Recipe for Peach Cobbler

If the picture of the peach cobbler in yesterday's post made your mouth water and you were wishing you could make some for your best quilting buds, here is the recipe:

From Better Homes & Garden September 2005

2 29 oz cans, peach slices, drained

1 Tbsp cornstarch

2 Tbsp lemon juice

3 Tbsp butter cut into small pieces

½ Cup all-purpose flour

½ Cup granulated sugar

½ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

1 egg, slightly beaten

2 Tbsp butter, melted

½ tsp vanilla

¾ Cup flaked coconut

1 Cup whipping cream

2 Tbsp powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375 F. For filling, in a large bowl combine drained peaches, cornstarch, and lemon juice; toss well. Pour into a 2-quart square baking dish. Dot with the 2 Tbsp butter. Bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly.

Meanwhile, for topping, in a medium bowl combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add egg, melted butter, and vanilla; stir well. Fold in ¼ cup of the coconut. Dollop topping over filling. Sprinkle with remaining coconut. Bake for 35 minutes; cover with foil after 20 minutes to prevent overbrowning. Cool 30 minutes.

In a chilled bowl combine cream and powdered sugar; beat on medium-high speed until soft peaks form. Serve warm cobbler with whipped cream. Makes 8 servings.

That's it!  It goes together quickly and tastes good warm or cold!  Enjoy!


  1. Sounds great~ peach cobbler is my favorite dessert~ I will try it! All the recipes I have for peach cobbler require fresh peaches... rather limiting in Indiana!

  2. The peaches are going on my grocery list; I think I have the rest. I might make it for Easter dinner. It sounds really good. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  3. Stephanie, I made this for my group, and they loved it! It's all gone!
    Thanks for the recipe!
