Sweet Melissa Sundays: Bear's Peach Cobbler

This week's Sweet Melissa Sundays pick is Bear's Peach Cobbler, chosen by Andrea of Nummy Kitchen.

This recipe relies on a few pounds of fresh, peeled peaches and a handful of kitchen staples.


The peaches are tossed with a simple mixture of corn starch, lemon juice, cinnamon, and sugar, then topped with sweet, lemony biscuit dough.

The mixture is baked until the peaches are bubbling violently and the biscuits are cooked through - browned on top and without a hint of raw dough left.

From classic cobbler ingredients and preparation comes a classic taste - the cinnamon-flecked peaches were were sweet, tender, and tasted like summer to me. They were, in fact, the first peaches I have tasted since last summer.

And the biscuit topping, even two nights after the cobbler was baked, was still crispy, providing a nice contrast to the tender peaches.

There was nothing I didn't like about this recipe. I halved the recipe since peaches are still quite expensive this time of year, and divided the peaches between ramekins, which yielded 5 servings in total. I served them at a dinner party at my brother's house last night, and everyone loved them.


I love recipes that can become my "go-to" recipe, and Bear's Peach Cobbler will definitely be my go-to peach cobbler recipe.

Thanks for the choice, Andrea! You can visit her blog for the full recipe.
