  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Combine 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon in a saucepan and whisk to mix. Stir in sliced peaches (see Editor's Note) and lemon juice, tossing until peaches are evenly coated.
  3. Cook filling over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil 1 minute. Pour mixture into an ungreased 2-quart casserole dish. Keep mixture hot in oven while you make the topping.
  4. In a medium bowl combine flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix thoroughly, then cut in shortening until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Add milk and stir until mixture is evenly moistened.
  5. Remove peach filling from oven and drop dough onto peaches in 6 equal-size spoonfuls.
  6. Return cobbler to oven and bake until topping is golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.


  • Editor's Note:
  • To peel peaches, fill a large saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat and add the peaches. Let the fruit sit in the hot water for one minute to loosen the skins. Remove peaches with a slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl of ice water. When peaches are cool enough to handle, slip off the skins and slice.

Excellent! I took others advice and doubled the topping mix - glad I did because it's very good. I also used 5 big fresh peaches and baked in a 9" x 13" glass pan for 25 minutes.

Needed more peaches than recipe called for. Also, I thought the dough recipe was a little too plain so I sprinkled the tops with cinnamon and sugar before baking. Better with ice cream.

I made this for my in-laws and they just loved it!! I prepped all the dry ingredients and cut up the peaches prior to dinner. This made for quick preparation once the dinner dishes were done! ...

OK. I doubled the recipe for topping. I like to use butter instead of shortening.

I think that a hot fresh peach cobbler is about as close to heaven as one can get! This recipe was easy, low in sugar and fat(sort of) and with fresh, fresh peaches came out wonderful. I substi...

I thought this was OK, but was a bit disappointed. I felt it needed more sugar and there certainly wasn't enough topping. I made two cobbler recipes; one peach and one mixed berry. I'll have to ...

The perfect summertime dessert--an old-fashioned peach cobbler, with a sweet biscuit topping that isn't the slightest bit doughy. Preheating the fruit mixture blends the sugar and thickening ni...
