Contest-Winning Peach Cobbler Recipe
- 2 cans (29 ounces each) sliced peaches
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 6 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, optional
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- BUTTERSCOTCH SAUCE:
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- Vanilla ice cream, optional
- 1. Drain peaches, reserving 1/2 cup syrup for the sauce. In a large bowl, combine peaches, brown sugar, tapioca, cinnamon if desired, lemon juice and vanilla. Transfer to an ungreased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Let stand for 15 minutes.
- 2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in eggs. Drop by spoonfuls onto peach mixture; spread evenly. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until filling is bubbly and a toothpick inserted in topping comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes.
- 3. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, flour, salt, butter and reserved peach syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Remove from the heat; add lemon juice. Serve with cobbler and ice cream if desired. Yield: 10-12 servings.
Reviews for Contest-Winning Peach Cobbler
"This is soooo good! Made without the butterscotch sauce and topped with vanilla ice cream. the topping is cake-like"
"When I read "butterscotch" I had to give it a try! No doubt it was a contest winner! Delicious!"
"I did not change anything excellent"
"It was interesting to read the reviews for my peach cobbler. I'm so glad most of you loved it. If you had problems with the crust, rest assured, I did a few times too. It seemed to happen when the batter was too thick, and didn't spread easily. I have never used frozen peaches, but It could certainly be done."
"Turned out delicious. We loved it without the topping."
"Just came out of the the oven. I double the topping, made the sauce and had vanilla ice cream with it. I have five children and they loved it."
"This was really good. Loved the sauce. My husband liked it too but he likes another peach dessert that I make in the microwave alot better. I'd probably make this again though because I usually have all the ingredients on hand."
"Best cobbler we have ever eaten"
"It was very good. I didn't get a cake-like consistency from the topping, though. It was a hard shell with unbaked topping underneath. Will try it again to see if I did something wrong."
"This was AWESOME and easy to make! Thank you my fellow Alaskan for sharing this recipe. We love it here in Sitka. The topping was easy and really added to the flavor. I took it to a dinner party with 10 people and they all agreed the topping put it over the top. I took home an empty dish, which is the best compliment there is!"
"The only reason I would make this recipe again is to try to figure out if I did something wrong the first time."
"This is THE BEST cobbler I have made! My husband said he didn't like peach desserts. We told him he was missing out. There was one piece left and he decided to try it... He said I should have made him have try it earlier because it was awesome. Don't leave anything out as some of the reviews say, the sauce really makes it complete. In the keeper box"
"Amazing! Made it last time without the butterscotch topping since it made it too sweet"
"Last year, I made this and remembered that I needed to double the topping portion of this recipe. It must have changed since I made it last time, because I certainly didn't need to double the topping. I also don't make the butterscotch topping, this is delicious on its own. :)"
"I did not know that my husband used to hate peach cobbler because he loved this recipe :)"
"The 2 large cans are enough for 8 people."
"This was a fabulous recipe! We will make it again, exactly the same!"
"Very simple. Served warm with ice cream. My family loved it. Note: My girls told me not to omit the butterscotch topping next time! (A baked it in a 9x9 pan). Will fold in fresh/frozen blueberries next time....."
"I modified this recipe for a cook-off I was in. I used 1 can of peaches and 1 can of blueberry pie filling. I also added 1 cup of chopped pecans. Those were my only changes. I won First Place hands down! After the awards, per the Cook Off Marshall, the cobbler never left the First Place position on the table out of Top Ten slot!"
"My company loved it and wanted the recipe."
"So delicious and so easy to make. I almost skipped the butterscotch sauce, but I'm so glad I decided to make it. It really adds something special!"
"The warm butterscotch sauce makes this peach cobbler recipe stand out from most others. I love cobblers, especially peach, so I'll be making this one again!cwbuff"
"My daughter told me it was the best dessert I had ever made!"
"This sure sounds very good, and I will try it soonsnookums"
"use half of the lemon juice in sauce"
"Just delicious. I love this recipe!"
"This is delicious and easy to make. The butterscotch sauce is really good and worth the extra step."
"I could not believe how delicious this Peach Cobbler is!!!! I did not add the tapioca because I did not have it available and did not make the sauce. It was still the best peach cobbler I have ever had!!"
"I decided to take a little shortcut and use butterscotch ice cream syrup topping that they sell at the supermarket. YUM!"
"Would it be a disaster to use frozen peaches? We really don't like canned peaches."
"I did not make the sauce either...but it was still GREAT! I put mine in a 9X13 pan and because there was so much empty space, put a apple crisp topping on as well as Topping and it was Delicious...I also stirred the 1/2 cup of the reserved liquid into the peaches!"
"I did not make the butterscotch sauce. Cook time was 60-65 mins for my oven. I used Sugar Free Can Peaches..it was so good and still sweet enough. Thanks for this recipe! I wil be making this again. I just have to double it."
"Works great if you skip the butterscotch sauce and simply use store-bought caramel sauce."
"I make this all of the time and it comes out great! I usually don't make the butterscotch sauce."
