Peach cobbler is one of the best summer desserts, since this is the time that peaches are fresh and sweet. Cobbler is also easier to make than pie, since there’s no rolling required.
I personally never eat pie without ice cream. Of course, this cobbler is just fabulous on its own — but ice cream takes it over the top. Here's my recipe for Vanilla Kefir Ice Cream.
If you're looking for a special way to treat your loved ones, I hope you'll make this delicious peach cobbler.Print
Pie Dough: (Note: This crust contains gluten. If you are gluten free, purchase a store-bought gluten-free pie crust at the health food store)
- Sprouted flour (3/4 cup)
- Lard, beef or bison tallow, or lard, ideally leaf lard — or use butter, very cold (1/4 cup or 2oz)
- Butter, grass-fed, straight from the fridge or frozen (2.5 TBS)
- Sea salt (1/4 tsp)
- Palm sugar, maple sugar, or sucanat(1/2 tsp)
- Water, filtered, ice cold (1/4-1/2 cup)
- Peaches, fresh, large, organic if possible (6)
- Palm sugar, maple sugar, or rapadura (1/8 -1/4 cup, to taste)
- Sea salt (pinch)
- Lemon, fresh (1)
- Cornstarch, organic or arrowroot powder (1 tsp)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
1. Add flour, sea salt and sugar to a large mixing bowl ( I have never found it necessary to sift).
2. Cut butter and lard or tallow up into large chunks and add to the bowl. If using tallow, you can grate it with a box grater.
3. Slowly add cold filtered water, a little at a time, as you mix the pie dough with your (clean) hands. You don’t have to use all the water — just use a little at a time and just use enough to hold it together. If you need to use more water than 1/3 cup, use more. Just add slowly and be sure it is ice cold. This is important: only mix until the lard and butter chunks are no smaller than the size of peas. Better yet, the size of olives. Do NOT overmix! This is the most important part of making a good pie crust. You must have little blobs of fat –this is what will make the pie crust flaky and light, not dense and hard like a rock.
4. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
5. Peel peaches and cut into thin wedges.Place peach slices into a 2-quart baking dish.
6. Squeeze 1 tablespoon of juice from the lemon over the peaches using a fork or lemon reamer. Toss together with the sugar (to taste), pinch of sea salt, and cornstarch.
7. Drop blobs (about the size of ping pong balls) of pie crust over peaches.
8. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, or until topping is golden.
9. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
1. Make pie dough for cobbler topping (you can make the dough a day or two ahead and store it in the fridge).
2. Freeze the ice cream canister at least 12 hours ahead.
3. Make ice cream at least a couple hours ahead.

Support Me & My Work
I have been blogging about real food, alternative health, and about the dangers of vaccines and Big Pharma since 2007. As a result, the cabal has punished me severely financially via the IRS, FTC, hacks, etc. I lost my blog network in 2014 which I now believe was an orchestrated attack. Last summer, I lost 80% of my income from my blog due to the Google algorithm change that impacted almost all health bloggers including Dr. Mercola.I'm now working to build my blog and YouTube channel and I appreciate all the support from my fans. Once I can start making more money, I will be able to hire some help and childcare, so I can create more content. Thank you for any help you can offer. Here are some ways you can support me as a content creator and journalist:
- Support me on Patreon (I'm still setting up the bonuses from the tiers but you can start donating now).
- Buy my shampoo or skincare. Want more info? Read my review of MONAT. Or click here to learn how to order MONAT and save the most money. Got questions? Send me an email at email@example.com with any questions or if you need help placing an order.
- Send me a donation via Paypal: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Enroll in my online course: Online Marketing Simplified. Updates to the course are temporarily on hold so I can cover Q -- but I will be back to adding course lessons as soon as the storm is over and we are out of quarantine -- any week now!
- If you can't help financially, it's OK! You can help by sharing my content. Share my blog posts, YouTube videos, and Facebook & Instagram posts, and leave me comments. Sharing helps get my work seen -- and liking and commenting helps boost the content in the search engine algorithms.
