Print Recipe


  • Cookie Scoop (3 tbsp capacity)
  • 9 inch pie dish


Peach Filling

  • 2 ½ lbs peaches, peeled and cored about 10 medium-sized peaches
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch (cornflour) 3 tsp
  • 2 tsp lemon zest from ½ lemon
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice

Cobbler topping

  • 4.4 oz AP flour 1 cup
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp lemon zest from ½ lemon
  • 57 g unsalted butter chilled and cubed (4 tbsp)
  • ½ cup chilled cream 35% fat
  • 2 tsp raw sugar


Peach Filling

  • Preheat oven to 400°F / 205°C. Butter an 8 or 9 inch round baking dish, or an 8 x 8 square baking dish. Set aside until needed.
  • You can choose to peel the peaches or not (this is optional). Slice the peaches into equal-sized pieces (about 12 slices from 1 peach). Place them in a bowl.
  • Add sugar, salt, cornstarch, zest and lemon juice into the bowl, and toss to combine with the peaches.
  • Place the filling ingredients in the prepared baking dish, and bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes, until the peach filling is bubbling. (This can take between 15 - 25 minutes).
  • Prepare the cobbler topping while the filling is baking.

Cobbler topping

  • Wipe clean (with a paper towel) the bowl that you used to assemble the filling.
  • Place the flour, white sugar, salt, and zest in the bowl and mix to combine.
  • Add the chilled, cubed butter and use your hands to rub the butter into the flour. Break the butter into pieces. Make sure to leave pea-sized butter pieces in the flour as well.
  • Add the cream and stir it in to combine. Mix just until combined. Do not over-mix.
  • Cover and refrigerate until needed.

Peach Cobbler

  • When the filling is bubbling, carefully remove the baking dish from the oven and place it in on a heat-proof surface.
  • Using a 3-tbsp cookie scoop, scoop the biscuit topping over the surface of the filling, with ½ inch space between scoops.
  • Sprinkle some raw sugar over the scooped biscuit (optional).
  • Return the dish to the oven, and bake for a further 15 - 20 minutes until the topping has turned golden brown on top.
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately, with ice cream or your choice of topping.
