Old Fashioned Homemade Peach Cobbler

Bubbling, Buttery, Sweet, Juicy Peach Cobbler………My What A Blessing!!
I have had soooooo many request for me to list an old fashioned style canned peach cobbler. And I’ve been saying I would list one since the beginning of this blog *hangs head down in shame* I am just now getting around to listing a homemade peach cobbler recipe and I feel so ashamed. Go ahead, call me a bad-blogger- friend…person. I deserve it.
 No one will ever believe that you made this here thing of beauty from scratch. Canned peaches works superb in this recipe but you could also use fresh peaches when in season.  So go ahead and make this homemade peach cobbler for your man, place it on the table and say” here you go boo, just a lil something I whipped up! You know how I do it!”
DISCLAIMER* If your man is a southern boy, this cobbler may result in a marriage proposal. So please be careful with who you present this pie to. (this comes from a true story)
Ok so I know what some folks are gonna say “if it has a pie crust style crust then it’s a PEACH PIE & NOT A PEACH COBBLER!!” and my favorite line I hear “If you gotta use canned peaches you might as well not even make a peach cobbler!” Growing up in the south I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve heard these debates! What do I think? I say just hush and eat! Who cares right!
This old fashioned peach cobbler recipe is so easy and downright HEAVENLY!!!! The crust….omg….the crust! PROMISE ME YOU WILL MAKE THIS PIE CRUST! EVEN IF YOU SUCK AT MAKING PIE CRUST YOU MUST MAKE THIS ONE.
It is SUPER buttery tasting, golden, flaky & crisp on the top with a lil sprinkling of brown sugar, cinnamon and sugar and the underside is soft from absorbing all of that juicy peachy goodness. The bottom crust is gooey and….oh those peaches!! Yes those hated-on canned peaches really up their game in this recipe.
They are sweet and creamy and…PERFECTION!!!
Seriously, this is one of the best peach cobblers I have ever tasted. It is a combination of my uncles peach pie recipe, my grandmothers peach cobbler recipe and a lil bit of tweaking from yours truly. It has that signature old fashioned taste that I know will just make you feel like you are sitting out on the porch at your grandmothers house in the country, swatting flies from your face.
I hope that this peach cobbler will find it’s way into your recipe collection and that you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Old Fashioned Homemade Peach Cobbler
  • Buttery Deluxe Pie Crust: (make two pie crust)
  • 2½ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 stick COLD butter (chopped into pieces)
  • ½ cup COLD butter-flavored shortening
  • ½ cup ice cold water (if dough is still too dry, add in more cold water a tablespoon at a time)
  • Peach Filling
  • 2 (26 oz cans) sliced peaches ¾ cup of sugar
  • 6 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon pinch of nutmeg
  • Sugary Topping (for top crust. Can also sprinkle & press some into the bottom crust)
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. In a bowl add flour, sugar & salt. Give it a whisk to combine.
  3. Now cut in the butter & shortening until mixture resembles very large crumbs. (I use my hands for this. Don't overdue it. Mix just until combined)
  4. Add in the ice cold water and stir just until combined.
  5. Gather dough into a ball and flatten. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15-30 minutes or until cold.
  6. Time to make the peach filling!
  7. Pour 1 can of undrained peaches into a saucepan. Drain the other can and pour the peaches in. We only need one can of juice.
  8. Add in butter, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar.
  9. Stir over medium low heat just until sugar it dissolved and the liquid is syrupy. Set aside.
  10. Divide the chilled pie crust into 2 balls. One for the bottom crust and one for the top crust. make the bottom crust, roll out a ball on a flour surface until it is about ⅛ inch thick. Place it inside of a deep dish pie pan. Sprinkle on some sugar mixture if desired and press it into the crust.Step 3.) Spoon on the peaches. Pour on a little juice to your liking. ½ cup will do just fine for me.
  11. Now it's time to make the lattice top crust.Roll out the other ball of dough so that it is long enough to make strips that will reach from one end of the pie pan to the other. Cut out about 8-10 1-inch strips.
  12. Lay the strips in a crisscross pattern on top of the peaches and press the ends into the pie crust rim.
  13. Drop a few pieces of butter on the pie and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  14. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until golden.


  1. This recipe was a great success… For years I always was in search for a baggin slice of peach cobbler. I Tried this recipe for the first time and nailed it… right on point. No need to search no more. Thanks for helping me step my game up in the kitchen.

  2. This was absolutely the best peach cobbler I have ever tasted as well as made. The crust was so crispy and buttery and just down right delicious. I will keep this for future go to recipe. Thank you so much for sharing.

  3. I am a cook, and particularly a good baker. However, this is the best cobbler that I have ever made. I wanted to make a cobbler for an event at church. Since I had never used this recipe, I made two pies. I was going to taste one and if it was not good, I wasn’t going to take it to church. After tasting this cobbler, I was tempted to eat both pies and buy one for the church! If I could afford the calorie count They would never see that pie. Thank you so much!!!!!

