Quick and Easy Peach CobblerThis really is a very quick and easy peach cobbler.  Once you have the ingredients assembled, you should have it in the oven in eight minutes.  And it’s a very good peach cobbler.

We looked for a recipe that you can make on a busy day, one that took little time in the kitchen.  This one uses canned peaches, a mix for the topping, and the slurry is thickened as it bakes, not cooked separately on the stovetop. 

For a special treat, add the optional cinnamon chips to the batter.  You will need a 1 1/2 quart deep baking dish.

This cobbler has a biscuit-like topping.  For a recipe with a more cake-like topping, see this peach cobbler recipe.

Quick and Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.


1 29 ounce size can of sliced peaches in syrup
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice or nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Mix the sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and allspice or nutmeg in bottom of a 1 1/2 quart baking dish.
  2. Add a tablespoon of juice from the peaches and stir with a fork to make a paste.  Dilute the paste to a slurry with another couple tablespoons of the juice.  Add a bit more juice and stir.  Add the vanilla extract.  Add the peaches and the rest of the juice and stir.


1 1/2 cups just-add-water buttermilk biscuit mix
3/4 cup cinnamon chips (optional)
1/3 cup cold water
two tablespoons cinnamon and sugar mixture

  1. To make the drop biscuits, mix the biscuit mix and optional cinnamon chips together.  Add the cold water and stir together to form a thick batter.
  2. Spoon the batter over the top of the peaches. Place the cobbler in the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the top is a golden brown.

Serve hot or cold with cold milk, cream, or vanilla ice cream.
