Southern Peach Cobbler

Follow our easy, step-by-step, recipe to learn how to make this delicious Peach Cobbler. It’s an old Southern favorite.

A true Southern favorite dessert. Peach Cobbler.

There is an area about 60 miles North-West of where I live that is well known for it’s peach orchards. They produce some beautiful peaches each year, but we just can’t seem to grow them right around where I live. The soil is just not right here for growing them it seems.

I haven’t been able to get to the farmers market to purchase any of the local fresh peaches this year, but I did have a hankering for a peach cobble recently, so I resorted to using frozen peaches instead. It still turned out great. Smile.

This is our second recipe for peach cobbler here on Taste of Southern. A few years back, I used a recipe one of my friends had given me and made her Peach Delight Cobbler. That one has a crumb type topping whereas this one does not. Both will be good recipes to try, just depends on what you like.

This is more of the traditional and old Southern favorite, so I figured if I was going to make it, I might as well take the photos and post it all here on Taste of Southern. I hope you’ll enjoy it should you decide to try it. And, if you can use fresh peaches, it will be even better.

The sweetness of the cobbler will depend a lot on just how sweet your peaches are. I prefer the yellow freestone variety when I can find them as they are a bit easier to work with for me.
