Crockpot Peach Cobbler

One of my absolute favorite desserts of all time is peach cobbler. And what's not to love? Warm cinnamon spiced peaches, are surrounded by a tender crust, that melts in your mouth. This yummy southern treat is so good with a scoop of ice cream, or big spoonful of whipped cream on top. Peach cobbler is usually baked in the oven, but today's recipes shows that it can be made in a crockpot too!


As you can see from the pictures, this recipe isn't very photogenic. Most crockpot recipes in general aren't going to win any beauty contest. But for a dessert that is as simple as dumping some ingredients into a crockpot, and letting it cook as you work on other things, it's a beautiful sight to behold. And the smell! Your whole house will smell amazing as the scents of cinnamon, peaches, and vanilla waft through the air.

The cobbler is perfect as is. But if you really want to take this dessert to the next level, then top it off with a spoonful of fresh whipped cream, or ice cream. The cool creaminess of either, is the perfect compliment to the warm cinnamon spiced cobbler. Are you drooling yet? Then let's make some peach cobbler!


Crockpot Peach Cobbler

Ingredients

2 - 16 ounce cans peaches, drained (4 cups of sliced fresh peaches, or frozen peaches, thawed and drained may be substituted)
1/2 cup, plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
Pinch of nutmeg
3/4 cup self-rising flour
6 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces

Directions

Grease the bottom and sides of a 6 quart crockpot, and set aside.
In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the peaches, 1/2 cup of the sugar, 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour peach mixture into the greased crockpot.
In another medium-sized bowl, whisk together flour, and remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon until combined.
Add butter and cut into flour, using 2 knives or a pastry blender, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Sprinkle flour mixture evenly over peach mixture in crockpot.
Place a paper towel or thin dish towel over the top of the crockpot, then cover with the lid. Cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours or until the crust turns golden brown.
Serve with whipped cream or ice cream.


Cooks notes: Every crockpot is different, with some cooking hotter than others. After the first 1 1/2 hours of cooking time, keep an eye on the sides of the cobbler, to make sure it doesn't burn.


Do you have a favorite crockpot? I love my Hamilton Beach Crockpot. It's a frugal buy, that has really proven itself. I've had it for over 7 years now, and it's still going strong. And it gets used a lot.

    1. Thank you :) While I haven't tried making this recipe gluten free, I'm sure it would turn out just as good if you used a gluten free baking mix. Just replace the self rising flour with Gluten Free Bisquick, and follow the rest of the recipe as stated.

      Good luck, and let me know how it turns out for you. I'd be happy to add a special note to the recipe, saying it was successfully adapted to a gluten free version.
