Whether you're in the middle of an abundant peach season or need an easy dessert for a family get together, peach cobbler made with Bisquick is a quick and easy recipe you can throw together in just a few minutes.

Now I say quick and easy… I mean it's quick and easy to throw together. But it still takes a little time to bake, so the baking part is not quite so quick as the time you can put it together.

This cobbler has a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg mixed in with the biscuit crust. And the peaches, mixed with brown sugar, give the cobbler its sweetness.

But it's not too sweet. That's one thing I really like about this old-fashioned peach cobbler.

WHAT KIND OF PEACHES SHOULD I USE TO MAKE BISQUICK PEACH COBBLER?

While you can make an easy peach cobbler with frozen peaches or canned peaches (just be sure to drain canned peaches), I really recommend fresh peaches.

I also recommend finding ripe peaches that are in season because you'll get a lot better flavor.

How to tell if peaches are ripe?

  • Just give them a little squeeze. If they're slightly soft and your fingers are able to make a slight dent, you're probably good to go.
  • Look at the color of the peaches. You want that gorgeous peachy blush tone (sort of a darker yellow color).
  • Look for wrinkling skin around the stem, not too much but the first signs of wrinkles.

If you have peaches and they're just not ripe enough yet, try putting them in a paper bag overnight, and they'll ripen right up.

CAN I USE ANOTHER BISCUIT MIX?

Sure! While this is a fresh peach cobbler with Bisquick, you can use any kind of biscuit mix.

One that comes to mind is Pioneer. Or you can even use a generic baking mix or your own biscuit mix.

Keep in mind I haven't tried it… But I'd wager to say you can even use a gluten-free baking mix to make this recipe.

DO I REALLY NEED A CAST IRON SKILLET?

Nope. While I love to bake it in my 10.25-inch cast iron skillet, you can bake a southern peach cobbler in any 8×8 or 9-inch baking dish.

HOW TO MAKE PEACH COBBLER WITH BISQUICK

The most tedious part of making this cobbler is prepping your peaches, but even that isn't difficult.

Wash your peaches first. I like to soak any fruit we eat in a vinegar/water bath for 10 minutes or so.

Then just follow the following steps:

  1. Mix your biscuit mix (I use original Bisquick or Buttermilk Bisquick), cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. Add the milk to the biscuit mix and mix together.
  3. Melt butter and mix it into the mixture, as well.
  4. Then pour your crust into an un-greased cast iron skillet or baking dish.

Now for the peach mixture:

  1. After peeling and slicing the peaches, mix them together with the sugar and brown sugar.
  2. Then spoon the peach mixture over the Bisquick mixture in the pan. You can sprinkle it with pecans or walnuts if you want.

Then you'll just bake the cobbler according to the instructions in the recipe card below. It'll need to bake for close to an hour before it turns a nice golden brown.

Allow it to cool before serving. It's so delicious served with a dollop of whipped cream or a generous helping of vanilla ice cream.

ALTERNATIVE RECIPE INGREDIENTS AND OPTIONS

There are a few different ways you can switch up this recipe…

  • Use a different fruit. I'm thinking blackberries would work quite nicely. Or you can try apple pie filling, blueberries, maybe even strawberries.
  • Sprinkle the top of your cobbler with a cinnamon/sugar mixture before putting it in the oven. This'll give it a little extra sweetness, as well as a slight crisp.
  • If you want to make a gluten-free peach cobbler, use a gluten-free biscuit mix.

DOES EASY PEACH COBBLER WITH BISQUICK NEED TO BE REFRIGERATED?

You normally shouldn't need to refrigerate peach cobbler. In fact, it'll likely be eaten up too quickly to even be refrigerated.

Just cover it with a sheet of wax paper and let it rest on the counter.

However, if you are going to be leaving it out for more than a day or so, I recommend you put it in the fridge.

CAN YOU FREEZE PEACH COBBLER?

Yes, you can. Just be sure to store it in an airtight container so it doesn't get freezer burn.

And allow plenty of time to thaw in the fridge before re-heating.
