also let them boil for 3 or 4 minutes to get the peaches nice and soft. The way you basically "layer" the ingredients in the pan makes for the crispiest crust around the edges when it comes out of the oven! So delicious! I will definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love it! Family ate it all and said it was the best they ever had. I too cut the sugar as our local peaches are very sweet on their own. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband of 28 years has never ever had peach cobler this good. I did cut the sugar in the peaches as they were already very sweet. item not reviewed by moderator and published
What a terrific recipe. I made the cobbler exactly as written along with throwing in a handful of freshly picked blueberries. Served with a scope of vanilla ice cream. I could have eaten the entire cobbler in one sitting. It's so good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My mother was not a great cook. However, this was one of her favorite recipes. I have searched for it for years. It's now my go-to for pot lucks. I enhance it a bit depending upon the occasion: Grand Marnier or Countreau and some orange zest with the peaches and pumpkin pie spice. I also add a slurry of a bit of cornstarch with the juice to make sure it's really thick. I've also added dried cherries (reconstituted in juice or liquer. I also add maple syrup to the peaches and a bit of vanilla. For the crust, I also add a bit of pumpkin pie spice. About ten minutes before it's done, I sprinkle sanding sugar/crystalized sugar on the top it makes a beautiful presentation and great crunch. I use more peaches and less sugar, too. I served this as favor at a luncheon. I measured the crust and then the peaches in 1/2 pint mason jars. Put the lids on right out of the oven and they self-seal. Thank you for the fond memories of my mom. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used 12 peaches and was barely enough. Not a deep dish peach cobbler but will try it in a smaller pan next time. I cut back on the sugar used for cooking the peaches by about 1/2 and was delicious. The peaches were naturally very sweet so I did not need a full cup of sugar. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow. This was fantastic! I made this a bit healthier by switching out the AP flower for whole wheat flour. I also switched the milk for almond milk. I also used more peaches than it called for. My husband and I both loved this and will make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was such a tasty and easy recipe. The peaches I used were less ripe than I thought was ideal, so I used almost the full cup of sugar called for with the fruit and like previous reviewers I added 2 more cups of peaches. I added another pinch of salt to the dough mixture to counteract the sweetness and the result was delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Some reviewers say they used half the amount of sugar and this was perfect for them. I enjoy a good sweet peach cobbler so I followed the recipe using the full 2 cups and found that amount of sugar just right for my sweet tooth. Many reviewers claim not enough peaches and they are absolutely right! The recipe calls for 4 cups of fresh sliced peaches (about 6 medium peaches and that was not nearly enough peaches in my opinion as they shrink down as they cook. I would recommend 6 cups of peaches minimum to 8 cups of peaches for peach lovers like myself. I will double up to 8 cups of fresh sliced peaches next time ; . I sprinkled some cinnamon on the top before cooking. I would cut the cooking time down to 30 to 35 minutes instead of the suggested 40 to 45 minutes as it was a little past golden brown at the 40 minute mark in my oven. #1 suggestion, add more peaches. Yummy! : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good but I used can peaches and doubled the recipe and it turn out delicious, it's halfway gone already!! Great with ice cream: item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was tasty, but I modified this recipe and I'm happy I did. To the peach mix I used brown sugar, added vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brandy. I usually use bourbon to bake, but I was out. For the future I'd add more peaches and less butter. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious and easy to make, everyone wanted seconds, top with vanilla ice cream and you have a first class dessert! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Very much a keeper. I have made this 5 times this summer. My family loves it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was delicious and so easy to make. Based on some of the other reviews I read, I omitted the sugar from the peach mixture too and it worked out great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy is right. I melt the butter right in the pan while the oven preheats and I get the peaches ready. I have yet to add any sugar to the peaches - they were super ripe and super sweet, so just added cinnamon and fresh grated nutmeg. It is also easy to halve the recipe when you are only making it for two people and don't want to have it around to pig out on! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent, don't need to change a thing. Comes out perfect every time. It's ridiculously simple and easy and needs to be a staple in every home. It only requires a few ingredients that I always have on hand. Never again will I attempt to make peach cobbler with nasty hard crust that most recipes have. item not reviewed by moderator and published
To anyone looking for a great easy peach cobbler recipe...try this one. It is one of the best I have ever made. Follow the recipe as written and you'll have a winner every time. I make this time and time again. ENJOY!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious. So easy to make, will keep this one on hand to make in the future. Served to children, everyone loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sooo easy and super yummy. The second time I made it I used 1/2 peaches and 1/2 mango. The kids said this was a MAKE AGAIN!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
