Grandmom's Peach Cobbler


There are 1000 different ways to make peach cobbler, this is my version.

One of my family's favorite desserts is my grandmother's cobbler. I will always associate cobbler with my grandmom.

Before she passed away, I can remember calling her for the recipe. Problem was, my grandmother didn't need measuring utensils to cook.  She eyeballed everything!  So naturally, the first few times I made it I was disappointed when it didn’t turn out just right.  Fast forward to 2012…I have now perfected my grandma's recipe.

The perfect summer comfort food.  It just wouldn't be summer without cobbler.  Serve with vanilla ice cream and it's delicious! Indulge!  You won't be sorry you did!

Ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup very cold butter

10 to 12 large peaches, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, cut it into small pieces
1/4 cold water

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Butter the inside of a 2-1/2 quart baking dish.

Combine 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the cold, diced butter in a large bowl.  Using a pastry blender or a fork combine until mixture is crumbly.  Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour, to set. 

Place sliced peaches into the bottom of baking dish.  Sprinkle sugar, then cinnamon evenly on top of peaches.  Top with small butter pieces.     

Take the mixture out of the refrigerator.  Use a fork to separate crumbs, then sprinkle evenly over peaches.  Drizzle cold water over top.

Bake for 1 hour, until the top is lightly browned and the juices are bubbly.  Serve warm.

*This recipe was made in loving memory of my grandmom.

  2. Such a nice tribute to your grandmother. One of my favorite childhood memories is MY grandmothers peach cobbler. My mother did it justice too. Neither used utensils. I've never been able to get it just the way they did. Maybe it's in my head that theirs just tasted better.

  3. Yum! Funny, my daughter was just talking about calling her grandma (94) for a couple recipes, and I warned her...grandma will tell you...a little of this, a dab of that, a pinch of this, etc,! Most of her recipes are trial and error for me too!

  4. That looks good Brand, my grandma was the same way. She made the best applesauce cake I ever tasted. No one in my family can duplicate it. Just let me try baking something without a recipe, yuck! I definitely didn't inherit that gene. How did they do it? Your grandma looks really sweet.This is a really nice tribute to her.

  12. Brandi this looks so delicious! My brother-in-law is a 'freak' for peach cobbler. My sister has been asking me for a recipe, but I never made it before so I couldn't help her out. Yours sound super easy, so I'm sending this to her. This is a such a special tribute to your grandmother. Thanks for sharing.

  15. I've eaten enough Peach Cobbler in my lifetime to understand a well-prepared dish when I see one. Looks awesome.

    Hilarious @ how both of our grandmothers eyeballed in the kitchen.

  32. You have a beautiful grandmom, Brandi! I know she delighted each and every time you asked for that recipe. This looks wonderful and with that dollop of vanilla ice cream on top, I can almost taste the sweet goodness. Thank you for sharing this beautiful tribute to your grandmother and this yummy recipe. I've never made a peach cobbler before. I think it's about time to change that.
