Ladies and gentlemen get your peaches ready. It’s about to go down.

Start by browning up a stick of unsalted butter. If you want a handy-dandy how-to then here is my post on that. If you aren’t up for browning the butter then you can simply melt the butter and stop there.

Pour the brown butter into a 9×13 baking dish.

Grab a heaping spoonful…

And scatter the peaches with all the juices over top of the batter.

Peach cobbler has to be one of my all time favorite summertime desserts. It’s relatively simple and fills your home up with an amazing aroma that will no doubt having you standing by the oven watching the timer until it has finished baking. Oh and tastes pretty darn amazing.

Serve warm. Or cold. With a dusting of powdered sugar. Or a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

Either way it’s all good in the hood. Peach cobber for life.

Enjoy!

    I think we should tap all the physicists on the shoulder and be like, “look: the answer to all the mysteries of the universe is brown butter, Duh. Onto the next problem.” 😉 I’m dying over this cobbler. Can I wash my hair with it? No, that’d be a waste of cobbler.

    It looks divine!!! My favorite cobbler by far is peach!!! I was wondering why do you leave those fuzzy skins on? Arent they fuzzy even after cooking?
    Also I love your stainless steel bowls with the great handles. Where do you buy them? Thanks!

      Hi Connie! Actually the peaches weren’t overly fuzzy to begin with but no they aren’t fuzzy after baking and it sure does skip a time consuming and painstaking step. The bowl is actually a pot made by All Clad and I bought the set at Bed, Bath and Beyond 🙂

    I love peach cobbler, but the bf liked apple cobbler. Do you think this recipe would work if I sub the peaches with apples?!?! And use cinnamon instead of cardamom?

    • Laurie McNamara replied: — August 24th, 2014 @ 11:57 am

      Hmm that’s hard to say. With the apples being a little firmer I wouldn’t know for certain if they would soften in enough time. It definitely sounds like it could but I would hate to give you a for sure answer. If you do decide to give it a go please come and let me know how it worked

    I think this is a winning idea. I also like the powdered sugar sprinkle on top. It added a little detail to the cobbler that says–Hey I am different.

      Thanks Carol! 🙂
