Fresh Nectarine Cinnamon Cobbler

Kathie Carr


Peach fuzz makes my asthma go crazy so I use nectarines. This recipe takes a bit more time than many posted here but I think its well worth the effort. Its not hard at all.

My Mom made these biscuit style cinnamon rolls often and during peach and nectarine season they just naturally went on top of the fresh cobbler. They can also be baked on their own and topped with powdered sugar glaze.

How to Make Fresh Nectarine Cinnamon Cobbler


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Mix together flour, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Cut in cold butter with a fork just until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk just until blended. Do not over-mix.

    Knead dough on a floured board briefly- just 10 times or so. Pat dough out into a 12 inch square. Brush with melted butter. Set aside briefly.
  2. Stir together ingrdients for cinnamon filling. Spread evenly over buttered dough, leaving a 1/2 inch margin at the edges with no filling. Roll up like a jelly roll. Seal edges by pinching with your fingers. Set aside in refrigerator while making fruit.
  3. Make fruit by combining 1 cup brown sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice. Gradually stir in water. Stir until blended well. Add nectarines or peaches. In a large saucepan bring this mixtue to a boil and cook, stirring, until mixture thickens (about 3-5 minutes). Pour into a buttered 9 by 13 inch baking pan.
  4. Remove dough from refrigerator. With a sharp knife cut biscuit dough into 12 equal slices or biscuits. Place on top of nectarines.

    Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until biscuits are nicely browned and fruit is bubbly.

    Great served warm with ice cream.
