Peach Cobbler is maybe my favorite dessert to make during the summer. It’s so easy, so simple, and so delicious. Serve it warm with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream and it’s a dessert you won’t soon forget.

This recipe is a little bit different from the normal peach cobbler I make. Instead of a biscuit-like topping, this topping tastes just like an oatmeal cookies- and it’s absolutely delicious.

My daughter had to be scolded for trying to eat all of the topping off. But not scolded too badly. One bite of the topping and you’ll want to eat it all too. The topping is a little bit chewy, more than a little bit sweet, and oh so good.

Be sure to use very ripe peaches when making a peach cobbler. If your peaches aren’t at peak ripeness, you may want to add some more sugar to the filling. Since the topping is very sweet and I like to put a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on my cobbler, I don’t make the filling all that sweet.

  1. I made this for dessert tonight. I had ten fresh ripe peaches to use. After I peeled and sliced them I ended up having exactly six cups of peaches which is what I needed for the recipe. It turned out delicious! I love the topping especially. It really did taste like oatmeal cookies. i did sprinkle some apple pie spice on top of the peaches before I put the topping on. Gave it just a subtle bit of spice flavor. I will definitely add this to my
    cobbler recipes to make again. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This was THEBest peach cobbler ever!!! I used canned pie filling with spices added and added cinnamon and cloves to dough as well. I would eat the whole pan if I could get away with it👏

  3. Love to try for a potluck at work. I have 24 ppl to make it for, so triple the recipe since it serves 8?

  4. I made this last night for the fam. Huge hit!! I used frozen peaches and frozen blueberries mixed because I only had about 3 cups of peaches. It was amazing!! Hubby is the ultimate cobbler fan but I am not a baker. He’s very very stingy with the compliments usually and he raved about this. The topping is the best we’ve ever had!! Thank you for the promotion of best cobbler baker in the family — this recipe even beats our 80 year old Dutch aunt’s famous one!!

  5. When it comes to cobblers, peach is my fave! And when it comes to cookies, I love me an oatmeal one – and you brilliantly put the two together! Right now, be glad that I am not right next to this deliciousness as I think I could set an all time record of finishing it all up! 🙂

      1. I am making this for an event tomorrow night, but wanted to get most of it ready this evening and bake it fresh just before. Do you think I could make the cookie dough all they way and leave it in the fridge till tomorrow night? Also, have you tried it with canned peaches in case I can’t find good ripe ones?

        1. I haven’t tried making the dough that far in advance, but it should work fine. Let me know how it turns out. I’ve only used fresh ripe peaches, but I would definitely use canned or frozen over peaches that aren’t really ripe.

          1. I did not make it ahead, as I was making it for the first time for a group, so I just measured everything the night before so I could make it in a hurry. I will try making the cookie crust ahead next time. I used half frozen and half canned peaches. It was a big hit. Thank you for the recipe.

  6. I made this tonight for dessert it tasted wonderful but turned out very dry almost like cookie with peaches in side. I followed the directions exact I used fresh peaches rather then canned I don’t know if that made the difference. I was wondering if you might be able to tell me what may went wrong? Very good flavor and look forward to trying the recipe again in hopes next time achieving a runny cobler.

    1. Hi Emily! Sorry it didn’t turn out juicy. It probably has to do with the peaches. We live right next to a peach farm and are able to get fresh peaches and I let them ripen on the counter until extremely ripe. When I slice them there is so much juice it runs down my hand to my arm. Store bought peaches are unlikely to ever be this juicy. I would use frozen peaches over those bought at a super market.

      1. I agree, the peaches I used were really juicy and ran down my hand as I cut them, very moist recipe for the most part. topped with Vanilla bean ice cream and you’ve gained a piece of Heaven!!!…Amazing recipe, thank you!!!

  7. What a fabulous flavor combo! Love the ease of it too. Mouth-watering! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Weekend Potluck. Please come back soon…and be sure to enjoy a lovely weekend.

  8. Oatmeal cookie on top of peach cobbler would be more than I could stand — my kids would have to scold me, I think! This looks just delicious, Christin! 🙂

  9. WOW! this looks beyond delicious! Like out of this world tasty! YUM!! And I’m literally salivating over here! YUM 🙂 Great recipe!

  10. The topping on a cobbler is my favorite part since I don’t love cooked fruit. This is right up my alley and I need it right this second.

  11. This looks SO GOOD! I am just like your daughter, and I would want to eat all the topping off this. Whenever I scoop myself cobbler, I always do a “diagonal” scoop so I get a ton of topping on top of the fruit. Sneaky me!

  12. This looks like the best peach cobbler ever, Christin! This is my all-time favorite dessert (I often request this or peach pie for my birthday), so I’m loving the fact that you made it an “oatmeal cookie” cobbler! Looks amazing! Pinned!

  13. I can see why your daughter wanted to eat all the topping. I would probably do the same thing! This looks seriously amazing, Christin! I’ve still gotta get around to making a peach cobbler this summer. I think I’m gonna start with this recipe. 😉 Pinned!

  14. OMG!!!!! And oatmeal cookie topping????? I loveeeeee this idea!!!! I would make a separate batch of the topping just so I can eat it by the spoonful, sounds sooooo delish! And to combine it with those sweet, summery peaches and a LARGE scoop of vanilla ice cream!!!!! Woooooow!!!!! Just imagining it is making my stomach rumble!!!! Totally Pinning this!!!! <3

  15. I am so excited for peach season here which is very soon – this cobbler would be perfect to use them up:) I love the sound of this oatmeal topping instead of biscuits, it looks incredible!
