Crockpot Peach Cobbler


Summertime is peak peach season, which means it’s the ideal time to make one of my favorite desserts – crockpot peach cobbler! This cobbler cooks entirely in the slow cooker, keeping your kitchen cool while delivering the most delicious fruit-filled treat. My family goes crazy over this recipe every time the weather heats up. Grab some fresh peaches and get ready for a new go-to summer dessert!

Should I Use Canned or Fresh Peaches?

I always use fresh peaches if they are in season because they make the cobbler so much more flavorful. Canned peaches will work too, but since fresh peaches are at their best right now, I highly recommend using them. Just be sure to pit and slice them before mixing them into the filling. The natural sweetness of fresh peaches means you may be able to use less sugar too!

What If My Peaches Are Too Tart?

If you end up with some really tart peaches, no problem! Just add a bit more sugar to the filling to balance out the tartness. I usually start with 2 tablespoons of sugar for 8 peaches, but have added up to 1/4 cup sugar when the peaches were very sour. Taste a slice of peach before mixing up the filling to judge whether yours need more sweetener.

Should I Cook This Cobbler on High or Low?

You can cook this on either HIGH for 2-3 hours or LOW for 3-4 hours. I prefer to use the HIGH setting to get the cobbler done faster. Just keep an eye on it near the end and use a toothpick to test the biscuit topping for doneness. As long as the topping is cooked through and the filling is bubbling, your cobbler is ready!

Can I Substitute Other Fruit?

While peach is my favorite, you can absolutely use other fruits like apples, cherries, apricots or nectarines. Stick to the same amount of fruit the recipe calls for and adjust sugar to taste based on the sweetness of whichever fruit you choose. This basic method works great with any summertime fruit!

Should I Rest the Cobbler Before Serving?

Yes, be sure to let the crockpot peach cobbler rest for 10-15 minutes with the lid off before digging in. This helps thicken up the filling a bit as it starts to cool. I like to use this last bit of cook time to grab the ice cream from the freezer or whip up an easy homemade caramel sauce to serve over the top!

Let me know if you give this easy crockpot dessert a try this summer! It’s truly the perfect treat for hot days when you want something sweet but don’t need the oven on. The end result is a cobbler with the most delicious sweet and pillowy biscuit topping over gently spiced, fruit-filled goodness. Enjoy!
