Ok there is no murder in this post but this recipe did come from the latest book I’m reading “Peach Cobbler Murder.”  It’s book numer seven in the Hannah Swensen Mystery series. I first spoke about this series when I did my chocolate chip crunch cookies post. If you haven’t started reading these books yet I command you go out and start! They are great!

Now onto this delicious cobbler. I LOVED it!  It was sweet, but not to sweet, and the peaches held up nicely to the cooking. I used frozen peaches because I did not have fresh and I think they were perfect.  The topping reminded me of a sweet light textured biscuit.   The only thing I didn’t like is that I gave half of the pan to my next door neighbor. I could have totally eaten that whole pan by myself…


P.S. I watched Julie & Julia tonight. I haven’t watched it since the theater. I found myself crying at the end. It’s funny because it’s not sad but sometimes I just get so overwhelmed with emotion. Anyone else have this problem? Also I really have a craving for Beef Bourguignon now…

Yield: 9x13 pan

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour 50 minutes


For Filling:

  • 10 cups frozen sliced peaches
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 stick of butter, melted

Note: Do not thaw peaches before you make this - leave them frozen

For Top Crust:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 stick butter, softened
  • 2 beaten eggs

Source: Peach Cobbler Murder by Joanne Fluke


For Filling:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray 9x13 inch pan with nonstick spray.

Measure the peaches and put them in a large mixing bowl. Let them sit on the counter and slightly thaw for 10 minutes. Then toss with lemon juice.

In a smaller bowl combine white sugar, salt, flour, and cinnamon. Mix them together with a fork until they're evenly combined.

Pour the dry mixture over the peaches and toss. You may use a spoon or clean hands. Once most of the dry ingredients are clinging to the peaches, dump them into the pan you have prepared. Sprinkle any dry mixture left in the bowl on top of the peaches in the pan.

Melt the butter, then drizzle over the peaches. Then cover cake pan tightly with foil.

Bake the peach mixture at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Take out of the oven and set on a heat proof surface, but DON'T TURN OFF THE OVEN.

For Topping:
Combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in the smaller bowl you used earlier. Cut in the butter until the mixture looks like coarse cornmeal. Add beaten eggs and mix. The result will resemble library paste but smell a whole lot better!

Remove foil from the peaches and drop on spoonfuls of the topping. Because the topping is thick you will have to do this is little dibs and dabs scraped from the spoon with another spoon, a rubber spatula, or with your freshly washed finger. Dab over the whole pan until it looks polka-dotted.

Bake in a 350 degree oven uncovered for an additional 50 minutes.

It can be eaten warm, room temperature or chilled 🙂

    apples are meant to be in pies and peaches are meant for cobblers, that’s my view. your dessert looks amazing, and it’d look even better with a plop of vanilla ice cream melting down over the top. 🙂

    Gorgeous cobbler! I so wish I were your neighbor. 😉 I think I need to start reading those books, they sound like so much fun! Happy Friday!

    I’m reading that book tonight! Don’t tell me ‘who did it!” I tried one of the cookie recipes in the first book, and I was not happy with the result, but I can’t wait to try others.

    No peaches in my neck of the woods. Would this work with canned peaches or would they be too sweet?

    Yum! Makes me hungry for wonderful summer peaches. I wanted to my Julia’s Beef Bourguignon since I saw the show too.

    I totally need to read those books… I’m not a big reader, but when I find the right books, I usually can’t put them down. Those sound great. Plus, the peach cobbler looks soooooo good!

    I’m craving this cobbler….

    don’t you love Julie and Julia? Though Julie made me squirm…it reminded me too much of a certain blond duckie!

    Hi, just wondering about the topping; instructions say add eggs and the milk but recipe doesn’t say how much milk.



    • nutmegnanny replied: — October 14th, 2015 @ 7:36 pm

      Hi Jen! I don’t see in the directions where it says milk. I see “Add beaten eggs and mix.” Can you let me know if you still see this? Thanks!

    This translated to 1/4 of the recipe easily. I also used cake flour – made it lighter and crunchier-ish. Great basic wonderful recipe. Thank you!

    Was it me??? This recipe was so sweet that I couldn’t eat it. I’m going to try it again and cut the sugar in both the peaches and the topping.

    • nutmegnanny replied: — January 16th, 2017 @ 10:22 pm

      Hi Jennifer! Cutting down on the sugar will definitely help if you find it a bit too sweet. I know that sometimes depending on my batch of frozen peaches they can affect the level of sweetness. Hope you give it another try and enjoy the cobbler!

    I wanted to whip up a tasty treat for the Old Hippie (O.H.) and myself tonight. I thought this fit the bill because I had the ingredients and I could cut the recipe in half which was more than enough for us. I skimmed through the recipe and had it in the oven at 9:20 and prepared the topping. Thinking it will be snack time shortly. That’s when I read after topping put back in oven for 50 more min.! I will pay closer attention to the time in the future. I’m a night owl so that’s alright. But O.H. heads to bed at 10 but there ought to be some good smells coming from the kitchen about that time and I have a feeling I’ll have his company a little longer.

    Vickie Critten — May 8, 2017 at 11:17 pm

    I have to be honest and say this was not the best cobbler I’ve tried. I thought the flour in the filling was too much, I did cut the recipe in half, and I would prefer to use arrowroot or cornstarch as a thickener. I could have cut the sugar some, also. But the biscuit topping was both crispy on the outside and moist on the inside and that part of the recipe is definitely a keeper. I question the necessity of baking the peach mixture for 30 min. prior to adding the topping. I think it would of been quicker to cook the peaches on the stove for 5-10 min and then putting on the topping and bake for 50 min. Just my opinion.

    Vickie Critten — May 8, 2017 at 11:20 pm

    I forgot to add that O.H. (Old Hippie) stayed up til 11:30 and thoroughly enjoyed his very warm dish of cobbler topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

    Made this today with some peaches i froze from our local orchard. This was truly the BEST peach cobbler recipe I have ever made! Thank you so very much!

    Katie — August 11, 2019 at 10:29 pm

    This is a fantastic recipe. I was planning on making cobbler with fresh peaches but the ones I had gotten had gone bad. Was nervous about frozen peaches but this cobbler was delicious. This will be my go-to recipe from now on!

    Theresa — September 14, 2019 at 10:55 am

    I made this cobbler according to the directions except that I used a little less sugar as I freeze my peaches with some sugar. I made about a recipe and a half. My husband gets very sad if I bring a dish to potluck and he doesn’t get his own. They smelled incredible while they were baking. I just took the cobblers out of the oven and I took a quick taste test. The cobbler is yummy and I’m sure it will be the hit at the potluck.
    Thank you for this recipe.