  4. I like your site, and this recipe looks delicious. But this is definitely a peach pie. The difference between a pie and a cobbler is the bottom crust. Because your first layer of dough is on the bottom of the dish, you have a pie. Not criticizing, just informing. That’s all.

    Most cobblers have a top layer of crust only. Now, I actually do make a double-crust cobbler, but I spoon in a layer of fruit first, then I lay the first layer of dough, spoon in the remaining fruit, and lay the top layer of dough. Also, just fyi, the crisscross pattern of your top crust is a lattice, which is pronounced lat-is–just like the lattice upon which vines grow upwards (same pattern). Again, love your site!

  5. Hi Monique,
    I bought peaches in lite syrup since recipe doesn’t specify. When you get a minute, could you please let me know whether it matters? Thanks.

  6. THIS IS AMAZING!!!! I made this the other night for my boyfriend and he was literally speechless! The only thing he could say was ” This is your first time making peach cobbler?” LOL! Finally he was also able to say it was the best peach cobbler he ever had. I myself am not really a peach cobbler person but I ate just as much as he did! Thank you once again!

  7. Monique,

    I am not a cook… BY FAR!!! But I just wanted to let you know that I love what your doing…I love how simple & easy you make it to be. And you are a blessing to share your recipes w/t people like me. I have done the candied yam’s multiple times… Girl you messed up… Got folks thinking I can cook!!! Lol I am going to try this cobbler today!!! And I rated it a 5 already because based on my past experience with your recipes… I know it will be the Bomb!!! Wish me the best…

    Thanks in advance
    Monique J.

  8. Can I make this pie crust for a chicken potpie????

  9. Made this pie for my hubby, he loved it and took some to work for his co-workers. Now I have to make another for them, they raved about this peach cobbler. My very first made from scratch.

  10. Autumn Washington

    It came out DEELICIOUS! Only thing I would tweak is adding a teensy bit of cornstarch to the peach filling while in the pot to make it less runny and more gooey and thicker:D

  20. just made this finger lickin peach cobbler again. now that i am getting married i’m gonna try some of your recipes on my future hubby, thanks soo much for teaching me how to cook.

  21. Is The Peaches In The Can In Syrup Or Peach Juice? I Really Wanna Make This.

  22. tried out this recipe yesterday and mom loved it thank you so much.

  23. Good Lawd Almighty!

  24. OKAY!!!! I just made this cobbler… Added 1 1/2 cans of juice and a tad bit more nutmeg and sugar, and it was DELISH!

  25. hey i’m back to ask how do you make the bottom crust more firm and not so soft and doughy?

  26. omg! I have to say thank you for making this video and recipe. I am one of those women who can not cook worth anything but I followed your recipe by the book, i had to go shopping for all the ingredients though but i did it. I want to cry right now and i truly want to thank you for this. your a blessing. pls. make more videos on more recipes thank u and god bless.

  27. Hi Monique! I made this recipe for Thanksgiving and I am still hearing about it. I’m also getting requests to make it again. So, thank you!

  28. Hey lady~
    I just stumbled on your blog from Google and I CANNOT wait to try this recipe for me and *cough* notquitemymanyet’s family for Thanksgiving. I just wanted to make sure about the serving size, I’m assuming this was done with a 9 inch pan?

    I’m planning to make some HUGE servings of this. I’m seriously about to buy some lasagna pans and make about 4 of these suckas tomorrow night. lolz I am in no way playing around!

    Can’t wait to see my results~

  29. Monique, Words cannot express how easy it was to make this Peach Cobbler. My family absolutely loved especially my brother-in law who I love to bake and share with. I’m baking your Red Velvet this week for my hubby.

  30. All I can say is 2 thumbs up Monique! My family loved this Peach Cobbler. It was sooooo yummy to our tummy! They devoured this cobbler in one day. Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe.

  31. Made dinner tonight for the family and for dessert I made your famous peach cobbler and everyone loved it. Thanks so much for posting the recipe. Very simple, very easy and so very good! Thank you!

  32. Thank you soooooooo much for posting this recipe.It is the best and I do mean the best.My great aunt loved it now if that soul cooker say it’s great then that’s enough said.

  33. Hi Monique,

    I made the peach cobbler last weekend and it turned out ok for me. I’m a new cook and I’m trying to figure out where I went wrong. My pie pan wasn’t deep enough so I had a mess in my oven and I couldn’t get the dough to cook all the way through without burning the top crust. Should I have cooked it at a lower temp?

    If any ladies have any suggestions I am open.

    Thanks Monique I really enjoy watching your videos and I plan to try all your recipes until I am a cooking Diva!

