Peaches and Cream Cobbler has an extra layer of goodness with bursts of sweet cream flavor in every bite. A velvety mixture of vanilla, brown sugar, and cream cheese is spooned over the peaches before the cobbler bakes. Peaches and sweet cream are a match made in heaven and the cream cheese holds together without melting so you don’t lose any of that creamy flavor. 

This peach cobbler recipe is made a bit differently from a traditional peach cobbler with a thick crust on top of a sugary peach pie filling. Instead, the flour and butter mixture bakes up around the peaches and cream cheese mixture for a crispy topping with a gooey, cake like filling. You want to to be careful as you add the flour mixture over the melted butter so that it doesn’t really mix together. To make it easy, spoon the dry ingredients evenly over the butter and gently even out before adding the peach layer.

VARIATIONS ON PEACHES AND CREAM COBBLER

  • Peaches: You can use fresh peaches or canned peaches instead of frozen peach slices. Fresh peaches are going to be more firm and could be more tart. If you use canned peaches, rinse off any peach syrup and reduce the white sugar to ½ cup.
  • Berries: Peaches taste delicious with fresh berries! Layer up to 1 cup fresh blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, or blackberries with the peaches. Be sure to thaw and drain frozen berries before using.
  • Fruit: Instead of peaches, try this cream cheese cobbler with bananas, apples, plums, pineapple, strawberries, cherries, or figs. You can do a mixed fruit cobbler too, using fresh or frozen fruit and berries.
  • Cake Mix: Swap all dry ingredients (except the brown sugar) in the cake layer with a boxed cake mix. The best ones to use are white cake mix or yellow cake mix. You could also use a package of dry sugar cookie mix. If you use cake mix or cookie mix, you should still use the brown sugar to get a nice caramel flavor.
  • Cream Cheese: Instead of cream cheese, you can use mascarpone cheese, ricotta cheese, greek yogurt or sour cream. You could also use vanilla pudding mix or use cream cheese and add the dry pudding mix to the cake batter.
  • Spices: Give your Peaches and Cream Cobbler a little warm spiced flavor with ground cinnamon, nutmeg, or Pumpkin Pie Spice.
