In the summer months, fresh sweet peaches are abundant and we look forward to the cinnamon-y smell of delicious cobbler, homemade jams and peach delight taking over the kitchen. In this particular recipe, the cobbler topping is the real win though- bringing the flavors altogether with a flaky cinnamon topping.
One of the perks of living in the southeastern part of the USA is the ability to grow our own delicious fresh peaches and I can honestly tell you, nothing beats the delicious aroma of fresh peach cobbler wafting throughout the entire house!

Perfect Peach Cobbler Recipe

You’ll Need:
8 fresh peaches (peeled, pitted, and sliced into chunks)
2 tablespoons white sugar
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon cornstarch

Cobbler Topping:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoon white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/4 cup cold water

Cinnamon Sugar Topping:
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch, mixing well. Add the fresh peach slices and gently toss until the peaches are coated evenly, then transfer the coated peaches into a greased two-quart (8×8) baking dish and bake at 425F for 10 minutes.

While the peaches are baking, prepare the cobbler topping. In a bowl combine flour, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Use a pastry blender to cut in the cold butter. Then, stir in the water until just combined.

Take the peaches out of the oven and drop spoonfuls of the topping over them. Sprinkle the entire cobbler with the sugar and cinnamon.

Bake the cobbler for about 12-16 minutes, or until the topping is golden. Enjoy! Serve with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream, if desired.
