Georgia's Best Peach Cobbler

Diane Hopson Smith


The Georgia peaches are coming in and yes I purchased a bag full of them to make this cobbler.

This is the way my mother made her cobblers. Very simple but oh so delish!

When I was a little girl, I remember us driving from Alabama over to Georgia to pick peaches. When we got home, mama would peel and slice them and freeze them for later use. And, we would have a cobbler that night.

There were 4 kids and our mom and dad, we could devour mama's cobbler in one sitting!

I've made a few minor changes to the way mama made hers. I think she would approve.

Hope you enjoy!

pinch tips: How to Melt and Soften Butter



1 Hr 10 Min


45 Min




6 to 8 large
fresh peaches, about 4 to 5 cups when sliced
1 Tbsp
lemon juice (mama didn't use the lemon juice)
1/2 c
1 stick
butter (1/2 cup) mama used margarine
3/4 c
3/4 c
all purpose flour
2 tsp
baking powder
3/4 c
1/2 tsp
cinnamon (optional)
2 tsp
sugar (optional)
vanilla ice cream

Directions Step-By-Step

Slice peaches, removing any briused or dark spot and of course the pits. Place in a bowl; drizzle lemon juice over peaches. I do this to keep the peaches from becoming dark. Sprinkle 1/2 cup sugar over peaches; stir gently to combine. Refrigerate until juices begin flow, atleast an hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a 9 X 13-inch baking dish. This will take about 5 to 7 minutes.
Whisk together 3/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup flour, salt and baking powder. Add milk and whisk until smooth.
Remove baking dish from oven and pour batter into hot dish over melted butter. Spoon peaches and juice from peaches onto top of the batter. Do not stir.
This step is optional and I don't recall my mother adding this to her cobblers but I love the taste of cinnamon and peaches together. Combine 1/2 tsp with 2 tsp of sugar; sprinkle over top of cobbler. Place in preheated oven and bake 45 to 50 minunutes until batter is cake like and top is a nice golden brown.
Remove from oven and serve with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream while the cobbler is still hot. Enjoy!
NOTE: You can use other fruits in place of peaches if you desire.
