I first made this cobbler back in July 2003. I've made it so many times since then, and on every July 4th, that I don't even have to look at the recipe anymore. The only change I've ever made is to reduce the amount of water to 1 cup, and I ALWAYS use a 9x13 in pan. Works perfectly everytime, and I take home an empty pan EVERY (no exagerations!) time the past 5 years. I use 6-9 fresh peaches, and have used blueberries too. Today, I tried adding a dash of freshly grated nutmeg to the peaches. Still an excellent recipe, and the only one I go to for a cobbler!

I haven't made a cobbler in ages and was hesitant to try this recipe because of conflicting reviews, but I made some modifications and it was AWESOME! I used 8 fresh peaches, 1 cup sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon in the fruit, 3/4 cup sugar and one tsp vanilla in the batter, and 1 cup hot water with 4 Tbsp butter. Baked in a 12 x 9 pan for one hour and let rest for 30 minutes to let the juices gel up. I would give 5 stars, except for the modifications needed. Definitely will make again!


A wonderful-tasting peach cobbler recipe that is so easy to make! At other reviewers recommendations I used 6 fresh peaches instead of 3, 1 cup of sugar instead of 1 1/2 cups, and only 1 cup of boiling water instead of 2 cups. The cobbler came out perfect...moist and full of fruit!!
