Praline Peach Cobbler Recipe

This recipe from the Missouri Ozarks represents our area well because so many farms have peach trees. Cobbler is a delicious dessert for picnics and potluck dinners. It can be served cold or warm, and is especially good topped with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups plus 2 teaspoons sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup water
  • 8 cups sliced peeled fresh peaches
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


  • 1. In a large saucepan, mix 1-1/2 cups sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon. Stir in water until smooth. Add peaches. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Pour into a lightly greased 13x9-in. baking dish; set aside.
  • 2. In a bowl, combine flour and remaining sugar; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk and stir just until moistened. If needed, add additional buttermilk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough clings together. Turn onto a floured surface; knead gently 6-8 times. Roll into a 12x8-in. rectangle.
  • 3. Combine butter, brown sugar and pecans; spread over the dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Starting with long side, roll up jelly-roll style. Cut into twelve 1-in. pieces. Place on top of the peach mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 12 servings.

Recipe Note

Editor's Note: If self-rising flour is not available, substitute 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt.

"This is a wonderful cobbler, with a lovely flavor combination plus it was very easy to prepare. It is nice to find different way to make peach cobbler and this is a real change of pace from the typical cobbler recipes. We served it with vanilla ice cream and it was a huge hit!"

"Absolutely incredible. easy to make. In fact, we bought extra peaches so we could make several batches. We then froze the peach sauce to re-use later. This also allows us to make as many as we want (especially helpful since there are only two of us at home)."
