If you don't have time to peel and pit fresh peaches or if they aren't in season, make this cobbler with canned peaches. The canned peaches with liquid make a delicious filling for the cobbler, and the simple biscuit-like topping bakes to a perfect golden brown.


  • 1 (29-ounce) large can sliced peaches (in light syrup)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (light or dark, packed)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Juice of 1 lemon (or about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup/4 1/2 ounces all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter (chilled)
  • 1/3 cup milk

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 400 F.

  2. Butter a 1-quart to 1 1/2-quart baking dish.

  3. Place a strainer over a bowl and drain the peaches, reserving the syrup.

  4. Arrange peach slices in the prepared baking dish.

  5. Measure 1 cup of the syrup into a small saucepan; blend in the sugars, lemon juice, spices, salt, 1 tablespoon of butter, and cornstarch. Place the saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil; simmer, stirring, until thickened and clear, about 4 to 5 minutes. Pour the hot mixture over the peaches.

  6. Place the peach filling in the oven while preparing the topping.

  7. Sift together the flour, baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 2 teaspoons sugar.

  8. Cut in the 1/4 cup of chilled butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the milk and stir until a stiff dough is formed.

  9. Drop the dough by spoonfuls onto the hot peach filling. Return the cobbler to the oven and bake until topping is browned, ​or about 20 minutes.

  10. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
