Welcome to Smokin and Grillin wit A.B’s, best Peach Cobbler Ever, folks! Today, we’re diving headfirst into a sweet and scrumptious journey that’ll have your taste buds dancing – homemade peach cobbler. Yep, it’s your boy A.B., and you know I’m all about keeping it simple in the kitchen. We’re about to bust the myth that making amazing desserts is complicated. You don’t need to drop big bucks or hire a fancy chef – I got you covered with a peach cobbler that’s as easy as pie (pun intended).
So, grab your apron, set that oven to 350 degrees, and let’s get into it. Here’s how we whip up a delectable homemade peach cobbler that’ll have your crew hollering for seconds!
Step 1: Roundin’ Up Them Ingredients
First things first, let’s gather up those ingredients:
- Four cans of 15.6-ounce sliced peaches.
- A cup of white granulated sugar (we’ll use this in two parts).
- A cup of brown sugar (yep, we’ll divide it in two).
- A teaspoon of ground cinnamon (but you know, you can add more if you’re feeling extra spicy).
- A teaspoon of ground nutmeg.
- Two store-bought ready-made pie crusts.
- Three tablespoons of good ol’ butter.
Step 2: Cookin’ Up the Peachy Goodness
- Get them cans of sliced peaches cracked open and toss ’em into a pot.
- Now, with that white sugar, start off by putting in half of it (that’s half a cup), just to keep it clump-free. Give it a good mix, then add the rest.
- Time to do the same routine with the brown sugar – half in first, then the other half. Mix it all up till it’s a party in that pot.
- Sprinkle in your ground cinnamon and nutmeg – about a teaspoon each. But hey, you can adjust these to your liking. We want this cobbler to have that perfect blend of flavors.
- Pop your pot onto the stove, somewhere between medium and low heat. Let that peachy goodness simmer for about 15 – 20 minutes, stirring every now and then.
- Once your filling is cooked, add your cornstarch slurry to the filling while it is hot to thicken your filling.
Step 3: Crust Action
- Grab your baking dish; it could be a Pyrex or a trusty cobbler pan. Give it a good spritz with cooking spray – that’s gonna keep your crust from sticking.
- Unroll the first pie crust and gently lay it into the pan, stretching it to cover as much as you can. Don’t stress if it doesn’t reach all the way.
- Unroll the second pie crust and, guess what? Repeat the same move. Overlap the strips, and that’s how you get that charming lattice pattern (see above photo).
Step 4: Butter It Up
Melt down those three tablespoons of butter. Get a brush and paint that buttery goodness generously over your pie crust strips. This is the secret sauce – it’ll make those strips stick together and create that mouthwatering lattice effect.
Step 5: Bringing It All Together and Baking
- Alright, once you’ve doused those crust strips in butter, it’s time to pour in that heavenly peach filling. Get ready for the aroma – it’s pure magic!
- Slide your cobbler into the preheated oven at 350 degrees. It’s gonna need about an hour and 15 minutes in there. Keep an eye on it; you’re looking for that gorgeous golden brown crust.
Step 6: The Grand Finale – Enjoy!
As you pull your masterpiece out of the oven, you’re gonna be hit by that incredible smell. Let it cool for a bit, and then it’s time to serve it up. Whether you like it warm or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, this cobbler is the ultimate dessert to cap off a meal or celebrate any occasion.
What’s even better? You can brag about this being your homemade creation, even if you took a few shortcuts like using store-bought crusts. Your family and friends will be blown away!

Best Peach Cobbler Ever!
Step 1: Preparing the Peach Filling
- Begin by opening the four cans of sliced peaches and draining any excess juice. Place the peaches in a large mixing bowl.
- Add half of the white granulated sugar (1/2 cup) to the peaches and mix well to prevent clumping. Afterward, add the remaining sugar and continue to mix until it’s evenly combined.
- Repeat the same process with the brown sugar, adding half initially and then the rest. Ensure that both types of sugar are fully integrated with the peaches.
- Sprinkle in the ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg. Adjust the amounts to your personal taste. Mix all the spices into the peach mixture.
- Transfer the peach filling to a pot and place it on the stove over medium-low heat. Allow it to simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- After your filling starts to boil. Add a corn starch slurry (3 tbsp. of corn starch and 3 tbsp. cold water mixed together) to thicken your filling.
Step 2: Preparing the Pie Crust
- Take your chosen baking dish, whether it’s a Pyrex or a cobbler pan, and generously grease it with cooking spray. This will prevent the crust from sticking.
- Unroll the first store-bought pie crust and gently place it into the pan, stretching it to cover as much as possible. It’s alright if it doesn’t reach all the way; we’ll address that soon.
- Unroll the second pie crust and repeat the process, overlapping the strips to create a lattice pattern.
Step 3: Brushing with Butter
- Melt the 3 tablespoons of butter and use a pastry brush to coat all the exposed pie crust strips generously. This step will enhance the flavor and help the strips meld together during baking, forming a beautiful lattice.
Step 4: Assembly and Baking
- Once the butter is brushed on the pie crust, it’s time to pour the aromatic peach filling into the prepared crust.
- Place your cobbler in the preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake it for approximately 1 hour, or until the crust turns a glorious golden brown.
