Happy comfort food season y’all! Yes, this means we have officially made it to November 2020. This month I will be sharing some of our favorite Thanksgiving food recipes weekly. From peach cobbler to mac and cheese they’re all coming your way soon! The recipe I chose to kick this Thanksgiving season off was my famous skillet peach cobbler. I say famous because even people who don’t like peach cobbler tell me how much they enjoy my recipe. That’s a bragging right badge I wear proudly.Jump to Recipe
It’s taken me about 4 years to truly perfect this skillet peach cobbler recipe. A lot of other peach cobbler recipes have a plain crust on the top and bottom of the cobbler. One thing about me and my style of cooking is I expect flavor in every bite from every layer. The way this cobbler comes together is melt in your mouth perfection. I knew I had officially reached peach cobbler star status when my Grandma who isn’t a big peach cobbler fan not only complimented it but went back for seconds! If you’ve had the privilege of growing up with your Grandmother then you know how big of a deal this truly is. Nailed it!
Peach Cobber Tips:
- This cobbler does not need to be made in a skillet. A regular baking pan will work. The cast iron skillet I use gives it the crispy edges I prefer.
- If you like a very slight hint of salt in your sweet then use salted butter. And make sure it’s REAL butter. My go to brand is always Kerry Gold.
- Canned or fresh peaches both taste delicious. Canned peaches break up very easily whereas fresh peaches will hold together. It’s really a preference of how you like the texture of the peaches in your cobbler.
- Pair this skillet peach cobbler with your favorite brand of vanilla ice cream. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
Skillet Peach Cobbler
This skillet peach cobbler is the perfect baked dessert for the holiday season. Thanksgiving and Christmas favorites!
- 1.5 cups Flour
- 1 cup White Sugar
- 1 cup Milk
- 8 Tbsp. Butter melted
- 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
- 2 15 oz. Canned Peaches *or 6-8 fresh peaches peeled and sliced*
- 1/4 cup Dark Brown Sugar
- 1/4 cup White Sugar
- 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
- 1 tsp. Honey
- 2 tsp. Lemon Juice
- 2 tsp. Cornstarch
- 1 cup Flour
- 1/4 cup White Sugar
- 1/4 cup Light Brown Sugar
- 1 tsp. Baking Powder
- 1/4 tsp. Salt
- 6 Tbsp. Melted Butter *salted or unsalted works. I like salted for a contrast*
- 1/4 cup Hot Water *microwave for 30 seconds
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
Melt 8 tablespoons of butter in the microwave and pour it in the cast iron skillet (or 13×9 baking dish)
Stir your flour, sugar, milk, and cinnamon together until smooth. Pour this on top of your melted butter in the cast iron skillet. No need to stir. Set this to the side.
In another bowl combine the peaches, cinnamon, dark brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey and cornstarch. Lightly mix to combine.
Pour the peach mixture evenly over the bottom crust and butter in the skillet. Set this to the side.
Rinse out and dry the bowl the peaches were in. Add the flour, white sugar, light brown sugar, baking powder, salt, melted butter and hot water to the bowl. Mix until it's like a paste. Don't over mix.
Drop spoonfuls of the top crust mixture evenly on top of the peaches and use the cooking spoon to lightly spread the drops of mixture around to completely cover the peaches as much as possible.
Bake uncovered for 30-45 minutes or until the top crust is golden brown.
Let it sit for 10 minutes after removing it from the oven, cut a slice, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and ENJOY!
