This is definitely not a recipe for the faint at heart. However, those you serve this to will certainly fee special. Careful! They might think you're apologizing for something. lol

This is an amazing dessert. I first made this dish for someone I was dating many, many years ago when it was specifically requested. He said he was the luckiest man on Earth. He was talking about the cobbler. It has that affect on people.

This is like 2 dozen roses and the most romantic night out for a man! Make your husband, boyfriend, brother, uncle, dad, or anyone else feel this same way by trying this recipe.

When someone says double-crust, it's easy to think they simply mean one crust on the bottom and one on top, but this is not so.

Double-crust actually means two pies in one; two layers of peaches, two layers of crust, two layers of yumminess. This will certainly become the pie you're known for!

30 min

40 min

1 hour 10 min

Serves about 8 people 1 slice of cobbler

Ingredients

  • 1 (2-count) package refrigerated pie crusts, thawed
  • 9-12 medium peaches, pitted and sliced
  • 4 tablespoons (or 1/2 stick) butter, chilled
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, (1 large lemon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon + 1 tablespoons ground cinnamon, separated

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a square (8x8) casserole dish generously with cooking spray.
  2. Pit and slice all of your peaches into very thin slices and dump into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Along with your peach slices, add your cornstarch, sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Toss to mix and coat everything evenly.
  4. Fold in your cold butter. Do not melt or mix. You want healthy chunks of butter throughout your mixture for the cooking process.
  5. Spoon half of your peach mixture into your prepared casserole. That's right, straight in to the pan.
  6. Roll out one of your refrigerated pie crusts and place over the peaches in your baking dish. Seeing as how this pie crust will be going into a square baking dish, you may want to roll it out into the correct shape and size.
  7. Pour your remaining peach mixture over this first pie crust, essentially creating two layers of peaches in the dish.
  8. Roll out your remaining pie crust (You may want to also roll this one out a little thinner and into the right shape for your cobbler.) and fit it over the top of the baking dish, letting it drape slightly over the sides.
  9. Pinch both crusts together on the edges, creating an attractive design around the outside.
  10. Cut shallow but symmetrical slits into the top of the crust to allow the cobbler to vent during cooking.
  11. Before putting into the oven, brush the top of your cobbler with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
  12. Place the cobbler on a cookie sheet before putting it into the oven to catch any drippings while the cobbler is cooking.
  13. Bake for 40 minutes until the juices are bubbling out of the top and the the crust is golden brown on top.
  14. Let cool slightly before serving, but serve warm for the best flavor.
  15. I suggest serving it with ice cream and/or whip cream. This is the way my husband likes it! Enjoy!

I love those simple, generic pie crusts from the grocery store. However, if you can't make a homemade cobbler without also making a Homemade Pie Crust, check out my recipe.

If you would prefer the lattice look for the top of your pie like I made in the picture, it's easy. Instead of rolling it out on top of your pie, roll it out really thin on a flat surface so you can cut it. Then, using a pizza cutter, slice your pie crust into long approximately 1" wide strips (or thinner if you prefer).

I would recommend the easy way to create lattice on your pie, and first lay strips about 1" apart across one direction on your pie, and then do the same with strips the opposite direction.

If you run out of long strips, just much them all together again and roll them back out. You can then cut them into strips again to use for the other direction.

You can also add another layer of pie crust easily for the man who requests yet another layer of scrumptious crust. Simply lay a third crust in the bottom of your baking dish before you get started.

This truly has the potential to be anything you can dream! So be creative and enjoy!

I would LOVE to have fruit trees and fresh veggies in our backyard! Before Arizona, we lived in Texas. We had just planted a peach tree, a pear tree, and two raised veggie beds, and then we had to sell and move because we lost our jobs in the lay-offs leading the recession.

Here in Arizona, not much grows. Everything we've tried to plant has died. I can't wait to have land, full sun, and the ability to have fruit and veggies in our backyard once again!

Thank goodness we get tons of fruit from my husband's grandparents. They have just about every fruit tree you can imagine in their backyard. We just went to visit and came home with avocados, grapefruit, oranges and kumquats!

Triple crust! I might hurt myself..... Lol :)

That's great you get fresh and free peaches! I'm looking forward to my neighbor's fig tree ripening this summer. I never liked figs until I tried them fresh and ripe. My children and I eat them like candy! They are so good! The tree grows right beside my fence and the family has said we can pick what we want.

We don't have a peach tree but our friends do. I would love fruit trees but we already have so many trees in our yard. I'll stick to my fruit bushes and veggies in my garden for now. Thanks for your yummy recipes!

Yum. We have peaches in our backyard as well. The peach tree in our backyard neighbor's year drapes halfway over into our yard and the fruit literally just falls of the tree in large quantities. What the dogs don't eat, we try to pick and store to make peach cobbler, peach preserves, peach coffee cake, and anything else we can think of.

The fruit is so juicy. Sometimes we just stand in the backyard and eat fruit. lol It's like heaven! Yummy! If you like the crust, you should really try the triple-crust cobbler by simply putting a third crust on the bottom of the pan!

Mrs Frugal from United States on April 11, 2013:

Yummy! My favorite part of a pie or cobbler is the crust. I like lot's of crust and a tad of the filling. :)

I'll try this recipe when the peaches get ripe here in Georgia. Can't wait!! Hope your Thursday is lovely~
