Jump to Recipea square baking dish of peach cherry cobblre

Cobblers are one of my favorite desserts to make because it is super simple and easy to make. This peach cherry cobbler is the perfect one for a summer dessert.

I recently got some fresh peaches and tart cherries at the farmers market and was looking for new ways to use them.

Peach Cherry Cobbler Ingredients

  • Peaches: Try to get yellow peaches if you can. I find that they are sweet, juicy peaches. They tend to break down easier than white peaches. When slicing your peaches you can keep the skin on or peel them. I typically keep the skin on just because it is easier and I don’t mind it in the cobbler.
  • Cherries: I like to use tart cherries for the filling in this recipe. They are a little harder to find so if you can’t find tart cherries, dark sweet cherries will work great too. Try to use fresh cherries. Make sure your cherries are pitted. You can do this by hand or with a cherry pitter. It is ok if you break the cherries in the process. They will get broken down while cooking anyways.
  • Cobbler Topping: The topping consists of a flour, sugar, and butter mixture. I use melted butter because it is a little easier to mix in. You could also use cold butter and cut it in with a pastry cutter. Just throw everything into a large mixing bowl and blend together.
  • Turbinato Sugar: I love to top the cobbler with coarse sugar to give it a crispy top. This isn’t required but it in a nice touch.

This is such a great recipe but if you want to add in a unique flavor feel free to add in a little lemon zest or a tsp cinnamon to mix it up.

What Pan to Use

For this peach cherry cobbler I use a ceramic 9x9-inch baking dish. You could also use an 8x8 or an oval or round dish. Just remember you want it to be deep enough to fit all the fruit.
