Ingredients:

  • 40 oz canned Peaches
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon Almond Extract (Optional)
  • 1⁄2 tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons Corn Starch
  • 1 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • 1⁄2 stick Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Water
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice

Cobbler Topping:

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1⁄2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1⁄2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 stick Butter
  • 1⁄4 cup Boiling Hot Water
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon Salt
  • 3 tablespoons Granulated Sugar

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Prepare Baking Dish:
    • Spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick spray.
  3. Prepare Peach Mixture:
    • In the prepared dish, combine peaches, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla extract, almond extract (if using), cinnamon, nutmeg, corn starch, cream of tartar, butter, water, and lemon juice.
    • Mix until well combined.
  4. Bake Peach Mixture:
    • Cover the dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  5. Prepare Cobbler Topping:
    • While the peaches are baking, combine flour, both sugars, baking powder, salt, and 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon.
    • Work the cold stick of butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal or crumbles.
    • Add the hot water and stir until just combined. The cobbler topping should have a drop biscuit-like texture.
  6. Assemble and Bake:
    • Remove the peaches from the oven and spoon the cobbler dough mixture over them. Make each dough droplet about the size of a golf ball, leaving a small space between each one to ensure even cooking.
    • The peaches will not be fully covered. Combine sugar and the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon, then sprinkle the mixture over the dough.
    • Place the dish back in the oven, uncovered, and bake for an additional 30-45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
  7. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Allow the cobbler to cool slightly before serving.
    • Serve warm, and enjoy the delightful combination of sweet, spiced peaches and the golden, tender cobbler topping.

Expert Tips and Tricks:

  • Experiment with different spices for a personalized touch, such as a hint of cardamom or a dash of ginger.
  • For a gluten-free option, substitute almond or coconut flour for the regular flour.
  • Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra indulgent treat.

Variations:

  1. Berry Bliss: Mix in blueberries or raspberries for a burst of berry goodness.
  2. Tropical Twist: Add diced mango or pineapple for a taste of the tropics.
  3. Bourbon Peach Cobbler: Infuse a splash of bourbon into the peach mixture for a sophisticated flavor.
  4. Pecan Paradise: Sprinkle chopped pecans over the cobbler topping for added crunch.
  5. Lemon Lovers: Zest a lemon into the cobbler topping for a citrusy kick.
  6. Ginger Peach Delight: Incorporate finely grated fresh ginger for a warm and spicy note.
  7. Apple Cinnamon Infusion: Combine apples with the peaches for a delightful fall twist.
  8. Maple-Pecan Streusel: Replace the standard cobbler topping with a maple-pecan streusel.
  9. Honey Drizzle: Finish with a drizzle of honey over the warm cobbler for natural sweetness.
  10. Lavender Peach Cobbler: Infuse culinary lavender into the peach mixture for a subtle floral essence.
