Southern Peach Cobbler
Yield: 10-12 servings
  • 10 ripe peaches- peeled and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch or flour
  • Biscuit Dough:
  • 2 cups flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar, plus 1½ tablespoons for sprinkling (raw sugar would be great for this too)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 stick butter, cubed and chilled
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg white, for washing
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large 13x9 baking dish, combine the peaches, brown sugar, cinnamon, and corn starch. Toss gently to combine.
  3. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Cut in the butter with a fork, pastry blender or 2 knives until the dough resembles sand. Slowly add the buttermilk, stirring with a wooden spoon until the dough comes together. (You may not use all of the buttermilk.) With floured hands gently knead the dough together a bit until it comes together but is still sticky.
  4. Scoop the dough into 4 inch (or so) biscuits and arrange over the peaches using your floured hands to flatten slightly if needed. Use the egg white as a wash, brushing on top of dough. Sprinkle the 1½-tablespoons of sugar on top. Cook the cobbler until the top is golden brown, about 40 minutes.
  5. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream!
