Skillet Peach Cobbler Recipe
August, 2015 · By Coryanne Ettiene
Skillet cobbler is one of those classic sweet treats that has stood the test of time. When I think of a classic skillet peach cobbler recipe, I think of salt of the Earth frontier cooking with a back drop of a big sky and weather aged hands forming those cobblestone mounds of dough that make this dish so recognizable. Served with seasonal fruit on the bottom and biscuit dough on top, you can cook a cobbler in a casserole dish or a skillet…but for me, the skillet makes it perfect everytime.
Even the most of reluctant bakers can whip up an amazing cobbler, and when you do so in a skillet with fresh peaches and a hint of cinnamon, it is like a slice of the frontier piled high with fresh cream. One of the first dishes I learned to make when we moved to Dallas last year was a peach cobbler because I wanted our first family dinner in Texas to have that quintessentially southern taste to welcome us home. Served with vanilla ice cream, clotted cream or perfectly chilled heavy whipping cream, this is one sweet treat treat that you will want to make sure you master before the peach season ends. I recently shared our family Skillet Peach Cobbler recipe with Stemilt on their blog The Stem, get the full recipe by clicking here.
It goes without saying that making the dough from scratch gives your cobbler a density that just can’t be reproduced from anything you can get in a cardboard tube, and really only takes a few extra minutes. And while there are recipes out there for frozen or tinned fruits, nothing beats the taste a fresh peach. Going beyond the classic Skillet Peach Cobbler recipe, there are a few ways you can jazz up this classic dish. My favorite are to kneed spices into the biscuit dough, or go a step further by creating cinnamon pin wheels that not only look amazing, but make the spices come alive. Or if you are feeling especially creative, go bold by playing with cardamon, all spice, or nutmeg.
