Skillet Peach Cobbler

Skillet Peach Cobbler

We invited friends to our cabin last weekend, and I wanted to make something special for dessert while they were there.  I love using mini cast iron skillets (I found mine at Cost Plus World Market) for all kinds of things at the cabin from appetizers to breakfast, but this time I thought it would be fun to use them to make individual peach cobblers.  They turned out so well, I thought I would share the recipe.

This is a classic peach cobbler with very basic ingredients so the flavor of the peaches really shines through.  The best part about it is the crumble on top.  It is absolutely delicious!  It has brown sugar for richness, and just a bit of cinnamon for flavor, as well as vanilla.  It is the best crumble recipe I have found.  If you don’t have mini skillets, you can just use 6-inch ramekins or 1 large cast iron skillet and adjust the baking time accordingly.  This makes enough for 4 individual servings, but it is quite a lot for one person so I hand out 1 pan for every 2 people and 2 spoons.  It’s more fun that way anyway!  I have tried every way I know how to get ice cream up to our cabin without melting, because it almost seems like a crime to serve a cobbler without some ice cream on top.   As you can see, though, it is pretty remote, and so far I haven’t been successful, even with dry ice.  If you have any ideas about that, be sure to let me know.  I took a can of whipped cream, and we enjoyed that instead, but ice cream would have been a lot better!

Some time I will have to write a post and show you some pictures of the cabin and the area around there.  It is such an amazing place.  But in the meantime, I couldn’t resist showing a picture of the sunset last weekend.  Every night it was like a show, just looking out at the sky and seeing what it was going to be like that evening.  Arizona may not have the seasons that other states do, but we definitely make up for it in sunsets!

I hope you enjoy this cobbler as much as we did if you are still able to get peaches where you are.  I think that may be the last peach dessert we have for a while, but there is always next year.  In the meantime, I think I am finally ready to embrace fall (or the hope of fall in the near future – everything is a little later here).  And we are all definitely ready for some cooler weather!

  1. Looks delicious Shari. Enjoy the rest of Fall. Spring has just began here and I am looking forward to some sunshine. 🙂 🙂 Milanka

  2. Your cabin looks like it’s in a beautiful location and that cobbler in the skilling is divine!!

    What a great idea to make cobbler in a skillet! And what beautiful scenery to enjoy it in! 🙂

  4. Gorgeous photographs Shari. And delicious looking cobbler! I’m going to make one this weekend. The peaches are still so juicy and delicious at the markets. Awww, the desert. I grew up in the Nevada desert and I miss it at times.

    • Shari says:

      Thank you so much, Seana! Yes, the desert has a way of growing on you. I think I would miss it, too, if I moved away. I really appreciate you stopping by. Enjoy your weekend!

  5. A delicious looking flavorful Cobbler, Shari. Love the picture of the sunset! 🙂

    • Shari says:

      Thanks so much, Linda! We really enjoyed it. The sunsets are amazing at our cabin. Probably because we can see so much farther. They never fail to impress! I appreciate you stopping by!

  6. Barbara says:

    Looks very good in that skillet. I have a big 12 inch cast iron skillet. I bet the cast iron helps make the fruit all gooey. I also suppose you could make the cobbler on a grill over indirect heat. I’ll have to try that.

  7. This sounds delicious Shari! The skyline from your cabin was just beautiful. I can’t wait to hear the details of your cabin. Enjoy your weekend!

  8. I bet the sunsets in Arizona are incredibly beautiful and dramatic. And what better way to enjoy them than with a peach cobbler!

    I love any kind of fruit cobbler, and this one sounds (and looks) wonderful. I can almost taste it now, with vanilla ice cream… Mmm! Thanks for this.

    • Shari says:

      You’re so welcome, Ruth! Dramatic is a good way to describe the sunsets in Arizona. At least in the summer. We are still experiencing the monsoons which really makes for good sunsets. Probably not too much longer, though. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Shari, the sunset is beautiful, would love to see pictures of your cabin and the area. Beautiful peach cobbler.

    I probably will just use one large iron skillet because i don’t have 6 inch ones. This looks delicious!
