Peach Cobbler. The Best Peach Cobbler Recipe! Fresh peaches tossed with a touch of sugar and topped with a homemade sweet and buttery topping that resembles a mix of a sugar cookie and a sweet biscuit.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Start by using ripe, fresh peaches. You can peel the skin off or leave it on, depending on your preference. Sprinkle with sugar.
Pour the peaches into a baking dish. If you want a thinner peach cobbler, use a 9 x 13 pan. If you want a thicker peach cobbler, use a 9 x 9 pan.
In a bowl, mix the melted butter, sugar, vanilla, buttermilk, flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl until you can roll it into balls.
Top with scoops of the cobbler topping, trying to cover most of the peaches. Press the dough into circles on top of the peaches.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until the peaches are cooked through and the juices are bubbling. Sprinkle the topping with some sugar and place back in the oven for another 7-10 minutes or until the topping is cooked through.
Once you remove it from the oven, let it rest. Since you heated up the juices, it is time to cool them down and let them set-up and thicken. I would suggest waiting at least 20-25 minutes before serving.
Serve warm with vanilla bean ice cream.
You want to make sure they are slightly soft to the touch with a slight give to them. If they are hard as a rock, they probably aren't going to be very sweet or juicy.
