This 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.

- 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.
