Southern Peach Cobbler
Because it’s officially Fall (even if it is 90 degrees outside) and because I’m five months pregnant and addicted to sweets, I’m going to share with you one of my very favorite southern recipes: my momma’s peach cobbler. To be fair, it isn’t actually her recipe. It was passed down to her from her aunt. But to me, it’s her’s. It was a staple in our household growing up.
As an adult, (can I call myself that? Some days I’m not sure.) I have grown to love the time of year when it finally starts to cool off. I can open my kitchen windows, listen to my farm animals and fill my kitchen with scents of cinnamon and peaches.
I know what you’re thinking. Peach cobbler? Really? Everyone and their momma has a peach cobbler recipe. And you’re RIGHT. My momma DOES have a peach cobbler recipe. And it’s the best. So shut your mouth and listen up. Or keep reading. Whatever.
It’s all about the almond extract. That’s the secret. I guarantee you if you switch the vanilla extract for almond the next time you make your personal favorite cobbler recipe, it will change your life. Mark my words. Change.Your.Life.
I know the suspense is killing you, so wait no longer. Below you will find the world’s best peach cobbler recipe!
2 boxed pie crusts (or if you want to be Suzy Homemaker, make your own. You do you, boo.)
5 fresh peaches (or two bags of frozen peaches, thawed)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick of butter
1/2 teaspoon almond extract (do not substitute this ingredient!! And if you’re feeling adventurous, use a full teaspoon.)
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Mix all ingredients except pie crusts in a mixing bowl.
- Butter a 9×13 baking dish and lay one pie crust in the bottom.
- Pour in peach mixture.
- Lattice the remaining pie crust on top. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle extra sugar and cinnamon on top.
- Make for 40 minutes or until peach mixture is bubbly and crust is golden brown.
Serve it warm with a big bowl of BlueBell homemade vanilla. And if you don’t live in a BlueBell state…I have no advice for you other than to move. Enjoy!
