This recipe is very old and was my grandmother's. This is a very delicious cobbler and can also be used with blueberries. Hope you enjoy this as our family has all these years.

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!Read More
Very liquidy and never set up for me even after leaving the pan in the oven longer. Top ended up starting to burn when I finally pulled it out and it still was like batter under the crust. Won't make again. Not a good recipe if everyone has to make so many modifications to the original to make it work.Read More

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!!
I tried this recipe for the first time with much trepidation. It appeared I would need an engineering degree to pull it off. I mean really, pouring boiling water over perfectly good ingredients? However I tried it anyway, halfway through I tasted the batter - it was horribly salty. My husband said bake it anyway maybe it would get better in the oven. So I proceeded per instructions. It smelled wonderful! We were all salivating over it as I pulled it out of the oven perfectly golden. I was so proud of myself. We all waited in anticipation of that first bite... SALTY!! My husband took a wopping serving determined to eat it anyway... he ate it like he had a sore tooth grimacing with every bite. Something was seriously wrong! So I went in search of the cause and THERE on the counter I discovered a completely emty salt canister, my ever helpful two year old had decided to refill the sugar container. So my cobbler had about two cups of salt. The flies refused to land on it. *sigh* I did attempt this recipe at a later date and it was fabulous. Helpful tip: ALWAYS check the sugar before baking. :)
Wow - this just came out of the oven and I had four pieces - it's that good! I followed reviewers' advice and cut the sugar in the peaches to 1 cup and the water to 1 cup. I also added vanilla to the water. I used six peaches. Yum! Update: I love cobblers really peachy so next time I tried this with eight peaches. It didn't work - way too much liquid and it didn't bake properly. So I see that six is the way to go.
YUMMY!!! I've never made cobbler before, but this was easy and delicious! I took into consideration some of the helpful suggestions made in other reviews, and was quite pleased! I DOUBLED the fruit, and used HALF the sugar AND half the water. It was the perfect combination of fruit and dough! A definate keeper :)
I made this cobbler this morning and my husband and I have already eaten at least a third of it! The cobbler is delicious. I did follow the recommendations of so many others: increasing peaches to 6 and reducing sugar to 1 cup (for peaches). I also added 1 tsp. vanilla to batter and substituted unsalted butter for the shortening. I, too, had to bake longer...almost 1 1/4 hours...but I'm sure that the additional peaches has something to do with the longer cooking time. This is a real keeper! Thanks Jannette for sharing!
very good...i made this twice...the first time with canned peaches, they turned out mushy and soggy, then when made with fresh peaches it was great!!!
This cobbler is the best I have ever made! I get requests for it all the time now. I also used 5 large peaches, only 1 cup of sugar, and only 1 cup of boiling water and it turned out delicious!
Wow! This recipe is awesome! I,too used only 1 cup of sugar in peach mixture and it was perfectly sweet. I also only used 1 cup of boiling water and the cobbler was plenty juicy. I had to bake mine much longer than 45 minutes, probably more like 1 hour and ten minutes to get it to set and brown on top. That could have been my oven, but I normally don't have problems with bake times. My toddler liked it and that's unusual. I will definitely make again. I could eat the whole thing!!!
I only gave this recipe four stars because it needed to be tweaked. Like the other reviewers, I reduced the boiling water to one cup, and melted four Tbsp. butter into it. I reduced the sugar you add to the peaches to one cup and used brown sugar instead of granulated sugar (MUCH better!) In addition to the cinnamon, I added a half tsp. of ground ginger and a pinch of salt to the peaches and a little cornstarch for gelling insurance purposes! I cannot imagine what would have happened if I added 2 cups of boiling water. It wouldn't have fit into my 10x10 baking dish, that's for sure. As it was it took about an hour to fully bake to evaporate all the water off and for the center to set. In the end, this recipe was fab! Best cobbler I ever made. I was curious to try it since I had never made a cobbler where you pour boiling water over the top! I don't know quite what it does, but it turns out great.
I came across this recipe in my All Recipes cookbook and did not take the time to read others' comments as I usually do, but it still came out fine. I cut back on the sugar because the fresh peaches I used were plenty sweet. I used five large peaches and only used about 1 1/2 cups water. The filling ran over a little bit, so next time I will only use 3/4-1 cup of water. For added flavor I sprinkled nutmeg in with the cinnamon. Oh, and if you have trouble peeling peaches here is a tip: Dunk them in boiling water for 30 seconds, let them set for a couple of minutes and the peel comes right off. Try it! Thanks for sharing Jeannette.
