Peach Cobbler with Cinnamon-Swirl Biscuits

peach cobbler01
OK, since I posted the pictures for this recipe I made last weekend, I’ve had a few requests for the recipe! So here it is! This was taken from the cookbook “Easy Everyday Cooking” by Better Homes and Gardens. LOVE this cookbook, by the way!


1 cup all purpose flour

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup butter

1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts

3 tablespoons brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon butter, melted

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

4 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel (I didn’t have this and it was amazing without it)

6 cups sliced peeled peaches OR 6 cups frozen unsweetened peach slices

2/3 cup water


For biscuits, in a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.

With a pastry blender, cut in 1/4 cup butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center. Add milk all at once. Using a fork, stir just until dough forms a ball.

On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently for 10 to 12 strokes. Roll or pat dough into a 12×6-inch rectangle. Combine walnuts, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, and cinnamon. Brush dough with melted butter and sprinkle with nut mixture. Starting from a short side, roll up jelly-roll style. Seal edge. Cut into six 1-inch slices. Set aside.

For filling, in a large saucepan stir together 2/3 cup brown sugar, cornstarch, and lemon peel. Add peaches and water. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.

Pour the hot filling into an ungreased 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Arrange the biscuit slices, cut sides down, on hot filling. Bake in a 375 degree oven about 25 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.

Makes 6 servings.

Easy peasy! I have more peaches I need to use and, although the thought of trying something else sounds good, this was SO good that I am thinking I’ll do this again (except I’ll do more cinnamon rolls! You know, so it’s even worse for my thighs…).



  1. If I had peaches, I'd definitely make this! I wonder how it would work with apples… πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks for this recipe. I started drooling when I saw the picture! Thanks for asking about the scavenger hunt..we did do it with the kids, there were about 25 kids under age 9, and they had a blast! I was so busy organizing them and making sure everyone had what they needed I forgot all about taking pictures! The very last item on their list was “a song”. As each of them brought me their loot bag I asked them to sing me a song. That was the best. Lots of fun and happy faces!

  3. That looks gorgeous! Sadly, the last couple of peaches I've bought have been really mealy so we might be out of season already.

    I should make something like this! yum!

  5. I'm so going to make this this weekend πŸ™‚

  6. Peaches are my absolute favorite! This looks delish!
