Ingredients

For the Filling

  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar (depending on sweetness of fruit)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 pounds peaches, halved, pitted, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices, and cut in half again crosswise (about 4 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

For the Topping

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2/3 cup low-fat buttermilk

Directions

  1. Make the filling: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar and cornstarch. Add peaches and lemon juice; toss to combine. Divide filling evenly among four 8-ounce custard cups (or one 2-quart baking dish); transfer to a rimmed baking sheet.

  2. Make the topping and bake: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, blend in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk; stir just until a dough forms. Drop dough onto peaches, using about 1/3 cup dough for each custard cup. Sprinkle dough with remaining teaspoon sugar. Bake until fruit is bubbling and biscuit topping is golden brown, 35 to 45 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes; serve warm.

    I give this a thumbs up! I made this tonight for a small dinner party. The aroma filled the house and put everyone in a great mood. I did not have enough ripe peaches so I substituted some nectarines and threw in a few fresh blueberries. The color was magnificent and everyone loved the taste. Cobblers are wonderful fast desserts, and this recipe is very quick and easy. I will make this again and again! I loved watching Sarah's video demonstration on Everyday Food. She is so charming.Luv her.

    I made it in one larger casserole dish. Also, added fresh blackberries. Didn't stir them in, too fragile. Rinsed them and then instead of patting dry (squash!), i lined my salad spinner with paper towels to absorb and cushion and spun.... I placed them in the bottom of the pan and on top of the peach mixture. Also added grated fresh ginger to the dough - love peaches with ginger. mmmmmm , good.

    Great recipe and easy to make! I used a food processor to make the dough. My boyfriend tried this and said "this is the best peach cobbler I've ever had!"

    This is one of my husband's favorite desserts, and I've made it several times. Each time I make it I add a bit more flour--less than a quarter of a cup--to make the batter a bit thicker. If i don't have buttermilk, I use milk to which I've added a tablespoon of lemon juice.

    It's certainly not too late peaches in Illinois. We've picked over 400 freestones off our tree this weekend and still have a tree, with cling peaches, yet to ripen enough for harvest. We've been sharing boxes with neighbors
