Traditional peach cobbler is made with fresh peaches,peeled and cut into thin wedges, sugar, lemon juice and a biscuit topping. Bake the peach mixture for 10 minutes, and prepare the biscuit topping in a separate bowl. Drop spoonfuls of the topping over the hot peach mixture, baking until golden.
Peach cobbler can be made with frozen peaches instead of fresh. This version combines 3 pounds of frozen peaches with sugar, flour, lemon juice and salt. Prepare the topping using ingredients such as flour, sugar, baking powder and vegetable shortening. Transfer the peach mixture to a baking dish, and top the peaches with small pieces of dough to create a cobbled effect. Sprinkle sugar on top and bake until it is hot and bubbly.
There are time-saving methods for making peach cobbler, and one recipe requires melting butter in a large baking dish. Combine the dry ingredients with 1 cup of milk, stir until moistened, and pour the batter into the prepared baking dish. Bring 1 cup peach slices, sugar and lemon juice to a boil, pouring the mixture over the batter. Another easy recipe, featured at BettyCrocker.com, substitutes packaged baking mix for the dry ingredients and mixes it with milk. Pour the batter into a square baking dish, add melted butter and the peach mixture on top.
