This Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler has the perfect sweet biscuit crust on top. People go crazy after this old fashioned, from scratch recipe and you will too!
3 pounds fresh peaches peeled, pitted, and sliced
1 lemon zested and juiced
1 tablespoon cornstarch
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
⅓ cup white sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup cold salted butter cubed
1 cup half and half
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium-size mixing bowl, toss peach slices with lemon zest and juice, cornstarch, vanilla, and white sugar. Spread them out in the 9×13 pan.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, powdered sugar, baking powder, and salt. Use a pastry cutter to cut in butter until it resembles a course meal, or pulse the whole thing together in a food processor.
Pour in half and half and stir to form a thick batter.
Scoop the batter in large clumps on top of the berries to form a nice cobbler crust.
Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Serve warm or cooled.
