This is my favorite southern peach cobbler recipe. It reminds me of my Aunt Pearlene’s from when I was a kid. However, I add a little Crown Royal to mine!
Southern Peach Cobbler with Crown Royal
- 9x13 casserole dish
Peach Cobbler Filling
- 1 32 oz bag frozen peaches
- 2 cups sugar
- 6 tbsp butter
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 2 tsps cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tbsp peach crown royal
- 2 tbsp cinnamon-sugar See notes
- 3 rolls Pillsbury pie crust See notes
- 1 large egg
- 1 Tbsp water
- Preheat oven to 375° F.
- Lightly grease a deep 9x13 casserole dish with butter.
- In a saucepan on medium heat add the frozen peaches, sugar, and butter.
- Once the peaches begin to make a syrup, turn off the heat and add the remaining ingredients - lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and peach crown royal.
- Using a slotted spoon, add the peaches to the casserole dish.
- Once all the peaches have been added, then fill the casserole dish with the remaining syrup - up to 3/4 of the height of the dish. You don't want too much of the juice spilling out into the stove. But you don't want the cobbler to dry out either.
- Begin to roll out the pie crust and cut into strips - long enough to go length-wise down the casserole dish.
- Roll out the 2nd pie crust and cut it into strips - long enough to go width-wise down the casserole dish - to make a lattice top.
- Lay the strips into lattice/criss-cross pattern on top of the peaches and press the ends into the edge of the casserole dish. Use the 3rd pie crust for extras if needed.
- Mix 1 egg and water to make an egg wash. Brush the egg wash on top of the crust, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
- In the center of the oven, bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until the crust is golden brown. If the crust browns before the time, cover with aluminum foil.
- Let the pie rest for about 15 minutes.
- Serve with ice cream and caramel syrup! (optional)
- Pillsbury Pie Crust Rolls are great time savers
- If you don't have cinnamon sugar on hand, you can make this by combining, 1 Tbsp sugar + 1 Tbsp brown sugar + 2 tsp cinnamon.
