What are peach cobbler cookies?

Peach cobbler cookies are the sibling to traditional peach cobbler. These bad boys are loaded with peaches and have tiny biscuit pieces inside instead of on top. They’re fluffy and fruity and will make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. You can use any kind of peaches and any kind of biscuits depending on what you have access to or what type of challenge you’re looking for. In this version we used canned peaches and pre-made biscuits for those who like the easy mode. No matter what you use, these cookies are sure to satisfy! 

Ingredients

  • light brown sugar
  • butter 
  • eggs 
  • vanilla extract
  • all-purpose flour
  • baking soda
  • salt 
  • peaches 
  • cornstarch 
  • biscuit dough
  • cinnamon   

How to make peach cobbler cookies 

The first step in making these yummy peach cobbler cookies is to prepare your peaches. You want to make sure you eliminate as much moisture as possible so that your cookies don’t become overly wet. If they do, they could end up mushy and we don’t want that! No matter what kind of peaches you’re using you’ll want to pat them dry as much as possible with a paper towel. If you’re using fresh, you may want to peel them. If you’re using canned, it’s best to rinse and drain the peaches before patting them dry. And if you’re using frozen, let them thaw completely, drain and then pat them dry. 

When the peaches themselves are ready, chop them into small pieces. Then, in a small bowl, add the peaches along with the cornstarch and mix until it has evenly covered all the peaches. Next, melt the butter and let it cool for a few minutes. Just give it enough time so that it isn’t hot hot. Then, add the butter to a mixing bowl with the sugar. You can choose to either mix by hand or with a stand or hand mixer, it’s completely up to you. If you’re using an electric mixer, mix on medium low and either way, mix until the butter and sugar are completely combined. 

Next, add the eggs and vanilla. Mix again until everything is well combined, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to ensure an even mix. To a separate mixing bowl, add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until combined. Gradually add this dry mixture to the wet dough mixture. I personally like to do this in 2-3 parts. Mix until everything is just barely combined. Then, chop the biscuit dough into tiny pieces. Place it in a bowl and add your cinnamon on top. Mix until the cinnamon has evenly covered all the biscuit pieces.

For the last step of the peach cobbler cookie dough making, add your chopped peaches and biscuit pieces. Mix these in gently by hand using a silicone spatula just until both mix-ins have been evenly distributed. Next, take a medium sized cookie scoop and scoop out the dough onto a lined cookie sheet. Chill the cookies for at least 30 minutes. You can keep them in the fridge for even longer up to overnight. If you’d like to leave them overnight just cover them or keep them in a container.  

After at least 30 minutes, preheat your oven to 350℉. When the oven has heated, place the cookies on another lined baking sheet about 2” apart. Bake them for 8-10 minutes until the edges are golden brown. After that, make sure you give them enough time to cool. This allows the cookies to fully finish baking and set up to become their best, fluffy selves. Once that time has passed you’re ready to dive in and enjoy your peach cobbler cookies! 

How to store 

If you have any peach cobbler cookies leftover, you can store them in an airtight container or bag and keep them in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Because of the fruit, you’ll want to keep these babies refrigerated. If you like them on the warmer side you can always just pop them right into the microwave for a few seconds before enjoying. 

If you would like to keep them for longer than that, you can freeze them. Cookies freeze very well and you have two options for how you’d like to do it. Your first option is to bake all the cookies and let them cool completely before placing them into a freezer safe bag or container. Then, you can keep them in the freezer for up to 3 months. The second option is to keep the dough unbaked. You just have to place the dough itself (in ball form) into a freezer safe bag or container and you can keep that frozen for 3-6 months. 

When you’re ready to have your peach cobbler cookies you can take out the dough and thaw it to room temperature. Then, you just have to bake them exactly how you would normally and you have freshly baked cookies on demand! This is my personal favourite way of freezing cookies! They’re so good when they’re baked fresh and you’ve already done most of the heavy lifting for yourself. Who doesn’t want fresh cookies when the craving hits?!