VERY easy. I had ripe peaches so I only added 1/2 cup of sugar to them after reading other reviews and it was still sweet enough. I gave it a 4 only because I like a more biscuity top on cobbler and I couldn't give it a 4.5, but I will make this again! My boyfriend gave it a 5. Yum. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was super easy and really delicious. I have eaten my fair share of peach cobbler but never made my own. The only problem I had was that it was too sweet. My peaches were delicious and very sweet, so I was unaware that I should cut back on the sugar in the recipe. Otherwise - I loved it. Brought it to my office and didn't have any left at the end of the day! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing! Perfect cobbler recipe. This will be the go to cobbler recipe for me from now on. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tried this for first time. I used fresh peaches and followed recipe exactly except I decreased the 1 cup of sugar that goes into the peaches by about 1/3 and it still tasted great! Next time I will also try to reduce the amount of butter by 1 or 2 tablespoons, just to try to reduce a few calories.I did use a little cinnamon and nutmeg in the peach mixture. Recipe is a keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is by far the BEST peach cobbler I have tasted. I did use only half the amount of sugar that the recipe calls for. Also, I added a little, vanilla extract, all spice and cinnamon to the peach mixture. Didn't have fresh peaches so I used 2 bags of the frozen kind w/out sugar. After reading the reviews I was a bit skeptic about the batter actually rising... I peeked in the oven after about 25 minutes of cooking and I could tell that this was going to be one special cobbler. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because I did have to add additional spices and flavoring to take it up a notch. This will definitely be my go to recipe from now on... Thank you, Sarah!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I love this peach cobbler! I can't say anything else but that it's DELICIOUS! I'll definitely make it again...and again and again.... item not reviewed by moderator and published
The cake-like topping makes this cobbler. There are no soda biscuits to make or taste. I do not add the nutmeg and/or cinnamon -- it really doesn't need these spices. There is flavor enough with the peaches especially when they are fresh and tree ripe! I highly recommend this recipe for family and gatherings. Don't forget to have some vanilla ice cream on hand. The term peaches and cream is definitely defined with this recipe. It's a winner!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this twice now, but used mixed berries rather than peaches. Really, any fruit will do. This is WONDERFUL & so incredibly easy! I also add cinnamon & nutmeg to batter. If you do use mixed berries, I suggest adding a little corn starch so it's not too "wet" Enjoy!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe tonight and I would not make this again. The flour mixture was tasteless. Not what I had expected for a simple recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome and easy. The most time-consuming thing was peeling the peaches. I cut the entire sugar amount down by 1/2, and the final product was perfect. I'll probably cut down the sugar a little more next time, but not drastically. Definitely a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was looking for a good cobbler recipe for my husband. He missed his Grandmothers old fashioned cobbler and i had to agree it was the best and she was going to pass it with some other family favorites to me but i never got to say goodbye when that time came, so in desperation for all five of the grandma,s cobblers i found this one and converted it, i made it my own and God they loved it so did I then i lost it it was the day they were working on the site and i could get recipes but not into my box so try it its the greatest ive found try it then make it your own IT BROUGHT BACK GREAT GRANDMAS FEELING OF WARMTH AND COMFORT. My kids even loved it they could remember that taste of long gone holidays when they were little its easy and well worth the effort. item not reviewed by moderator and published

My family loved this recipe! I was concerned it would be too simple, but turns out that's exactly how you want it! I stirred in a lot of cinnamon into the peach mixture after I turned it off and I also added a sprinkle of cinnamon to the batter before pouring it in to the pan. I ended up sharing so much we're already out and I have to make another one! Filed up "keeper"! item not reviewed by moderator and published
A friend of mine brought me a bushel of peaches from Georgia and all he want in payment was peach cobbler. I found this recipe and made it for his family. He picked it up right out of the oven and took it home. The ice cream, that they "made" him pick up on the way home had not even melted on the cobbler before my phone rang and they raved about it, even the teenagers !!!!! It is a simple recipe and a show stopper. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this last night for my daughter's birthday...Peaches are her favorite fruit. I changed it a bit, using 1 cup of brown sugar in the peach mixture (I left the white sugar in the batter mixture) plus I added 1 tsp. vanilla and a dash of cinnamon to the peaches. Everyone wanted the recipe. I have more peaches so I'm going to make it again today...really simple. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is amazing. First time making cobbler. Fresh fruit is key here. Used 1/3 less sugar. Delicious. Fresh whipped cream to top it off. A 10 year old can make this. Sprinkled cinnamon and nutmeg on top. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this just a few hours ago and both my husband and I loved it. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out perfect. The crust layer is certainly more of a cake consistency than that of your more "traditional" cobblers, but still tastes delicious. I definitely want to try baking an apple or berry cobbler using this recipe! Thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is so simple.I couldn't believe it. My 5yr old daughter was my assistant. This recipe is fool proof. Perfect for anyone! This was so yummy! My family couldn't stop eating it!!

