Cinnamon Biscuit Peach Cobbler

As a high school English teacher, I don't always have time to make the gourmet meals I would like. This recipe is a quick, simple treat that I made once and now have to bring to every gathering! If short on time, substitute refrigerated biscuits and sprinkle with the walnut and cinnamon mixture. —Fawna Eastman, Lewistown, Montana

    I made this for a Bus tour that came to our Ranch and they could not stop raving about how unique & delicious this was. Some said they will never be satisfied with "Plain" peach cobbler again.

    I tried this dessert for a group of friends and we all loved it. I used frozen peaches for convenience. I will definitely make again. I might add a few more biscuits. :-)

    I like this recipe because it's prettier than plain old cobbler. Sure it takes more work to make the biscuits but people love it because it's something different. It's always great to add flavorings if you prefer, too. I use canned peaches and it's just fine.

    This is good. But the peaches need more flavorings also. I added cinnamon and nutmeg and sugar to the peaches. I also added extra peaches. You can also make this with a frozen bread dough. Just let it thaw out, spread it out, add the filling and roll. Let it rise a bit and then slice. But, I like the idea of using the Cinnamon Grands. I will try that next. I used can , O"Sage Raggedy Ripe Freestone peaches. They are the best for anything you need peaches for. Hard to find, but when I do, I buy them all. Thanks for this recipe. I love peach cobbler and always looking for new ways to make it.

    Using a can of the large cinnamon rolls, I cut each roll into 4 pieces. I put the pieces in a rectangular glass dish that I had sprayed with cooking spray. I used two cans of sliced peaches in 100% fruit juice. The peaches were big so I cut them smaller. I also added about 1/4 cup of the juice. I baked it at 375 for 25 minutes. If it's not sweet enough for you, use the icing that comes with the biscuits to top it off.

    This was good, but I'm not sure it was worth the amount of work to make the topping. I usually make a butter cookie dough topping for my cobblers and it is at least as good as the cinnamon biscuits, but takes considerably less effort. Have to admit this looked way better though, so if you need something that shows beautifully, this is it.

    I saw on a different web. To use Rhodes Cinnamon Roll and canned Peach Pie Filling. Pour peaches in the pan that the rolls come in.Cut rolls in 1/4, place on top of filling. Bake 30 min. or until browned to suite. I would mix the rolls in amongst the peaches.
