This peach cobbler is the perfect dessert for any season.

Two quintessentially Southern eats―peaches and biscuits―come together in this easy cobbler recipe. A rolled-out biscuit-dough crust covers a sweet filling made from canned peaches, meaning you can enjoy this treat long past peach season.

Serve this delicious dessert warm with ice cream or a drizzle of heavy cream.


  • For Filling:
  • 1 large can (29 ounces) peaches in syrup
  • 1/2 cup sugar (granulated)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • For Biscuit Crust:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons ​cinnamon sugar

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to 425 F.

  2. Drain the peaches, reserving the liquid.

  3. Combine the sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Stir in the reserved peach liquid and bring it to a boil over medium heat. Boil the syrup for about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the lemon juice and add the peaches. Set it aside to cool while you prepare the biscuit dough.

  4. Mix the flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl; cut in the shortening with a pastry blender or two knives. Add milk gradually to make a soft dough. Turn it out onto a floured surface and roll the dough to fit the baking dish.

  5. Spoon the peach mixture into a buttered pie or baking dish, dotting the top with the pieces of butter. Sprinkle it with the cinnamon sugar.

  6. Arrange the dough on top of the peach filling and crimp the edges. 

  7. Bake the cobbler for 16 to 20 minutes, or until the top turns golden. Cool for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.