This was my third peach cobbler recipe this week and by far the best. What made this one special is the clever butter method. DELICIOUS. Beware, underneath the cobler crust it's like a soggy cake or a pudding. I skimped on sugar and witheld some water. Everyones pans may be different so play it by ear. I also piled in as many peaches as possible. Another trick I used when placing the peaches on the dough is to leave them 1" away from the edges of the pan. I took that extra batter and carefully lined the edges of the peaches with more batter. It made the crusty edges double delicious! I will make this again if I do not find a better recipe.
All I can say is this is heaven in a baking dish! I picked this recipe b/c it had the best rating. I am so glad I did. Although this is not helping me stick to my diet. It has been a HUGE hit with everyone I am sharing it with. We have a peach tree so I used our own fresh peaches. Yummy!!
This is delicious. The crust is my favorite with this cobbler. Next time I will add extra peaches.
This recipe was good! I used a 13x9 inch pan, reduced the water to 1 1/2 cup, reduced the sugar (in the peaches) to 1 cup, added a half teaspoon of nutmeg, and used 7 peaches. It turned out perfectly! Next time I make it I will keep all of those changes and add just a couple more peaches. I like my cobblers very peachy!
Very liquidy and never set up for me even after leaving the pan in the oven longer. Top ended up starting to burn when I finally pulled it out and it still was like batter under the crust. Won't make again. Not a good recipe if everyone has to make so many modifications to the original to make it work.
I've only made cobbler a few times, but this is the best recipe I've ever used. The only changes I made were using 7 fresh peaches instead of 3 and 1 cup of boiling water instead of 2. It was very good, but very sweet. I would reduce the sugar next time, but it's very good anyway. I can't wait to try this with blueberries and blackberries. Thanks for the recipe! This will be my cobbler standard now. :) ****EDIT**** I made this with blueberries and it's delicious, as well. I reduced the sugar this time to 3/4 cup in the crust and added a tsp. of vanilla, and 1 cup on the berries and added some lemon juice to them. Used one pint of berries, which resulted in the cooking time being increased to an hour and five minutes. You could get away with less blueberries, but it still came out great and definitely still sweet enough. I LOVE this recipe and am making the peach cobbler for my dad for Father's Day!
Oh my heavens!!! This is incredible!!! I used butter instead of shortening and only used half the sugar with the peaches (which were off of our tree), added a couple of peaches and only half of the boiling water. Stellar cobbler!!! I am deleting all other peach cobbler recipies and ONLY using this one!! Thanks Jan!
What went wrong?? Using the advise of others I increased the number of peaches to 5 large ones, reduced the sugar on them to 1 cup, used 1 cup boiling water and baked for an hour. It tastes great but is more of a peach pudding than a cobbler. No solid cake just gummy mush.
I've tried many peach cobbler recipes. It's my favorite dessert. But this really takes the cake. I used a lot less sugar. 1/2 c for the peaches and 1 1/4 cup for the batter. I also followed others' suggestions: use 1 cup of boiling water with 2 tbs of butter.
I was craving a good peach cobbler when i fell upon this!! And i was delighted when it came out so perfectly moist!! I too went with the other suggestions and used 4 peaches (Its what i had but i will deff use 6 next time) 1 cup of sugar instead of 1 1/2 and I also used 1 cup of water and 4tbs of butter. I also added 1 tsp of vanilla and a pinch of nutmeg!! Will be saving this recipe and passing it on!! I also served mine warm with Vanilla Ice Cream yummmm!!!
I only had 1/4 c shortening, so I made half a recipe. I baked it in a 2 qt round casserole dish. It was WONDERFUL!!!! I took the advise of others & only did 1/2 of the amount required for the boiling water & butter, and it was good, but the next time I do it I am going to use it all. I like it with more of a sauce than it had; if you like a less juicy cobbler - only use half. The recipe was wonderful & shouldn't be altered.
