Bottom Crust

  • 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

Top Crust

  • 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


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

  2. Melt 8 tablespoons of butter in the microwave and pour it in the cast iron skillet (or 13x9 baking dish)

  3. 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.

  4. In another bowl combine the peaches, cinnamon, dark brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey and cornstarch. Lightly mix to combine.

  5. Pour the peach mixture evenly over the bottom crust and butter in the skillet. Set this to the side.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Bake uncovered for 30-45 minutes or until the top crust is golden brown.

  9. Let it sit for 10 minutes after removing it from the oven, cut a slice, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and ENJOY!
