Peach Filling

  • 1 1/2 - 2 lb peaches peeled and sliced (about 5-6 cups)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom or cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
  • pinch salt

Biscuit Topping

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp cold butter cut into small pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk


  • Preheat the oven to 400˚F.
  • To make the peach filling, put peach slices in a 10-inch cast iron skillet or 2.5 qt baking pan. Add the sugars, spices, cornstarch, and salt; toss well and set aside.
  • To make the biscuit topping, whisk together flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Cut in the butter pieces until the flour turns into coarse crumb. Whisk egg and milk together in a small mixing bowl and add to the flour mixture. Using a fork, stir the mixture until just combined.
  • Using a spoon, drop mounds of biscuit topping on the peach filling. Sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoon of sugar on top of biscuit topping. Bake the cobbler in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes until the biscuit top is golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