Best of the best. I read all the reviews and feeling adventurous, I ignored all the suggestions and used as much liquid as recipe called for. It looked impossible when I placed it in the oven - this is going to end up a soupy thing, I thought. NOT! It is absolutely delicious. Now - just as with a pie, we cooled it completely (just as you would a fruit pie). But I certainly would not negotiate the liquid measurement until you tried recipe first. Altitude certainly can need an adjustment. We did need to cut back 1/2 cup of sugar, but this is because I used frozen peaches in light syrup from last season.
DELICIOUS! Followed exact recipe... Easy and yummy.
This is an amazingly good recipe! I was a little worried about putting the topping on the bottom and pouring water over it at first, but it turned out great. I personally like mine to be a little more fruity, so I use 5 peaches instead of 3.
This was not the kind of cobbler I was looking for. I wanted something more doughy. This recipe came out more like a crisp. It was also too sweet. It went over well tho! No one complained.
My sister and I made this and reduced the boiling water to 1/2 cup. It was VERY sweet and we plan to reduce the sugar next time! The cobbler part was very yummy and cake-like. We also added 3 times the peaches called for. Very good! Thanks......
WOW!! Absolutely fabulous!! I made a few alterations. I used tons of peaches-lost count! I used a 9X13 pan. Only added one cup of sugar and a little more cinnamon. I used a cup of butter flavored Crisco and omitted the butter/boiling water completely. It is GONE!! This is by far the best cobbler recipe I've ever made. Can't wait to try it with blueberries! Thanks Jannette! This is a winner!
Very good. Followed suggestions of less sugar and more peaches. Glad I did so. It would have been way too sweet. The fresh peaches I used were sweet enough.
Perfect old-fashioned cobbler! Batter rises to the top and surrounds the peaches in a gooey pudding like mixture. Delicious with vanilla ice cream on top. I reduced the sugar (from 1 1/2 cups to about 3/4 cup) based on other reviews and to be honest, I thought the cobbler wasn't quite sweet enough even though the peaches I used were very sweet. Next time, I'll use at least 1 cup.
My husband and I both agree that this is the best peach cobbler we have ever had. My husband did think there should be more peaches. I did find it difficult to find a 10X10 pan and had to use 8X8 and bake a little longer. Will be shopping for a 10X10 pan, if only for this recipe. This may be an old recipe but are't they sometimes the best of all.
Well.. let's say that I can't make anything from scratch.. nothing!! So I decided to try this since it seemed you can change a number of things and still succeed. I used canned peaches instead (equivalent to 6-7 whole peaches.. you really can't get by with the 3 it calls for). I also put 1 cup of sugar with the peaches and thought it seemed like a lot so didn't add the 1/2 cup more. I also upped the cinnamon to 2 tsp. Instead of pouring the water over the top, I saved the juices from the cans instead! Worked out great! I think I made this about an hour ago and it's almost gone... I only wish I had some vanilla ice cream to add to the top! If I can make this.... ANYONE CAN.
was very good I did use the suggestion of others and used only one cup of suger, and one cup od boiling water. the pan was empty buy the end of day. thanks
I cut the sugar in half on this recipe and it was still very sweet. It was super easy to make and turned out a very tender dough that melted in your mouth.
Very good, I think. This was the first time I have ever had any type of cobbler, so I had nothing to compare it to. My dish wasn't big enough, so it bubbled over a bit in the oven. Also, I cut more peaches than the recipe suggested because the 3 didn't seem like enough. I would probably make this again.
One more thing......try doubling the amount of peaches it calls for, I used 6 and it was just right. Enjoy!
This is a great cobbler! I was searching for one that called for fresh peaches and I love the addition of cinnamon as well. I am rating four stars only because the cooking time was not long enough. Mine was not cooked at 45 minutes. 15 more minutes did the trick and the middle was then done. Great with whipped cream. Will make again!
Wow. My husband loves peach cobbler so I wanted to make him one for our first year anniversary. I can't believe how great it came out. It does tend to be on the sweet side, so adjust it to your taste. However, I've never had a dough that tasted so good and moist. I was hesitant to pour the 2 cups of water on top of the whole thing, but it paid off with giving me a yummy cobbler with lots of gooey peaches and sauce! Thanks. A keeper.
First cobbler I've ever made. I did increased the fruit cause I had ton of peaches at home but forgot to decrease the sugar amount as others recommended. It would probably deserve 5* then but without these adjustments it was too sweet and chewy with the caramelized sugar. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU USE MORE PEACHES AND LESS SUGAR!!!
