Colorado Peach Cobbler Recipe

My husband and I have lived on our ranch/wheat farm for over 40 years. I've served this dessert for family, hired help and special guests many times. I've used other fruits that are in season, but we like peaches best.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:8-10 servings


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 cups sliced peeled fresh peaches
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cold butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Ice cream, optional


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine sugar, flour and nutmeg. Add peaches; stir to coat. Pour into a greased 11x7-in. baking pan.
  • 2. For topping, in a small bowl, combine sugar, flour, baking powder and salt; cut in the butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in egg. Spoon over peaches.
  • 3. Bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is golden. Serve hot or cold with ice cream if desired. Yield: 8-10 servings.

"Yummy! We had some delicious local peaches getting ripe, so i found this recipe with solid ratings. I followed others and cut sugar to 1/2 cup in the peach mixture. Good flavor, great crust crust thickness and easy recipe to follow. Would make again."

"I just made this with fresh peaches, and it is absolutely divine. I can hardly wait until after dinner so I can have some with ice cream on it (still too early in the day for me to do it now.)"

"Based on all the review comments, I felt that I had to start somewhere "new". This is one of the better cobblers I have had! So...the secret to my success is: cut down the sugar in the fruit mixture to 1/2 cup. I used canned peaches that were put up by a friend and I knew they were not overly sweet. I drained all the juice from the peaches before I put them in the mixing bowl. I deleted the nutmeg and replaced with 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. For the topping, I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup and the salt to 1/2 teaspoon. The result was great! I wouldn't change a thing from my "new" version of this recipe."

SORRY the peach cobbler did not taste as good as it looks.
Recipe is TOOO SWEET and I love sweet, sooo decrease sugar before making this.
PEACH JUICE?? Peaches became very juicy following addition of sugar. No guidance on whether to add the juice along with peaches (or how much of it) so I included all of it.
Ended up with a OVERLY SWEET MUSHY MESS. Waste of my time and my fresh peaches !!
But WHO READS all the comments before making a recipe?
CHANGE the recipe to include options so people are aware !"

"Made this recently and served warm with ice cream. The only change I would make is to add my sugar to peaches to sugar and let them set awhile to get more juice.Other than it being a little drier than I would like ( my peaches probably were not as ripe and juicy as I would have liked) it was delicious!"

"Wow... I was craving a peach cobbler and this recipe was absolutely perfect. I used canned peaches and you could hardly tell the difference. Also the crust really had lots of flavour and was nice and crispy. I reduced the sugar because of previous reviews and I think if you do that, you could reduce the salt slightly too. Yum!"

"Just wanted to add I found the topping a little too sweet for my taste, but no one else did. Because our peaches were so sweet, I could have cut down to 3/4 c. for the peach mixture. Either way, this is a great recipe. Adjust it to your taste."

"This was a big hit with my family. Made it in an 9 x 9 aluminum disposable pan set on a jelly roll pan. The only change I made was to bake the peach mixture for about 15 minutes (until it was hot & bubbly) and then added the topping and baked another 20 minutes. This prevents the topping from getting soggy and I do this for all cobblers. BTW, serving with vanilla bean ice cream is not an option. :) Thanks for a great recipe."

"I used about 3 cups of peaches and 1 cup of blueberries.

Since several people mentioned it was too sweet I used 2/3 c sugar with the peaches and 3/4 c sugar in the topping. I might try even a little less sugar next time.
Other than it being a little too sweet for my taste I enjoyed it and really liked the topping."

"This is my favorite cobbler recipe. Everyone who eats it, asks for the recipe. And, it works great as a low-sugar recipe too by substituting the sugar with Splenda Sugar Blend. I make it all through the year with fresh and frozen Georgia peaches."
