Whisk together your biscuits mixture and drop the biscuits on top of the warm, sweet peaches. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or greek yogurt for a healthy alternative!
I’ve always loved fruit desserts.
It’s one of the reasons my husband and I rarely share dessert when we go out. He’s all about the chocolate and I’m all about fruit desserts.
One of the desserts we have always agreed on is my Triple Berry Cobbler. It’s one of our absolute favorite summer desserts. As peach season approaches, I knew I wanted to start testing a twist on that favorite to finally master making peach cobbler at home.
How to Easily Peel Peaches
I learned this trick a few years back when I started making my recipe for Peach Raspberry Crisp.
The easiest way to peel peaches is to place a few at a time in boiling water for about 30 seconds, then remove them with tongs and place them in an ice bath (a bowl of ice and water).
Placing them in an ice bath stops them from cooking further but allows the skin to be removed so easily. When peaches are in season, I can peel them without a knife! Other times of the year, this helps me gently peel them with a vegetbale peeler without removing too much of the flesh.
How to Make Homemade Peach Cobbler
Peel and slice peaches
First peel and slice your peaches into 1/2 inch thick slices. At this point, taste your peaches. Are they in season (and sweet) or are they still a little sour (out of season)? If they are super ripe and in season, you may want to reduce the brown sugar by one tablespoon less.
Toss your peaches with brown sugar, flour, and vanilla extract. Cook peach mixture in a pan for 4-5 minutes until peaches soften and become saucy. Pour into a 9×9 baking dish (square or round).
Make the biscuits
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt. Then pour in heavy cream and stir to combine. If the dough is too sticky, add a tablespoon more of flour. You can also use your hands to fold the biscuits over (as you would scones). Then use a biscuit cutter or rip dough by hand to form biscuits.
Place biscuits on top of peach mixture. Brush with cream.
Bake at 400º for 18-20 minutes until biscuits are golden brown.
This is my favorite recipe for dairy free biscuits.
How to Serve Homemade Peach Cobbler
You can’t go wrong with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. But one of my favorite alternatives for serving peach cobbler is serving it with Nancy’s Whole Milk Yogurt.
I’ve worked with Nancy’s Yogurt before to make Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins and their yogurt is so creamy and I love that it’s made without added sugar.
Serving a helping of peach cobbler with a dollop of Nancy’s Whole Milk Yogurt is so refreshing and makes the dessert a bit healthier than serving it with ice cream.
How to Store and Reheat Peach Cobbler
This peach cobbler is at its best when it’s fresh from the oven, but if you’re saving it for later, cover your baking dish and refrigerate.
Reheat individual servings in the microwave or reheat whole baking dish in oven at 350º for about 15 minutes until warm.
Can you use canned or frozen peaches?
Yes! For canned peaches, drain the liquid and then bake the biscuits right on top.
For frozen peaches, thaw first, then bake with biscuits on top.