I have never made peach cobbler before. I just finished making this and I love it's simplicity and flavor. Thanks!
Waaaaay too sweet. I love sweets-can't live without them. But not this much. I even reduced the sugar in the peaches to 1 cup and in the flour mix I out 1 cup. I used fresh peaches so I wouldn't have the worry about extra sweetness with canned. Don't like the crust because it's not. It's a dough. And I only used 1 cup of water to pour over the mixture. The only good thing in this recipe was the peaches. I think I'll pass on this one. Don't waste your peaches.
This recipe was really good. I did the modifications recommended by others and it turned out great. It was a little cake like which was different but the flavor was incredible.
more like a peach cake then cobbler, but excellent
Oh my goodness! This is a great recipe. Will definitely make again. In fact, I'm having it cold for breakfast at this very moment. Like some others, I only added half the amount of water. Also, my shortening was rancid so I just used butter its place. It's really cool how the crust rises up above the peaches as it cooks.
Holy Smokes...this recipe Terrified me! Pouring boiling water over perfectly beautiful peaches & batter was quite an experience - if not for rave member reviews, I Never would've attempted it. Everyone was totally correct, tho...it was aMazing! My changes [because, of course, there were many!] to lower the sugar/fat considerably were; 6 peaches instead of 3 [which upped the flavor quotient!], 2/3 cup sugar is all that was needed to perk up the peaches along with 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. For the batter, half stick of unsalted butter & 1/4 cup ground flaxseed was just enough fat & really lightened it up with 2/3 cup of sugar giving it just the right touch of sweetness. I added the peach juice to the boiling water to make 1 cup along with 1 teaspoon of vanilla & just 2 Tablespoons of butter, then held my breath & poured!!! Baked for an hour, left to gel for another half hour, the smell is Divine - this cobbler is truly to Die For!! With homemade whipped cream or frozen vanilla yogurt on top...O.M.G.!!! Kudos to Jan for the original – hope you enjoy the modifications.
This cobbler tasted great though needed to be cooked for more than an hour and fifteen minutes. I took others' suggestions and reduced the sugar in the peaches to 1 cup and the boiling water to 1 cup. Maybe reducing the boiling water to half a cup would have been better? The cobbler was definitely soupy.
Great recipe but only with revisions, hence only 4 stars. I followed another reviewers advice and I can't imagine it would have been successful had I not. I used 9 peaches - that's a whole lot more than 3!! I only used 1 cup sugar in the peaches which was more than ample, and 2 tsp. cinnamon. I only used 3/4 cup sugar in the batter, again more than sufficient. I only used 1 cup of boiling water - 2 cups would definitely have been too much. My peaches were very ripe so there was a lot of juice from the peaches. I baked it in a 9 x 13 inch pan.
Delicious! I used 5 peaches and followed the recipe -- except I used a glass 13 x 9 pan instead. It was wonderful -- however, next time I think I'll add even more peaches. The more fruit the better. A must try recipe, thanks!
This was so good! I followed others' advice, and reduced the sugar to one cup, and only added on cup of boiling water. I also added a little cinnamon to the batter because I love cinnamon and never think you can have too much. My son doesn't like the skin of peaches, so I only had nectarines in the house, and they were perfect..I didn't even bother peeling them. I really think you could use a variety of fruits, particularly berries. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
Made this for my family,and they went nuts. My daughter said it was the best she has ever eaten.I have made it with canned peaches too. Both are delicious. I will make again and again.
Tried this yesterday and it was a hit! Unfortunately, I used canned peaches. Since they're sweeter than the fresh ones, I'd recommend less 1/2 cup of sugar to mix with them (recipe for 6 servings)
I used 8 mostly smallish fresh fron the tree peaches, cut the water to 1 cup, baked for 1 hour and left the rest as listed. I was very nervous because I was taking this dish to a family dinner. My mother in law and her mother make a wonderful peach cobbler. This was a last minute thing and this was all I had to take. So.... Everyone really liked it. However, the peaches tasted more like apples. Most likely the cinnamon helped this idea along. We dubbed it the "peach haters peach cobbler". It went over quite well, but not what a expected. Still it will most likely show up at my house again. Not bad.
Was looking forward to an outstanding dessert, but was disappointed. I baked it 25 minutes longer than recipe said and the crust was still thin and gooey. Not sure I will try this again as I have a favorite from Good Housekeeping recipe book.
