Pioneer Woman Peach Cobbler With Canned Peaches recipe

Peach cobbler is popular in the Southern US, home to some of the best peaches in the world. The old-fashioned name “cobbler” is thought to describe the cobblestone-like appearance of the biscuit topping.

Similar to a peach crumble, a peach cobbler consists of a syrupy, peachy filling, topped with a buttery biscuit. Pioneer Woman’s recipe simplifies this classic dish by using canned peaches instead of fresh ones.

Canned peaches eliminate the need to wash and peel peaches or slice them. They also make it possible to prepare this dish when peaches aren’t in season.

This copycat recipe is one of the simplest ways to enjoy fruit in a dessert. With just a few ingredients and an hour, you can serve up this scrumptious cobbler for dessert tonight!

All About Pioneer Woman’s Peach Cobbler with Canned Peaches Ingredients


All-purpose flour is the type of flour used by Pioneer Woman in this recipe. It’s the best all-around flour for baking since it contains a medium amount of gluten.

You could also use self-rising flour if you wanted. This type of flour contains salt and baking powder which helps make baked goods rise.

If you do use self-rising flour, skip the baking powder in this recipe. You should also reduce how much salt you add.


Butter is a fat that acts as a texture and flavor enhancer in baked goods. Butter usually comes in two different varieties: salted or unsalted.

I like to use unsalted butter when baking because then it’s easier to control the saltiness of the dish. If you use salted butter, make sure you adjust the amount of salt in the recipe to compensate.

Butter contains dairy, but you can make this dish vegan by swapping it out for a non-dairy fat. Vegan margarine is now widely available and is very similar in taste and texture to dairy butter.

Canned Peaches

You can buy whole, halved, or sliced canned peaches at any supermarket. Like many canned fruits, they are stored in syrup to help preserve them and add flavor.

If you want to make this recipe when peaches are out of season, canned peaches are a great option! According to research by the University of Oregon, canned peaches have the same nutritional content as fresh peaches.

If you have fresh peaches available, feel free to use them in place of canned peaches. Frozen peaches work well too, but be aware they can release a lot of moisture once they’re cooked.

Kosher Salt

Salt helps balance the sweetness of this peach cobbler, and also acts as a flavor enhancer for the fruit!

Many bakers use kosher salt instead of table salt since it is easier to measure due to the coarse texture. Table salt is more compact, which can make it harder to take precise measurements.

Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is often added to fruit pies and cobblers to help balance out the sweetness. The sourness of the lemon also brightens the flavor of the peaches!

Baking Powder

Baking powder is a leavening agent which helps create the fluffiness of the biscuit topping. It does this by releasing carbon dioxide into the batter, which causes bubbles to form.

Those bubbles infuse the dough with air and give baked goods their light texture.


This cobbler recipe uses whole milk to help moisten the cobbler batter. Unlike water, milk contains protein, flavor, and creaminess.

Non-dairy milks like almond milk or coconut milk would work in this recipe as well. Just be aware they may change the flavor of the biscuit topping.


Sugar is the heart and soul of any baked good. This ingredient gives desserts their sweetness and also makes baked goods moist and tender.

White sugar is the most common type of sugar. If you’d like to add more of a caramel flavor to your cobbler, you can use brown sugar instead.

Coarse sugar helps give the biscuit topping its satisfying crunch. If you can’t find coarse sugar, use regular white sugar on top instead.

Easy Tips for the Best Pioneer Woman Peach Cobbler With Canned Peaches

  • Be gentle when you combine the peaches with the other ingredients. Peaches are delicate and may break apart when mixed.

  • Thicken the fruit base of your cobbler by adding 1-2 tablespoons of cornstarch. The syrup will get thicker as it heats up in the oven, so don’t worry if it looks watery at first.

  • Buy sliced peaches in water or unsweetened juice. Peaches packed in syrup are more common, but will add a lot of extra sugar to your dish.

  • Combine different fruits with peaches if you’d like! This cobbler recipe would be delicious with blackberries or blueberries added in.

  • Add a dash of cinnamon to the peach filling. This sugar and spice combination will give your cobbler more flavor.

  1. Preheat the Oven

    Set your oven to 375˚F.

  2. Butter the Baking Dish

    Add three tablespoons of butter to the baking dish. Place the baking dish in the oven so the butter can melt.

  3. Make the Fruit Filling

    Add lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 2/3 cups sugar, and canned peach juice to a medium bowl. Combine the ingredients with a spatula.

    Pull the baking pan with melted butter from the oven. Add sugar mixture and canned peaches to the prepared baking dish and set aside.

  4. Mix the Biscuit Dough

    Add 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, flour, and baking powder to a medium mixing bowl and whisk. Add 1/4 cup of cubed, chilled butter.

    Cut the flour with the butter using your fingers until the texture becomes crumbly. Add milk to the flour mixture and stir gently.

  5. Scoop Dough Onto Peach Filling

    Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the cobbler dough onto the fruit filling. Leave some space between the dough scoops, as they will spread when baked.

  6. Sprinkle Sugar On Top

    Sprinkle the coarse sugar evenly over the biscuit dough topping.

  7. Bake

    Place the cobbler in the oven and bake for 45 minutes. If the biscuit topping gets too dark, you can place tin foil on top to prevent further browning.

    The cobbler filling should be bubbling and the topping golden brown when ready. Let the cobbler cool for a few minutes, then serve warm.

Serving Suggestions

  • Nothing goes better with a warm peach cobbler than a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream. Freshly whipped cream or a splash of heavy cream are also popular pairings.

  • If you’re looking for something more tangy than sweet, try vanilla yogurt instead. You could even use frozen yogurt as a healthier alternative to vanilla ice cream.

  • To satisfy your sweet tooth you can also top this cobbler with caramel drizzle or a honey glaze.

How to Store Pioneer Woman Peach Cobbler With Canned Peaches?

The USDA recommends refrigerating baked goods within 2 hours of cooking. Since this peach cobbler contains milk, it should be stored immediately once it has cooled.

The best way to store this cobbler is by transferring it to an airtight container. You could also seal it with plastic wrap or tin foil.

Stored properly, this cobbler will stay good in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

This dessert can be frozen, but freezing may change the texture of the fruit. Follow the same storage methods as above, and this cobbler will keep in the freezer for up to 4 months.
