Peach

I was searching for a peach cobbler recipe that reminded me of the yummy dessert I ate as a young girl in Southeast Missouri. No shortcuts here. Fresh peaches and homemade crust...but worth every minute! Absolutely delicious served warm with vanilla ice cream! Never any leftovers with this dessert!

Okay, after reading about a hundred posts on this recipe, I've taken all the suggestions and put them together to make an excellent Peach Cobbler that was not runny at all. The filling was smooth and luscious! Here's the list: 12-13 peaches (about 4 lbs. I found that 3lbs wasn't enough), 1/2c brown sugar, 1/2c white sugar, 1/4c lemon juice, 1/4c orange juice, 3.5 T cornstarch, 2 tsp vanilla, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 1/2 crust recipe (use only 1 egg and 1/4 c water), and butter instead of shortening. After baking I put it under the broiler for a minute to brown it up a bit. Although the crust/topping was delicious, I might try a more traditional crumb topping next time with flour, oats, butter and brown sugar. I think the ideal combination would be using one recipe of the crust for the bottom, then putting the crumb topping on the top. Both are delicious, it's a matter of what your taste is.

I picked this recipe because it had a five star rating. My husband is a big peach cobbler fan and I wanted to really wow him. I was not happy with the way this turned out. It was too runny/watery/liquid the crust reminds me more of a pie and it was too sweet for my taste.

EXCELLENT

I thought this recipe was EXCELLENT. I did make a few changes after reading several of the reviews. I did double the crust recipe-it was a bit much-I could have done just fine with a batch and a half. I used a 1/2 cup of shortening and the remaining amount was butter. I used approxiamtely 4lbs of peaches-as far as I'm concerned, you can never use enough fruit in pies. I used 1/4c lemon juice and 1/4 c orange juice. I used 4 tablespoons of cornstarch, one teaspoon of vanilla and a sprinkle of ginger. I also used 1/2 cup of white sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar as I used fresh fruit that was sweet enough. I also made the fancy lattice work on the top as suggested by French Blue-it came out gorgeous. I topped mine with some whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. The crust was flakey and delicious and the filling was to die for.....take a look at my picture...and try this recipe! Read More (Source: www.allrecipes.com)

This is absolutely great. I've always been a double crust cobbler girl, but it's hard to find that. I've never made a cobbler before although I consider myself an excellent cook and baker. I was skeptical about the orange juice and fully intended to follow the crust recipe and combine it with another peach filling recipe. I'm so glad I didn't. This was absolutely great!!! I kept raving about it. My husband loved it too. I will be making this again and again. I did substitute the shortening for butter. I don't stock shortening. And I didn't use two sticks. It was more like 1 1/2 sticks for the cobbler. Baking the bottom crust first made this the perfect cobbler. I'll be using this crust for all future cobblers. I'm making blueberry next (after I make the peach again). Thanks for a great cobbler. I didn't do the lattice top either. I just cut 1 1/2 inch long strips and placed over the top of the peaches. I just couldn't see myself doing a lattice top. Read More (Source: www.allrecipes.com)

Great dessert. Instead of doing the lattice on top of the hot peaches, dust the bottom side of a cookie sheet and do it there. Then you can just slide it on top of the fruit and finish it off. This is a great trick with pies, too. Read More (Source: www.allrecipes.com)

Wow...scrumptious! This is really more like a giant peach pie than a traditional cobbler -- and that is more than fine with me since I prefer pie crust to spongy cobbler crust. The crust here...oh my goodness...to die for! I made 1-1/2 times the crust recipe, and it was just the right amount to split evenly between bottom and top layers. I took a cue from another reviewer's (FrenchBlue) photo. She placed the strips atop the pie in three alternating diagonal layers. Looks so beautiful that way! I don't think I would've had enough dough to do that with a single recipe. I measured the peaches in the scale at the grocery store and bought 3.75 lbs. Ended up being just the right amount. It took 9 med-large peaches to reach that weight. I used the full 1/4 c. lemon juice but reduced the OJ to 1/4 c. as well. Hubby and I both thought the full amount, while it probably would have been good, might've overpowered the delicious peach flavor we were going for. I just made up the difference in water. Also added 2-1/2 TBS cornstarch. Filling was juicy without being runny. Thank you so much for this fabulous recipe...we loved it! :-) Read More (Source: www.allrecipes.com)

I am not a baker and have never successfully made my own dough! This recipe was excellent. I served it to my husband and his eyes lit up! He requested this, along with other recipes from this site, for father's day. I also used canned peaches (drained and washed) and also added some extra cinnamon, brown sugar and vanilla (to suit my family's tastes). I also used a crumb topping (made with yellow cake mix and butter). The first time I made it I did the lattice topping. As with all the other reviews, I suggest making some extra dough. Otherwise, this recipe was absolutely excellent. Try it you won't regret it... Read More (Source: www.allrecipes.com)
