Peach cobbler is a classic comfort food typically enjoyed with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. However, there are an endless amount of ways to savor in the sweet peach flavors and buttery biscuit toppings with these 50 delicious peach cobbler recipes.
How to tell if peaches are ripe
There are a few signs that tell you if your peaches are ripe and ready to enjoy. Here are some ways you can test your peaches for ripeness:
- They are slightly soft. Gently squeeze your peach to see if they have some give. If your peaches are firm to the touch, they are not ready.
- They have a sweet smell. If a peach gives off a sweet aroma, your peach is bursting with sweet, peachy flavors and is ready to be enjoyed.
- They are the right color. Ripe peaches have a dark yellow color whereas some peaches have a red color from direct sun exposure. Green peaches, or any hint of green, means the peach needs more time to ripen. Green peaches are edible but they will not be as sweet and juicy as a ripe peach.
- They are the right shape. Ripe peaches will become more round as they ripen.
If you need to slow the ripening process, put your peaches in the fridge where they can keep for five days.
What kind of peach is best for a cobbler?
For peach cobbler recipes, you will want a juicy, sweet peach such as yellow peaches. White peaches are similar in flavor and slightly sweeter than yellow peaches. But since they are softer, they don’t hold up well when baked.
Should peaches be peeled for cobbler?
Peeling peaches before making a cobbler is the baker’s choice. The skin on sliced peaches will soften during baking, making them tender and adding some texture to the final dish. However, if you’d rather not have peach skin in your cobbler, you can skin them.
What is the difference between a crisp and a cobbler?
Crisps and cobblers are both fruit desserts typically made in the oven or on a stovetop skillet. However, there are a few differences between the two.
Exterior: Crisps are usually lighter due to their streusel topping and use of oats. Whereas, cobblers are denser due to the biscuit dough topping and base. Additionally, the toppings of crisp are typically a full layer unlike the biscuit dough dollops that sit on top of a cobbler as individual biscuits.
Interior: Crisps have a crispy, streusel crumb topping, but also can have a slightly crispy fruit interior, as well. On the other hand, cobblers are more soft-centered and usually have a bottom crust made of biscuit dough.

How Do You Know if Peach Cobbler is Done?
Insert a thermometer into the center of your cobbler or the thickest part of the topping to check if your peach cobbler recipes are done. If the thermometer reads 200 degrees F, your peach cobbler should be done.
Additionally, you will notice the filling around the edges is bubbly.
Can You Make Cobbler With Canned Peaches?
Yes, you can. However, you want to make sure to drain canned peaches completely before using them. In other words, the liquid or syrup they are packed in can add too much moisture to your cobbler.
Is the Cobbler Supposed to be Gooey?
If your peach cobbler recipes come out too gooey or runny, the peaches may have been too ripe and juicy. Similarly, if you used canned peaches and didn’t drain enough of the liquid out of them, the extra juices may cause the cobbler topping to become runny or mushy.
Can You Freeze Peach Cobbler?
Yes, you can freeze your peach cobbler once it has cooled. However, your topping may become soggy after defrosting.
To freeze an unbaked cobbler, prepare the fruit and topping in your oven-safe baking dish. Then cover and freeze for up to three months. You can then bake the frozen cobbler in the oven for 20 minutes longer than the recipe directs.
Does Peach Cobbler Need To Be Refrigerated?
Yes, your leftover peach cobbler should be covered and stored in the refrigerator. So, you’ll be able to enjoy a refrigerated cobbler for 2 to 3 days.
How Do You Thicken the Cobbler Filling Without Cornstarch?
If you want to avoid using cornstarch in your peach cobbler, there are a few substitutions you can make in order to thicken your filling:
- All-purpose flour: Since this ingredient is lower in starch, use more of it than you would with a higher-starch thickener. For every 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, use about 3 tablespoons of flour.
- Tapioca: A processed starch product extracted from cassava, a root vegetable that for every 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, 2 tablespoons of tapioca can be used.
- Arrowroot: Made from the root of the arrowroot plant, this starchy flour will work as a one-to-one substitution for cornstarch.
- Instant ClearJel: This substitution keeps fillings thick through a range of temperatures, whether you use it before baking or before freezing.
- Pie Filling Enhancer: Similar to Instant ClearJel but has added ascorbic acid (adding a bright, tart note) and superfine sugar, preventing clumping. The enhancer is about half sugar, so reduce the sugar in your recipe accordingly.
Classic comfort food like these peach cobbler recipes can be enjoyed the old-fashioned way or with unique twists as a way to use up sweet peaches. Savor in endless ways to enjoy this dessert with this list of delicious peach cobbler desserts that your family and friends are sure to enjoy.