LOVED this recipe, as did my whole family! We did as others suggested and reduced the sugar to 1C, (1/2 brown and 1/2 white), and honestly, I think you could easily go down to 3/4C, and I will do so next time as it was still VERY sweet even at 1 full cup! I also only added 1C of water. Thanks for this recipe, it is a keeper!
I used 9 fresh peaches (they're homegrown and a bit smaller), 1 cup sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon in the fruit; 3/4 cup sugar in the batter; 1 cup hot water + vanilla for the pouring over. This was a really delicious cobbler! Everyone in my family loves peach cobbler but we'd never made it, and with the modifications, it came out great! I might use only 3/4 cup hot water next time, but other than that, lovely recipe!
WONDERFUL!!! I have tried MANY peach cobbler recipes and I believe this is the best one. I didn't use quite as much boiling water and it came out perfect. Thanks so much for sharing!!
Sounds like everybody makes this recipe a little differently. I followed the recipe except I used 5 peaches and only 1 1/4 cups water. It was fantastic. This will be my only cobbler recipe from now on. I can't wait to try it with blueberries!
I rated this 5 stars, but that only applies if you like cakey cobbler. I used 1C. sugar on the fruit, which was just right for me. And 1 1/2 C. water because my 9x9 pan couldn't hold any more. It turned out well, there was a lot of juice when I first cut into it, but that was probably because I had to have some immediately! But all the extra juice absorbed into the cake and kept it moist.
I didn't like this recipe. It was too soupy even after cutting back on the water. I would cut back on the sugar too and use more peaches. Also, it wasn't the best cobbler dough I've tasted. I guess, if the recipe does not work well as it was originally posted, I can't give it a good review. It needed too many modifications and all the reviews didn't seem to agree on just want the adjustments should be. I wouldn't make this again.
This is the best peach cobbler recipe I have ever used. I was very skeptical about the boiling water, but it works perfectly. This is for those who don't care for a pie-like crust. I keep forgetting the cinnamon and it's fine without it.
I did not care for this recipe. It took way longer than 45 min. to cook - We had it in the oven for a total of 3 hours and even then it was still soupy. Not worth the time, effort or caloric intake.
I made a half "batch" of this recipe yesterday, we ate all of that, and I had to make more today. It is VERY yummy. This time I made it with 2 quart jars of home-canned peaches (ran out of fresh). I was concerned that they would be mushy, but it still turned out great. Now I know I can make this any time of year. I use half of the sugar on the peaches and half of the water poured on top. I actually used the peach juice instead of the water the 2nd time. You can't mess it up!! Thanks for the yummy recipe. My mom doesn't cook much, but she actually asked for this recipe. That says a lot.
Oh WOW!! This is it. The cobbler I have been looking for. I made it twice for Thanksgiving because I forgot to add the water to the first one, which was cherry. It turned out to be just like peach cobbler IV found on this site. It looked beautiful and I couldn't wait to try it until I remembered I forgot to add the water. Now adding all of this water just didn't seem right. But, I tried it anyway, this time using peaches. This was soooo good. Made a sauce. Next time I will substitute butter for the shortening add a little more sugar. I always flavor my pie filling with cinnamon, nutmeg, and mace. Delicious. P.S. After reading some of thiese reviews, perhaps I forgot the sugar, that's why it wasn't sweet enough for me. I used canned peach pie filling, which is already sweetened. However, I always add sugar to canned pie filling. For some reason I forgot this time. It was Thanksgiving eve. Very busy. Can't wait to try again. Follow-up: Made this last night for my husband's job. I used 3 cans of peaches. I doubled the dough recipe. After I made my main cobbler, which was about 1 and 1/2 times larger than the original recipe, I had enough leftover to make a small cobbler for us. I don't like a lot of cakie dough so I used less dough and a lot of filling. I used butter in the dough before. Not necessary. Did not change the tast a lot. I will add cinnamon and nutmeg to the dough next time, see how that goes. Wonderful recipe.
This is so good and so easy to make! It's a family favourite. The only things I do different is use 4 peaches instead of 3 and have on occasion substituted butter for the shortening. I've also made it with canned (in water only) peaches and frozen peaches. It all works! I serve it with a little drizzle of light cream.
This turned out great! I followed some of the other reviewer's suggestions and cut the sugar and water to 1 cup each. Next time i will definetly use at least twicw the peaches, but it turned out perfect and looked great.
