  • 8 fresh peaches – peeled and sliced into wedges
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
  • ¼ cup boiling water
  • 3 Tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Toss to combine well.
  • Pour peaches into 2-quart baking dish and bake for 10 minutes at 425.
  • While peaches are baking, combine in another large mixing bowl the flour, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend butter pieces in well using a pastry blender or fork until the mixture looks like coarse bread crumbs. Stir in water until combined, but do not overmix. Roll mixture out on a floured countertop or cutting board until it’s about 1/4 inch thick and approximately the same size as your baking dish.
  • Remove peaches from oven. Lift pastry carefully and lay over peaches.
  • Combine 3 Tbsp white sugar and 1 tsp ground cinnamon and sprinkle over the cobbler.
  • Return to oven and bake until the topping is golden brown, about 30 minutes.


It’s ok if your pastry breaks a little or doesn’t fit perfectly over your peaches. You can stretch it a little or tuck it in here and there. Part of the charm of a cobbler is its rustic simplicity!
