Willa’s Peach Cobbler

Willa’s Peach Cobbler

This tried-and-true family recipe has been passed down three generations and is an ode to summer peaches. Made with a traditional biscuit top, this cobbler is simple, delicious and always a crowd pleaser.



2 cups all-purpose flour

1/3 cup of granulated sugar, plus extra to sprinkle over the top

6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

1 large egg

2/3 cup of heavy cream

1 tablespoon of fresh baking powder

½ teaspoon of salt


10 ripe peaches, pitted and sliced

¾ cup sugar

¼ cup brown sugar

2-1/2 tablespoons of flour

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

¼ teaspoon allspice

2 teaspoons of vanilla

1-1/2 tablespoons of butter



Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

For the biscuits: In a large bowl, combine flour, 1/3 cup granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a fork, two knives, or a pastry blender, cut the butter into it until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

Whisk together egg and cream in a liquid-measuring cup. Slowly add this mixture to the dry ingredients; mix with a fork until dough just comes together. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board, and roughly shape into a 12-inch log. Cut into twelve equal portions.

Place rough balls of dough on top of peach mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons granulated sugar. Bake until golden brown, about 45 minutes. Let cool slightly.

For the cobbler filling: mix sugars, flour and spices together; add the mixture to the peaches to combine. Add melted butter and vanilla and gently stir. Place in a buttered 13 x 10 baking dish.

Optional: Top with vanilla ice cream or whip cream and enjoy.
