Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler


Sweet, juicy peaches are the star of this dessert. Tossed with warming spices and a secret ingredient (hint: it’s peppery),they’re baked between two layers of flaky pie crust, making it a true staple of the South. If peaches aren’t in season, try using canned peaches instead.

How to Make It

1. Step
Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
2. Step
Peel, pit, and slice the peaches into wedges. You should have about 10 cups.
3. Step
Make the peach filling: In a large pot, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and peaches. Turn the heat to medium and gently stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Cook for 3–5 minutes, until the mixture is simmering and the peaches have started to release their juices.
4. Step
In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of syrup from the pot until the cornstarch dissolves. Stir the mixture back into the filling and bring to boil. Cook until the syrup thickens and turns opaque, 3–4 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat.
5. Step
Make the crust: Grease a 9 x 13-inch casserole dish with melted butter.
6. Step
On a lightly floured flat surface, unroll 2 of the pie crusts. Overlap the crusts at the center so it looks like a Venn diagram, then use a floured rolling pin to roll over the overlapping portions to seal together. Flour the top of the crust, then roll onto the rolling pin. Unroll over the prepared baking dish. Gently lift the edges of the crust so the bottom sits flush against the bottom of the baking dish. Let the edges hang over the sides of the pan.
7. Step
Use a slotted spoon to transfer the peach filling into the crust, draining off any excess juices. Save any leftover syrup for serving.
 Dollop the cubed butter over the peaches.
8. Step
Lightly roll out the remaining pie crust, then unroll over the peach filling. Fold the edges of the top and bottom crusts together to seal.
9. Step
In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolk with the water. Brush all over the top of the crust.
10. Step
In a separate small bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon. Liberally sprinkle over the crust.
11. Step
Cut 3 large diagonal slits into the top of the crust to release steam.
12. Step
Bake the cobbler for 35–45 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. If the edges of the crust are getting too dark, cover with foil and continue baking.
13. Step
Let the cobbler cool for 25–30 minutes before serving with vanilla ice cream. Drizzle with some of the reserved peach syrup.
