If you’re having company and you want to give them that old down home feeling of comfort when they enter your home, then you want this baking in the oven. If you’re trying to sell your home, you want this baking in the oven. Your visitor (s) will think they have walked into grandmas kitchen for sure. I wish I could can this aroma so I could spray it in my home every day….every minute! Anyway, this is an easy cobbler to make because you use refrigerated rolled pie crust, the kind that is sold two to a box that you buy at the store. You can certainly make your own pie crust, but the kind you buy is just as good. Actually pie crust is very easy to make, so…it’s entirely up to you as to what kind you prefer.
So, with that being said, there are a lot of southern cooks who do not think this is a true southern cobbler, they think it has to be a batter that you pour over the fruit, or the kind you make that has the batter on the bottom that cooks up between the fruit. I really like all versions really, but I think a true cobbler has the crust on the bottom and the lattice crust on top, and crust in the middle! When I saw this recipe on a blog recently I was happy to have found it. This is how my grandmother used to make cobblers. I was very young when she passed, but I do remember the lattice crust on top. The cobbler I loved best was blackberry cobbler, but the peach cobbler is second on my list most loved cobblers. I hope you enjoy this cobbler as much as I do because it’s pretty awesome!
Happy Cobbler Baking!
6 pounds fresh or frozen peaches; peeled and sliced (about 10 cups_
1 cups sugar or splenda
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon (I add a little more, I love cinnamon)
1 teaspoon nutmeg (I use fresh grated nutmeg, but the kind you buy in the bottle is good also)
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract (I use homemade vanilla, but the bottle is good also)
1/2 stick butter
3 refrigerated rolled pie crust
For the crust on top:
1 and 1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 375F. Mix sugar with flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. In a large post add peaches and sugar mixture and let sit until the sugar begins to mix with the peaches and creates a light syrup (approx 10 minutes).
2. Place pot on the stove over low heat and bring to a boil, then cook until mixture begins to thicken, about 10 to 12 minutes, or until peaches are tender.
3. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Stir to mix butter into the peaches. Lightly spray the bottom of a 9 x 13 x 2 inch baking dish, then place one pie crust into the dish, shaped to fit the dish. Top the crust with 1/2 of the peaches. Next lay the second crust on top that you have shaped to fit the dish. Place in preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes, until curst becomes lightly browned. Remove from the oven and add remaining peaches. Roll out the last crust and cut into strips. Place over peaches in a lattice design. Mix remaining sugar and cinnamon mixture and sprinkle on top the lattice crust.
Return to oven and bake for an additional 20 to 30 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Sit back and enjoy!
This sounds SO delicious; peach cobbler is my favorite dessert.. Do you think I could pre-bake the bottom two crusts?
This recipe is what I’ll use for my sister Lilli Anne’s February birthday.
Sorry neicie to be so long in getting back to you, by now you’ve probably already made this for your sister’s birthday this month! I’ve never pre-baked the crust on this cobbler so I don’t know how it would work. The thing about a cobbler is the crust is gooey and soft, but having it more crisp might work. If you pre-baked your crust, let me know how it turned out for you when you have time. I have not had time to update my blog is quite sometime now, but hope to get back to blogging soon! Have a great day and thanks for your message!
You can experiment any way you like to make it your own. When I make mine, I pre-bake the bottom crust. I also pre-bake crust strips to put in the middle for a triple crust cobbler, then top with the unbaked crust before putting the whole thing in the oven to bake.
So true Neicie, for this recipe, it depends on if you like a more gooey crust in the middle or a more firm crust, I personally like a more gooey crust . I think you can made any recipe your own by changing something in the recipe. Thanks for your message!
This turned out amazing! Never thought to pre bake the crust. Thanks for publishing this.
Thank you Jasmine for letting me know how it turned out for you!
would like to try this recipe, but am unable to print the recipe.
Have you tried to right click and then hit copy and paste to Word or Notepad?
My grandma made a double crust, & like you all I could find was batter cobblers, thank you for your post will be making soon
I hope it turned out okay for you, someone else said it was dry. I think if your peaches do not have enough juice this could happen. I prefer a two crust cobber instead of drop batter cobblers, but that’s a preference. Hope it worked out for you.
I tried this and it was vey dry. Not gooey at all. What could I have done wrong. I followed the recipe verbatim.
The only thing I think it could be is just not enough juice in your peaches. It’s so hard to know for sure, but if the peaches have little juice, this could be part of the problem…not sure.
Rosetta thank you for the recipe, my grandma also made her Peach Cobbler with the 2 crust ( lattice on top) I cant wait to try this recipe. I actually have tried a couple others and just didn’t turn out.
I look forward to trying yours. My grandma passed away when I was 10 so wasn’t able to get her recipes. She made the best homemade bread.
Donna, I truly hope this turned out good for you because we all have our expectations with recipes especially when it comes to recipes our loved ones made when we were young. I’m so sorry you were not able to get her recipes as I’m sure they were very special to you. I will try and post a really good recipe for Amish White bread you may really like and it’s not too hard to make. I sell it at a farmer’s market and everyone loves it!
This is my favorite recipe my family loves it . I always prebake the crust and it turns out perfect.
Sounds very good will make for fourth of July
Hope it turned out great for you Lana!
This is how my Granny used to make cobblers and what I grew up on. Her crusts were what I strive for every time I make pie or cobblers. Although I like the batter cobblers that are so popular, this will always be a true cobbler to me. Thank you for sharing!

Can I use canned peach pie filling for this recipe, instead of making it homemade? Or will it turn out dry?
Sharon, I’m not sure really. Sorry to not get back with you before now, I have not had time to do updates to this group. Hopefully I’ll be able to do a few updates again soon.
What do you think about just a crust on top and one on the bottom and no lattice
That would work also!