I TRIED THIS RECIPE FOR THE FIRST TIME TODAY. PEACHES ARE IN SEASON AND WAS LOOKING FOR A GOOD /EASY RECIPE. THIS IS THE BEST COBBLER I HAVE EATEN SINCE I WAS ALITTLE GIRL WHEN MY GRANDMA USED TO MAKE IT. I KNOW IT WILL BE A HIT WHEN I MAKE IT FOR FAMILY. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I substituted an equal amount of fresh blackberries and added another 1/2 cup of sugar to compensate for tarter fruit. Turned out terrific! You could use whatever fresh fruit is in season. This is so easy I don't see how anyone could mess it up unless they burn it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best peach cobbler I have ever tasted. I have made it for company and just for family. It is always a big hit. Everyone asks for the recipe. I use two bags of frozen peaches instead of fresh peaches since fresh ones are not readily available. Other than that, I made it according to the recipe. I have served it with vanilla icecream or with whipped topping, however, it is delicious just plain. I have made it with cinnamon and without. Both tasted delicious. I plan to try it with other fruits as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was my first time making this cobbler i did change it up a little, i used one an half cups of sugar and used 2 large cans of peaches and poured out the syrup then added the half cup of sugar and lemon. i didn't pour all the syrup into the cobbler doing that would have made it too sweet. After that i followed the rest of the direction and it turned out to be one of the best peach cobblers i have ever had. Now there are people asking me to make this peach cobbler for their families. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been making this recipe since it first aired and it is so easy and good. I have used frozen peaches and blueberries when I couldn't get fresh and it is just as good. I don't use as much sugar as the recipe calls for and it's perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I am no baker and this recipe was fast and easy. The most time consuming, was pealing the peaches. I would definitely make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just didn't care for it. It was too much like a cake - not my idea of a cobbler. I mixed blueberries in with the peaches - a good combination - it was a big hit with my guests - which is why I gave the rest of it to them to take home! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is good, but definitely needs some modification. First, the crust is too sweet -- 1 cup of sugar is too much. Second, the cobbler itself is too sweet and I only used 1/3 a cup of sugar verses the 1 cup of sugar called for. Finally, 1 stick of butter is overkill. If you cut all these amounts down, which I will do the next time, I am sure it will be a hit. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I've never written a review. This was so good and easy I had to write and say pick this recipe!! You won't be sorry. I added 1/2 tsp van and a 1/2 tsp almond since I love the flavors.

No fresh peaches this time of year so I used canned since I had them on hand). Just drainoff the syrup VERY well. I skipped the whole peach cooking part of the recipe. I melted the butter, dropped the dough on top, then spooned peaches (and some thawed frozen blueberries) on top. Delicious and easy.

It turned out wonderful! It was a little bit sweet, but I think I may have overdid it on the sugar when I was boiling the peaches. There were some other reviews that said their's turned out doughy or gooey on the bottom- I'm wondering if they didn't put enough flour in the beginning(??), mine had the perfect consistency- not to dry nor doughy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
