Scrumptious Spiced Peach Cobbler Recipe: A Perfect Dessert for Late Winter Days

Oh, my lovely readers! With the chilly days of winter almost behind us and the promise of spring just around the corner, I’ve been searching for a dessert that not only warms our hearts but also brings a touch of sunshine into our home. My daughter, Emily, who’s a real sweetheart, absolutely loves peaches – so I thought, why not create a delightful dessert featuring her favorite fruit?

Last weekend, after a day spent skiing in Vermont, our family gathered around the fireplace to enjoy my latest creation: a scrumptious Spiced Peach Cobbler. As Emily took her first bite, her eyes lit up and she exclaimed, “Mom, this is the best peach cobbler ever!” Hearing those words warmed my heart even more than the cozy fire crackling nearby.

This Spiced Peach Cobbler is not only simple to make but also has a lovely balance of flavors with the sweetness of ripe peaches and the warmth of cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s perfect for those transitional days between winter and spring when we crave something comforting yet refreshing. So without further ado, let’s dive into the recipe!

Spiced Peach Cobbler


For the Peach Filling:
– 8 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
– 1/4 cup granulated sugar
– 1/4 cup brown sugar
– 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
– 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
– 2 teaspoons cornstarch

For the Cobbler Topping:
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 1/4 cup granulated sugar
– 1/4 cup brown sugar
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
– 1/4 cup boiling water


1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter or cooking spray.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced peaches, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Gently toss until the peaches are evenly coated with the sugar and spices. Pour the peach mixture into your prepared baking dish.

3. For the cobbler topping, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut in the chilled butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the boiling water until just combined.

4. Drop spoonfuls of the cobbler topping over the peach filling, spreading it out evenly.

5. Bake the cobbler for 25-30 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the peach filling is bubbling.

6. Allow the cobbler to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream!

I hope this Spiced Peach Cobbler brings as much joy to your family as it does to mine. It’s a wonderful way to celebrate those special moments together and to bring a little taste of sunshine into our lives during these last days of winter. Happy baking!
