Labor Day Part II: Peach Cobbler
September 21st, 2022 by Alex Koster

As promised here is the recipe for the peach cobbler that I made on Labor day. There are lots of recipes online but I liked this one from linked here, but I’ve also included it below with my suggestions.

Peach Cobbler Ingredients

  • 8 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced thin (about 4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar*
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar*
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar*
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder*
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup boiling water

Optional Additional Topping

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1. First mix the peaches, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch. Toss to coat and pour into a 2-quart baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes in an oven preheated to 400 degrees F.

2. While the peaches pre-bake, combine the flour, remaining white and brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Blend in the cold butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the boiling hot water until just combined.

3. Remove the peaches from the oven and drop spoonfuls of the topping over them. If you like cinnamon, mix the optional additional topping above (cinnamon and sugar) and sprinkle on top. Bake until the topping is golden brown (about 30 minutes).


  • We made this recipe twice and the second time we used all brown sugar which I honestly preferred to using half white and half brown sugar.
  • If you want to add a little more crunch or make the cobbler more like a crisp you can add 1/4 cup of oats
  • While this is technically a “dessert”, it’s really good for breakfast as well.