As suggested in many of the reviews I cut the sugar to 1 cup for the peaches and 3/4 cup for the batter. I also added 1 tsp of vanilla extract. I gave four stars becase this was really good, but not what I think of as cobbler. I'd call it more like a cake I think.
Follow this recipe, Just add a few more peaches..I used 7 peaches. Turned out great! Better when its warm right out of the oven.
Oh soooo good! I made this in the Summer with fresh peaches (five smaller ones) and only 1 cup of the boiling water in a 9 X 13 inch pan. I'm going to try it today with canned peaches- yes I know not AS good. I like that this recipe does not use a pre-made mix!
This was fantastic. I followed several of the reviews and used 6 peaches and only 1 cup of sugar in a 9x13 pan. I also added 1 tsp vanilla to the milk in the batter and a little grated crystallized ginger to the peaches. I used the entire 2 cups of boiling water and it turned out with a great consistency. I'm adding this to my list of keepers.
WOW!!! I can't say enough. This was delicious. I cut the sugar in HALF though because the first time it was too sweet. I DOUBLE the fruit, HALF the sugar. I am pregnant and craving cobbler and I could eat this stuff ALL DAY LONG!!!
A great recipe. I followed the suggestions of other reviewers and used half the sugar with the peaches and only 1 cup of water with the butter. Turned out great, although, I did cook it for closer to 80 minutes but that could just be my oven. I used 3 very large peaches (probably about 4-5 cups sliced) and that was just about right.
Amazing I followed CHI BA suggestions with a little change. I peeled and sliced the peaches and put them on a pan to cook add the sugar cinammon and 1/2 of orange juice mix it all together and baked it OMG is all I can say PERFECT!!!
This was just so sugary. I personally love sugar, I have a huge sweet tooth. I found that, although it was really tasty, I couldn't really taste the peaches which made me really sad. I think next time I'll either add more peaches, reduce the sugar, or both.
This is the best cobbler I have ever had. I just made it and couldn't wait for it to cool down, I will make this a lot. I used 6 peaches they were medium sized, and used the advice of 1 cup of sugar. THE BEST!!!!!!
Used half the water, more peaches like most others suggested, and used half brown sugar, half white and baked in a 8x11 pan... it almost didn't fit! Also added some blackberries I picked in the yard. Yummy!
This is very tasty recipe. I cut to half sugar and half splenda. This resulted in a sweet cobbler with out a large after taste from the splenda.
I used the size pan reccommended by this recipe and was way too small, everything came over the pan and made a HORRIBLE mess in my oven!!! I thought to myself when I first read this recipe that I should use a 9x13 pan, and didn't because noone else had mentioned this problem. I also next time would use frozen peaches, which would be a lot easier. Taste was very good though.
Great recipe except I would make some changes.It was too sweet for us, a little too wet in the middle after baking it for 45 min.and it needed more peaches. Therefore, next time I will decrease sugar on the peaches to 1 cup add 1 1/2 cups of boiling water instead and increase peaches by two more peaches. The kids loved it with a little whipped cream on top of their piece. This cobbler recipe is a keeper, wonderful. Thanks Jan.
Awesome Cobbler!!! I was a little apprehensive of using white peaches, as I had heard that they aren't known for making great cobblers, but they were all I had. So I added lemon juice to the peaches for tartness, and cut sugar back to one cup, also reduced boiling water to one cup, as suggested by previous ratings. Even the "cake" part was amazing! Very very good, can't wait to try it out with different fruit options :)
I'm glad I read the reviews before I made this because it came out very good with a couple of changes. I used lots of peaches - enough to cover the bottom of a 9x13 dish, and used only 1 cup of boiling water with the butter. It was a great way to use the basket of peaches I bought that all ripened at the same time!
Rated five star with the following changes: Use six peaches, 1 cup of sugar and reduce water to only 1/2 cup- - especially with juicy peaches. I added 3/4 cup of blueberries and placed in an 8 x 12 baking dish and baked for 50 minutes. Very sweet but excellent!!! Very, very glad I read the reviews first!
