Use thawed frozen peaches in a pinch, and feel free to use more or less sugar in the peaches, depending on tartness or to suit your own taste.


  • 4 cups sliced peaches
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ***Top Crust***
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup milk


Grease an 11x7 or 9-inch square baking dish. Heat oven to 450°.

Toss peach slices with the 3 tablespoons sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar. Cut in the shortening and butter until well combined. The mixture will look like coarse meal. Add milk and mix just until the dough holds together.

Put the peaches in the baking dish. Roll the dough out just a little bigger than the baking dish. Fold over and place on top of peaches; unfold. Crimp edges around the baking dish, prick several times with a fork. Put a baking sheet on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any drips.
Bake the cobbler for 10 minutes at 450°. Reduce heat to 350° and bake for about 25 to 30 minutes longer, until nicely browned and bubbly.
