Description

You’ll have them begging for more!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Ripe Peaches
  • ¾ cups Sugar, Divided
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • ½ cups Butter, Softened
  • 1 whole Egg
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Grated Lemon Zest
  • ¾ cups Flour
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 pinch Salt

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 375° F.

Peel, halve, and pit the peaches. Slice each half into 3 or 4 wedges.

Combine the peaches, ¼ cup of the sugar, and the cornstarch in a large mixing bowl. Let the fruit stand, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves, 5 to 7 minutes.

Make the dough: Cream together the butter and remaining ½ cup sugar in a medium mixing bowl with a wooden spoon or an electric mixer until smooth. Beat in the egg, vanilla, and lemon zest until the batter is smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl once or twice as necessary.

Add the flour, baking powder, and salt and stir until just combined.

Transfer the peaches to an 8-inch square-baking pan. Drop the dough in rounded tablespoonfuls over the fruit.

Bake until the fruit is bubbling and the crust is golden, 50 to 55 minutes. Let the cobbler cool slightly and serve it warm.

I like freshly grated nutmeg and cardamon added to the batter for my peach cobblers. I use fresh, canned and frozen peaches since this is a favorite dessert.

I doubled this recipe and tweaked it a little to use the honey for our bees in place of some of the sugar. So I remember what I did: 1/2 cup honey in the peaches and cornstarch mixture. 3/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup honey in the batter. Also, 1 cup AP flour and 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour. I didn’t have a lemon to zest, so I just used a splash of lemon juice from the fridge. It’s baking now, so I’ll have to report back later!

This is a great recipe and very easy to make. I loved the added lemon zest with the vanilla. Adding this to my recipe collection…:)

This cobbler was SO simple to make. I think the lemon zest did add a little too much lemon and over powered the peach flavor a little bit. I also think I will use more peaches next time!

This wasn’t my favorite cobbler I’ve had. I thought it needed to be a little sweeter, but my husband loved it and loved that it wasn’t really sweet.

Easy, peasy and so yummy! I will leave out the lemon zest next time though or maybe use just 1/2 tsp – thought it took away from the peach flavor.

The lemon zest really does do something special to this recipe. I, however, was not a huge fan of the crust. It was a little too cake-like for me. The flavor was good but the texture was not my favorite. I would also have like the whole thing a little sweeter than it was. Good recipe but, not the best I have ever had.

I’ve got to say this was excellent. The lemon zest takes it over OVER the top.