  34. Ok Monique you shouldn’t cause people to gain weight from your recipes. I made the Cream Cheese Pound Cake and Peach Cobbler in the same night and honey I was licking the batter from the cake and waiting to tear into the peach cobbler. You are amazing at what you do. Keep it up!!!!!

  35. Finally found butter-flavored shortening; just made this pie and the crust is wonderful (although I used half and half instead of water). The cinnamon/sugar mixture really brings it out too.

    Expected more flavor from the peach mixture itself; It was just okay not spectacular. Next time will try some peach brandy in the filling and will drain both cans of peaches instead of one. Maybe flavor will be more concentrated that way.

    This is in no way a bad pie. Family licked pie plate :)

  36. Just a question for the diva! I cannot find butter flavored shortening in my area, just the regular kind; do you have some type of suggestion on how I can modify this recipe a bit so I can still get the butter flavor through the crust.

  37. I have been married coming up 37 years and this is the first fruit pie my man has asked for by name! I think I may have him for another 37 years!! Thanks for sharing this delicious peach cobbler! None other will do.

  38. Ok….I've made this peach cobbler 3 times so far….and it hasn't last one night!!!!! My entire family cannot believe I made it from scratch!!! Plus, my grandmother loved it!!!! Now that was such a compliment!!!!!

  39. I've been reading the reviews on your PC and I can't wait to try this recipe! I just know its gonna be mmm mmm good!!!!

  40. I made this for the Ladies' Night party I had last night and the girls TORE IT UP! I had a scraping left! Everyone asked for the recipe and couldn't believe I made it from SCRATCH! I was actually very proud. I kept saying "YES, DIVAS CAN COOK!!" Thanks so much for these recipes! They've saved me in a pinch :)

  41. Checking back in to tell you that the peach cobbler came out real good. Thanks for posting the recipe :-)

  42. I absolutely love your site. I just made your peach cobbler and it is in the oven now. It looks so delicious, I can't wait to taste it. I will definitely let you know how it turns out :-)

  43. Diva Diva Diva you are the ISH!!! This is hands down the best peach cobbler I have ever tasted (I'm talking about restaurants & family included) and never did I ever think I would be able to make it! But thanks to you, the recipe and video all helped tremendously! Heck my mom even asked for the crust recipe! So light and fluffy and just perfect! Thank you so very much for sharing…I am the new (self proclaimed) peach cobbler girl for family dinner parties!
    I am so loyal to you for this…I will always look here first for recipes!

  44. Chica all I can say is "THE BOMB" my family went hard on this cobbler and I ain't give them the how to make it. I love it! I will go to my grave with this one. It is so good I have made 4 already.

  45. I made this twice to perfect it. Second time just laid top crut over and rolled edges over to creat simple but elegant border, it also ensured pleantly of that delicious crust in each serving. Was a hit!!!! Secdond time i added 1/4 cup brown sugar, some ginger and more cinnamon. Thank you so much for sharing! I loved it!

  46. I made this cobbler. The filling I added some additional ingredients, but GIIIIRRRRRLLLLL, the crust was the straight up BOMB!!! I know they make some really good pre-made crusts, but HONEY HONEY HONEY, I followed your crust recipe to the T. OMGOSH! SO good, I almost slapped myself! Thank you for that! Love your website btw!

  47. You must, you must, you must make this crust!!! Outta sight!!!! everyone tore …. no toe it up!!!

  48. BAAABAAYYYY!!!! This is one hell of a pie crust!!! Excellent!!!

  49. I'm making it right now! Cross your fingers for me!

  50. OMG…..This recipe is so The BOMB..I've tried previously in the past to make a good homemade peach cobbler and none of them turned out to be as good as this one…The crust is so darn soft and buttery and the juices are to die for lol…I'm thinking about making another one just so I'll have an extra one on hand for thanksgiving..Thank you so much for this recipe, it's truly a BLESSING lol…Keep those recipes coming please

  51. and I forgot to ask, I notice there is a lot of sugar that is being used, but I really don't know when the last time I used white sugar…I use raw sugar (which is brown itself), will that make a difference and how can I make it work out without using white sugar, I don't mind using brown sugar? I also don't use regular milk(if needed) I use rice milk.

  52. I want to make one half this size (also the apple crisp), is it best to just cut each ingredient by half?

  53. Monique it was great! I tried calling you back yesterday but Im sure you will get back to me later about the juice of the cobbler. But anyway…loved it girl…thank you so much! DELISH!

  54. I am so grateful for this recipe. I've been searching high and low for a simple old fashioned peach cobbler recipe. I used your recipe and prepared this dish in about a little bit over an hour. It was EXCELLENT!!! My whole family loved it and I'm sure I'll be making another real soon!! Thanks again!!!

  55. when i go at supermarket i make sure to by peach because i know all the benefits this fruit contain like strengthens the inmune system, control the nervous system, avoid anaemia and is very good for the cholesterol. That is why i prefer to eat peach frequently.