If you are using unripe grocery store peaches the consistency of wood, this is the recipe for you! We used fresh peaches from the farmers market that were naturally sweet and very juicy, and this recipe was a failure. We had peach soup. Do yourself a favor and use a bigger pan, cut the water, and cut the sugar if you are using ripe summer peaches. You might want to add a little flour or cornstarch to the peaches too. Or better yet, find a different recipe. I have tried other versions of this type of cobbler with much success. In my opinion a recipe does not deserve stars if it does not stand on its own. If you have to make a lot of alterations to make it work, then it's not the same recipe.
This recipe is the best! This was my 1st time making a peach cobbler and now I think this will be the only thing I do make. I was really surprised at the finished product. Usually my family reads and follows recipes to the "t" but they never turn out right. This was perfect!!!! My famaily REALLY thanks you.
I took the advise of others and made a few changes and this cobbler was a hit! We got invited to a last minute BBQ at a neighbors and I had just taken this out of the over - I had to promise the recipe before I left. I used 5 large peaches, and cut the sugar to 1 cup in the peaches. I added maybe 1/4 cup of sugar to the flour mixture and it was perfect. I only used 1 cup of water and bakes it all in a 9X13 pan for about 50 minutes. MMMM good. Thanks Jannette!
WOW. I'm eating this right now and I can't believe it so good! I've never made fresh peach cobbler before and I killed it tonight! Husband JUST said as he walked from the living room with an empty bowl, "That was pretty colossal. I'm starting to suspect you have super human skills." Seriously he just said that. I DID make some adjustments- I used melted coconut oil for the shortening, therefore I had to add about a 1/4 cup of flour. I also used about 5 big peaches, and added about 1/2 TBSP of flour to that for the extra juices. Coconut oil is a perfect sub for shortening-WAY healthier and it's now easier to get. Also I had to cook it a little longer-I watched it, but I'd say it was about an extra 15mins. Enjoy! Great recipe, we will keep it.
DELICIOUS!!! I used fresh frozen peaches that I had put up last summer. Instead of the water I used 1 cup of the natural juices on them. It did take longer than suggested to bake. Served with vanilla ice cream. Yummy.
I followed this recipe to a tee as I always do the first time. I do have to agree with some others that it was a bit sweet, but definately not soggy! If you let it set and cool after you take it from the oven, it is of perfect consistency!!! My family loved it! I would only recommend that you do cut the sugar a bit, but I also think if you do that you must reduce the water as well since this combination will tell if it is soggy or not. It would be great with a conbo of apples and peaches, or simply left on their own. Bravo! Will definitely make again!!
This is sooooo good! This is the first peach cobbler I've ever made and I was a bit worried at first about if it would be difficult but this was so simple to follow and is delicious! The thing I did different was that I used canned peaches (29 oz. can) and instead of water I used the juice from the can and ended up using about half the amount required by the recipe. It came out so good both me and my husband ate it and had seconds. I served it warm with vanilla ice cream on top. I would definitely recommend this cobbler! Whether you are a new cook or a veteran cook this cobbler will just blow your mind!
This was great. I cut the sugar to 1C. with the peaches and used twice as many peaches. I also used only 1 C. of the boiling water and could have used even less. I had to bake it for 70 mins. but it was still delicious and would be good with any fruits. My hubby gave it a thumbs up.
Wow! That's all I can say. I did follow a couple other reviews by cutting the sugar in the peaches to 1 cup and using 7 peaches instead of 3. I also cut the water to 1 cup and made it in a 9x13 pan. Perfect.
This was my first peach cobbler and it was great...my brother and I loved it. Next time I make it I am going to try can peaches instead...thanks for sharing
great taste! I cooked about twice as long as recommended, until browned on top. I would make again, cut cut the sugar way down, it was very sweet. company worthy!!
Great recipe with the changes previously suggested (double the peaches, or more, really, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to pour over with butter). I made this in a 9 x 13 dish and it was great. Actual baking time was more like an hour, but it set up just fine and smelled great. Husband said it looked like a picture from a cookbook - tasted great.
After doubling the amount of peaches, cutting the amount of sugar in the peaches by 1/2 cup and reducing the amount of water to 3/4 cup this recipe was FANTASTIC!
This is a wonderful recipe for Peach Cobbler! I used a few more peaches and it did take some time to make, but it was well worth it!!!
It was mushy, runny, and much too sweet.
This cobbler was really good. I doubled the recipe because I had a lot of peaches to use. It turned out great, and it made a really big cobbler, but it won't last long around here. I will use this again...thanks Janette.
