Rated as 4.62 out of 5 Stars

"I was searching for a peach cobbler recipe that reminded me of the yummy dessert I ate as a young girl in Southeast Missouri. No shortcuts here. Fresh peaches and homemade crust...but worth every minute! Absolutely delicious served warm with vanilla ice cream! Never any leftovers with this dessert!"

  1. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, and salt. Work in the shortening with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and cold water. Sprinkle over flour mixture, and work with hands to form dough into a ball. Chill 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Roll out half of dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Place in a 9x13 inch baking dish, covering bottom and halfway up sides. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  3. In a large saucepan, mix the peaches, lemon juice, and orange juice. Add 1/2 cup butter, and cook over medium-low heat until butter is melted. In a mixing bowl, stir together 2 cups sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cornstarch; mix into peach mixture. Remove from heat, and pour into baked crust.
  4. Roll remaining dough to a thickness of 1/4 inch. Cut into half-inch-wide strips. Weave strips into a lattice over peaches. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar, and drizzle with 1 tablespoon melted butter.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until top crust is golden brown.

Okay, after reading about a hundred posts on this recipe, I've taken all the suggestions and put them together to make an excellent Peach Cobbler that was not runny at all. The filling was smoot...

I picked this recipe because it had a five star rating. My husband is a big peach cobbler fan, and I wanted to really *wow* him. I was not happy with the way this turned out. It was too runny...

I thought this recipe was EXCELLENT. I did make a few changes after reading several of the reviews. I did double the crust recipe-it was a bit much-I could have done just fine with a batch and...

This is absolutely great. I've always been a double crust cobbler girl, but it's hard to find that. I've never made a cobbler before although I consider myself an excellent cook and baker. I ...

Great dessert. Instead of doing the lattice on top of the hot peaches, dust the bottom side of a cookie sheet and do it there. Then you can just slide it on top of the fruit and finish it off....

Wow...scrumptious! This is really more like a giant peach pie than a traditional cobbler -- and that is more than fine with me since I prefer pie crust to spongy cobbler crust. The crust here....

I have tried about eight different recipes in the last few months in an effort to find a great cobbler. My father-in-law never comments on my cooking, but said after trying this one "You need to...

This recipe is great for just the crust alone. I would suggest cutting the sugar in half, as it is awfully sweet. Also, I would add one tablespoon of corn starch to make it thicker and maybe a...

I am not a baker and have never successfully made my own dough! This recipe was excellent. I served it to my husband and his eyes lit up! He requested this, along with other recipes from thi...

My family really loved this cobbler, even the picky ones. I really liked the crust too. Instead of doing a lattice top, I used a small cookie cutter (about 1 1/2 inch) and placed the cut crust...
